This week’s blog is about an issue I was not aware of until very recently. I good friend of DogTown’s, and a good friend of mine, Emily Hopkins, and her colleagues will be travelling halfway across the planet for a special cause.
I will let her explain what this cause is, and how you can help, in her own words…
I'm going with a small group to Bangladesh at the end of this month to work with a house of girls who were born in, and later saved from the brothels thanks to the work of Speak Up and Light Bangladesh.
There are 6 of us going, and each of us has a different skill set to offer (music, videography, self defense, English as a second language, and dance) and we're going with the goal of helping these girls develop skills and an education so that they can enjoy the rest of their lives out of the brothels and instead become noteworthy, healthy, and powerful leaders.
With the help of Liz, we're doing a fundraiser WOD on Sunday, July 22nd at 9:30 AM to help with the cost of the trip.
The workout will be easily scalable but there will only be a prize pack for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place RX finishers. WOD details will be posted closer to the date.
There is a $20 minimum suggested donation to attend, but anything is appreciated! For more information or to donate outside of this fundraiser, please see our IndieGoGo page at:
DogTown CrossFit is very proud to have Emily Hopkins give so much of her time, energy, and abilities to an amazingly worthy cause. Safe travels!
