Check in for Charity – August 2017

By: 0

We started Check-In for Charity to help support the many local charitable organizations that are near and dear to our members. We want to be able to give back and get the entire community involved in the process. Our community is the backbone of O’Hare CrossFit and we are here to support you!

How It Works
Each month we will select a new local charity based on a member recommendation. Members then need to check-in to OCF on Facebook at every visit. We will then donate $1 for every check-in to a different local charity each month. (Donations will be limited to $500 per month)

Charity for August 2017

Member – Natalie Kempa

The cause hits close to home because two very important women in my life have been victims of domestic violence. It is a horrible thing to live through, but they are living proof that there is a way out and that there are inspiring survivor success stories out there. I joined this team because many women feel that they are stuck, or are too afraid to leave, and by raising money I hope it helps more women seek out help and realize they deserve better.

Run Domestic Violence Out of Town is a group of runners that supports 10 domestic violence agencies and shelters in the Chicagoland area. Their goal is to raise money and awareness. All money raised is used by the agencies for domestic violence prevention and supportive services for its survivors and their families.

I will be running with the team on September 24, 2017.
