crossfitI recently signed up for Crossfit in Hoboken, which is a gym that is known for high intensity group workouts.  I quickly discovered that it is different than a typical gym and encourages a sense of community.

Crossfit has a program they call “Hope for Kenya”.  The program allows you to collect donations in order to participate in a workout that took place on February 16th, 2013.  The workout was AMRAP (As many rounds as possible) in 12 minutes of: 50 Air Squats, 30 push ups, 15 pull ups.  The workout was difficult and exhausting, but well worth it.  All donations are used to supply, food, water, and education in and around Mombasa, Kenya.  The event raised over $250,000 across the country.

Most of the deeds have been in and around my local community.  Hope for Kenya allowed me to help people across the world.  It is a trend I would like to continue as I complete the rest of the deeds.
