On 28th Oct 2017, I will be participating in Operation Broken Wing 2017. A CrossFit fundraising event for the youth beneficiaries of REACH. This year will be my 3rd year participating in this event to fundraise for this cause personally!
As a social worker myself at REACH, I often come across many individuals and families that often crack under the heavy stresses of life inspite of the safety nets that are in place today. Thus this is where I decided that more needs to be done by us the larger society.
For this OBW 2017, I will be wanting to do something extra on top of the workout.
For every repetition that I complete in the event, that will be the number of youth beneficiaries that I will reach out to from Nov - Dec 2017 personally. For every dollar raised through my workout, I will organize an outreach session where a meal will be prepared and I will be personally letting them know what Operation Broken Wing is all about and therefore create a spark of hope for them.
I aim to reach out to at least a 100 youth beneficiaries where $10 will be spent on each youth for the session.
