ʻOnipaʻa KauaʻiIn response to this past weekend’s natural disaster on Kauaʻi, we are calling upon the community to come together and lend a helping hand by participating in a tribute Aloha WOD written by Kaua'i native, Kahala CrossFit coach, and programmer, Rico Jimenez called, ʻOnipaʻa Kauaʻi.
We feel it's our duty to raise funds and awareness to help the survivors of this natural disaster get back on their feet and are looking to help the Hanalei-Haena Flooding Fund reach their goal of raising $1,000,000 to provide clean water, food, and shelter for those displaced.
We understand that this is a lot to ask. Times are hard and schedules are tight, but we truly believe that we can come together to make a difference.
The Event and Workout
Teams of 4 will particpate in the workout below. Suggested donation for each partcipant is $20.
The donations go directly to the Hanalei-Haʻena Flooding Fund Go Fund Me - its an ʻOhana on Kauaʻi that is known for helping the community. When members/participants go onto the Go Fund Me to "register," you can choose to donate it to a specific town, family (if they know someone from Kauaʻi), or even for specific items. All you need to do is specify what theyʻd like the funds to go towards.
If you would like to donate, you can donate directly here: https://www.gofundme.com/hanaleihaena-flooding-fund
