Our first load of equipment from Again Faster was delivered last Wednesday night. Ian and Mike ( owners of Oside and King of the beach) were there to help us unload and give us an overview of the situation. Oside CrossFit is on the mend but still without power. Between donations from Again faster and Rogue Fitness we will be able to bring Oside a long way back to full operational ability soon. Oside’s biggest need now is rubber flooring and a good cleaning.
CrossFit King of the Beach is totally wiped out. Between the flood and diesel fuel spill that gym will be out of operation for some time. The good news is they have a second location in Island Park and all donations are going to get that gym up and operational.
Concept 2 and Jim Phelps from CrossFixit equipment repair services will have KOB’s fleet of rowers restored to like new by then end of today.
Steve’s Club generously donated a huge box of Paleo kits to keep everyone fueled.
Another shipment of equipment is due in from Rogue Fitness in the next couple of days and will be distributed between Oside, KOB and CrossFit Volition.
We are still in need of cash donations to help purchase rubber flooring for these gyms. If you would like to help please click on the link provided and donaate today.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to helping these guys get back on their feet.
Our relief efforts have now grown to inlcude 3 CrossFit gyms damaged on Long Island by storm Sandy. Many individuals and several equipment companies have stepped up to aid our community and we cannot thank them enough. However the scope of their needs are larger than any one company or individual can solve on their own.
So we are asking other equipment companies to please step in and help us out. Your company will recieve a big thank you on our site and Facebook page and the appreciation of the greater CrossFit community.
If you can help in any way please contact us at email@example.com
So far we have identified 3 box’s located on Long island that need our help. CrossFit Oside, CrossFit King of the Beach and CrossFit Volition. There were all pretty much beach front when the storm hit. We intend to do our best to help them all.
We are collection donations in Connecticut at CrossFit Relentless and CrossFit Milford for used equipment. Anything can help so please consider dropping off equipment by next Wednesday.
We are working with Concept 2, Again Faster, Life as Rx and other equipment suppliers to help these people regain their feet.
We are in need of money as well. To date we have collected a little over $500. We have a goal of collecting $25,000 by December 8th. Please donate if you can on the link below.
Please pass the word and do what you can to help our community.
Thank you all.
