“WOD for Wounded Warriors”
This WOD is being sponsored by the Army of Darkness (AKA Salt Shakerz, Seazoned Salt, & Bushwood LC), which is a national charity lacrosse team. This particular event will benefit the Colorado Shoot for Soldiers. The team will be making an appearance in Baltimore, Long Island, Colorado, and Ohio.
Shootout for Soldiers is a 24-hour lacrosse event benefiting wounded American veterans. Every dollar that teams fundraise for the event goes directly to top-rated charities supporting Veterans such as the Gary Sinise Foundation, Semper Fi Fund, Army Ranger Lead the Way Fund and Team RWB. Local Colorado charities are also awarded distributions from this event. All donations received will be made in the name of CrossFit Park Hill.
Some statistics you should know:
- The VA estimates there are nearly 400,000 untreated cases of post-traumatic stress disorder.
- A Rand report estimates that 26% of returning combat veterans may have mental health conditions (PTSD, anxiety, depression).
- A new VA study finds that 20 veterans commit suicide a day.
