On November 11th, CrossFit 7220 will host a special event to help raise funds to provide Student Veterans with access to emergency funds as a safety net for those who served our country and are struggling to meet their financial demands as a college student. Funds can be used for emergency expenses that the GI Bill and other financial aid might not cover such as medical issues, basic car repairs, crucial bills, and other unexpected expenses.
The WOD will run at all regular class times on Friday November 11th.
5:00 am, 6:00 am, 11:00 am, noon, 4:30 pm, 5:30 pm
Community members are welcome to drop in to any class (no prior CrossFit experience necessary).
Other gyms throughout the state will be participating.
We know our great community at CrossFit 7220 will come out and support this great cause. Bring a friend!
In 2014 the Veterans Center at the UW campus developed an emergency fund for student Veterans in response to the growing need among this student population for financial support. The assistance program called the Student Veterans Emergency Assistance Fund (SVEAF) provides financial support to student Veterans experiencing an emergency financial crisis in their efforts to obtain a college degree. The program has received some grant assistance from the WY Veterans Commission but has since been depleted in funds.
We encourage everyone to make donations to the Student Veterans Emergency Assistance Fund at the gym on the 11th. If you won’t make it and/or would rather contribute online access online donations at: https://securelb.imodules.com/s/1254/14/interior.aspx?SID=1254&GID=1&PGID=366&CID=985
