Resource, and Camp Patriot.

Even preschoolers will participate, noted Debbie Rakos, a manager at Ramona’s CrossFit Brand X. “They’ll do their own skilled version of the workout,” she said.

Over 8,000 CrossFit athletes from over 1,200 locations around the world, will perform Saturday’s grueling workout, stated Rakos.

The athletes are obtaining pledges or donations for the charities.

The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides full scholarship grants and educational and family counseling to the surviving children of special operations personnel who die in operational or training missions, and immediate financial assistance to those who were severely wounded.

Infant Swim Resource’s mission is “Not One More Child Drowns.” CrossFit Kids has sponsored survival swimming lessons and want to make such lessons are accessible to children in cities around the world.

Camp Patriot is a nonprofit that takes disabled U.S. Veterans on outdoor adventures.

Ramona’s CrossFit event will be held at 423 Maple St. It will start at 10:15 a.m. and will last about an hour, said Rakos.

  1. When I saw this post, I was intrigued with the title.

    I remember watching this sort-of, kind-of sport which has been been participated by the "strongest man" in the world. I can't recall the title of the program but once I remember it, I will post it here.
