At CrossFit O.U.R. we do fitness for a cause and that is to support Operation Underground Railroad. If there’s one cause on which we can all agree, it’s that no child should be sexually exploited. Operation Underground Railroad is an organization that exists to rescue children from sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. They offer freedom and healing to survivors of human trafficking and exploitation through direct intervention and aftercare.
Through our events, we aim to create stories around fitness for supporters of this cause and also raise awareness about the issue of human trafficking. We want to invite YOU to be a part of that story, and share with your community your story with CrossFit O.U.R.
On July 1st, CrossFit OUR is challenged the fitness community to Rise Up and spread awareness for the Organization and the Mission by performing the specially written “Get Fit, Save Kids” workout. The challenge was simple. Gather your community, family, and friends, do the workout, and share your “Why” behind supporting to raise awareness. The workout was simple, accessible, and low equipment, so you could do it anywhere; Gym, Garage, or Park! As an added way to show support, individuals signed up for our online leaderboard, created by Stream Fitness Live, and posted videos and scores. Registration was a $20 donation through the Stream platform, and as an added thank you, our partners provided premium promo codes to all who registered.

In CrossFit, when a service member dies in the line of duty the CrossFit community comes together to honor that hero by writing and completing a tribute workout in their name. Since the idea was started with “The Murph”, thousands of workouts have been written in tribute to the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice. This is our way of remembering and showing our gratitude, it’s our moment of silence. These “Hero Wods”, as they are called, are notorious for being long, grueling, and extremely difficult by themselves. The question and story behind 12 heroes is “Can we do 12 in a row, for 12 hours?”. This long-haul challenge is simultaneously a test of mental toughness and human perseverance and an ultimate tribute for those they are written for. OUR has a history of working with active and veterans of the services, so the synergy of CrossFit OUR showing our gratefulness for these 12 heroes and their sacrifice pairs well.
The premise of the event is simple. One tribute workout an hour for 12 hours, ending with the most famous of them all, MURPH. Around that we will have influencers, media, raffles, prizes, etc. to create the story, so that we can and spread awareness. Whether the story for is “Did you hear about this crazy thing these people did, it was for OUR- What is OUR, let me tell you” or “OUR honors the service men and women, I was a part of that.” there are a lot of opportunities for story creation.
