On Saturday 10th December we are joining other CrossFit gyms around the world for a special WOD dedicated to survivors of sexual violence.
This day marks the end of 16 Days of Activism (25 Nov – 10 Dec), a time to raise awareness & eliminate gender-based violence.
The WOD is part of Project Bra, organised by ex-CrossFit GVA member Claire McFarlane. Claire is currently attempting to run 16km of beach in every coastal country in the world in under 3 years. This is a global campaign of peaceful action to give a voice to those who have been raped, remove the taboo around rape, raise funds for healing programs and ultimately open a dialogue so that lasting change can be made.
For more information about Project Bra, please visit www.projectbra.org.
This will be a team WOD that will be part of our regular Saturday classes.
The WOD is as follows:
This is a two part workout: A & B
Team up in pairs. You’ll be working together as a team to keep the bar off the ground throughout workout A.
