BENEFITING: COVENANT HOUSE FLORIDA INC
EVENT DATE: Dec 17, 2015
Burpees For Bucks is SUBU CrossFit's annual holiday fundraiser event that promotes awareness for local causes and raises money for those in need.
Our team, which consists primarily of our gym members, commits to performing one burpee for every dollar that we raise. Our past campaigns have been very successful and we have been able to provide presents, daily living supplies, and even a partial home makeover for disadvantaged youth in Orlando.
This year, we have chosen benefit Covenant House Fl; an oraganization that we have grown to really admire. Every dollar we raise this year will go directly toward the aid and assistance of homeless or at-risk kids that otherwise would have to remain on the streets.
About Covenant House Florida:
Covenant House Florida serves runaway, homeless, and at-risk youth under 21 including teen parents and their babies.
Each year, we reach hundreds of kids in Fort Lauderdale and Orlando via street outreach, crisis shelters, transitional housing projects, and aftercare, making Covenant House Florida one of the largest private agencies serving runaway and homeless youth in the state of Florida.
The demand for emergency shelter currently exceeds our financial capacity, and we have waiting lists in both Fort Lauderdale and Orlando. We ask all referral sources, e.g. law enforcement personnel, social service representatives, pastors, teachers, and guidance counselors, as well as youth and parents seeking help to call ahead to determine if a bed is available.
