Kettlebells4Kids Fundraiser – Monday, September 19th
Kettlebells4kids is on a mission to raise $2.5million to represent the 2.5 million homeless children in America. CrossFit Southie is joining forces with Kettlebells4Kids to try to help them on this mission! We will be completing the workout along with gyms all over the country on Monday, September 19th. Leading up to that day, we’ll be on a mission to help raise money to support Kettlebells4Kids in their efforts.
All money raised goes directly to building active play and fitness programs that help homeless children all over America. Even better, all money raised at CrossFit Southie will stay in Massachusetts to help our own kids. Let’s get homeless kids moving in a new direction! Getting involved is simple! There is no cost to register to participate in the workout, and there are different options for how you’d like to get involved.

Pulling for Hope: September 25th
On September 2th, a team of Southie CrossFitters are participating in the American Cancer Society’s 2nd Annual Pulling For Hope of Boston, where they will be pulling a 150 passenger JetBlue plane. They are more than just pulling a plane, they are raising money for the American Cancer Society. All money raised goes to help people with cancer:
– Have the information and tools they need to stay well from cancer or find the disease early, when it’s easiest to treat.
– Have a place to turn for help 24/7 if they are facing cancer
– Benefit from the progress being made towards finding cancer’s causes and cures
– Get access to lifesaving screenings and treatment
Currently there are 4 spots left on the CFS Team! if you would like to join the team (first come first serve), please click HERE to sign up. Team name is 5:30HTK (hard to kill)
You can also help fight cancer and by supporting the team’s fundraising efforts by making a donation. Please click HERE to make a donation. Funds raised will bring us one step closer to a world with less cancer and more birthdays, a world where not another life is lost to the disease.
