Military Families in Need of our Help
My name is David Blair, fellow crossfitter at CrossFit NYC. Those of you over the past few months that have taken the 6:15PM beginner class or more recently the 5:45/6:45PM intermediate classes have likely seen me around. Like many of you, I am currently training for the Civilian Military Combine (“CMC”) Urban Assault in Brooklyn on September 22, 2012. It is an amazing event that also allows us to support one of our own Sean Rogers, co-founder of CMC. One of the goals of CMC is to help support charities, specifically military charities like the Tri-State Chapter of Operation Homefront.
Operation Homefront provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors. Emergency assistance includes, but is not limited to, things like food, rent, utility bills or simple car repairs – the necessities that many of us take for granted. I have been on the board of OH-Tri-State for over two years and my passion to help our military service members and their families has grown exponentially. The sacrifices they make for our country may never be able to be repaid and as the soldiers come home the need is only going to grow. I think all of you would agree that anyone who is in the military or part of a military family is part of OUR community, whether crossfitter or not. Well…members of our community are in need of our help.
For those of you competing in the CMC who would like to raise money for Operation Homefront, please email me at David_Blair6 AT hotmail DOT com and I will set you up with a website to start fundraising. If you are not interested in fundraising on your own but would like to contribute, also included is a link to my fundraising page . Additionally, you can visit the Operation Homefront Tri-State website for more information. If anyone has any questions or would like to learn more about Operation Homefront, please feel free to contact me at the e-mail above. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I appreciate any and all support you can provide.
