The average age of a homeless person is 9 years old, and approximately 20% of homeless children in our country are represented in California.
It is our goal, in collaboration with kettlebells4kids, to further our mission to bring fitness to those with financial and lifestyle barriers, as fitness has been proven to improve a child’s ability to learn, reduce social and emotional stress, and positively impact overall physical and mental health.
We also intend to bring awareness to the community that the word “homeless” does not only apply to adults, and that by coming together, we can help break the cycle of homelessness by starting with children.
Join us for a fun-filled morning with a workout for both adults and children, raffle, and a game sponsored by local favorite Taffy’s Pizza. CrossFit Santa Barbara will provide breakfast snacks and beverages, and free childcare will be provided by Bright Horizons Family Solutions. Other sponsors include Alaris Fitness and The SANDBOX.
