How to Get Involved
Anyone can participate in the Support Your Local Box Fundraiser. Payment is not required. We understand that many face financial difficulties at this time and want everyone to have the opportunity to participate without barriers. Your participation is, in itself, a strong form of support and encouragement to the affiliate community.
When you register, you will have the option to select a contribution amount ranging from $20 to $1,000 or participate at no cost. Participants can also select the affiliate they would like to receive their contribution. When the competition closes, the proceeds will be distributed to affiliates in accordance with their roster of supporters. CrossFit, Inc. will distribute all registration funds to the designated affiliates.
How to Contribute
Every CrossFit affiliate, trainer, and participant has been impacted by COVID-19, but we recognize some gyms will have greater needs than others in the coming weeks and months. All participants can use social media to direct and encourage contributions to their own affiliate or another affiliate in the community that needs our help. This is also an opportunity to rally family and friends to participate in this accessible event.
Support Your Affiliate: If your affiliate is in great need, select your affiliate in the registration process to have your registration pass directly to your box.
Support a Box in Need: If your affiliate is in a relatively strong position, this is an opportunity to support those less fortunate by partnering with a box or boxes in the hardest hit areas and channeling aid to them.
Find a Box: If you’re new to CrossFit, would like to participate and contribute, but don’t know which box to support, you can use the map to find a box near you or in your hometown.
For all of us, this is also a chance to share the benefits of CrossFit with friends and family. Not only do we have an opportunity to raise funds for affiliates and trainers in need, but we can use this charitable event to bring CrossFit into the garages and living rooms of our loved ones. We encourage everyone to share the free and accessible scaled versions of the event workouts with those in their lives for whom this could be an entry point into improving their own fitness and health as part of the global CrossFit community.
Note: Registration fees and additional contributions to the Support Your Local Box Fundraiser are not tax deductible.
