Gaining strength and stability, improving longevity, and empowering individuals are all goals Crossfit Central and Austin Habitat for Humanity work toward daily. Although their work is different, this year Habitat and Crossfit are teaming up to sponsor and build a home for a deserving low-income family in Austin.
17 Trainers from Crossfit have pledged to raise $2,000 with their teams. Each team will then have the opportunity to come out, sweat, work, and swing a hammer for two Saturdays and help build the home side-by-side with the home-owner to be.
You can follow the progress of all the teams fundraising and the progress of the build here: www.habitatfitnesschallenge.com.
This is Austin Habitat, and this is what we know.
Substandard. Overcrowded. Cost-burdensome.
More than 60,000 working Austin families live like this in poverty housing.
We need change.
Everyone deserves a simple, decent and affordable place to live. It changes everything.
Together we can end the cycle of poverty. Together we can change lives.
