PRLog - Oct. 15, 2012 - Charleston, SC – On November 3rd and 4th, 2012 CrossFit gyms around the world will unite together to host the 1st Annual “Iron Oar Challenge”. Athletes across the globe will be able to row for a reason and show their support for our military families. All of the funds raised will be donated to Operation R&R Charleston, 31 Heroes Project, and The Disposable Heroes Project.
Athletes and gyms can now register on our website Ironoar.org to host the Challenge or participate in the row-a-thon. The cost for an athlete to register for a time slot, which is 30 minutes, is $15. If an athlete raises $25 they receive an event t-shirt.
Crave Mt. Pleasant will also be the location for an after-event get together for all local CrossFit athletes participating in the event. There will be live music, appetizers, and a great atmosphere to mingle.
The Iron Oar Challenge is proud to announce our title sponsor as Complete Nutrition. Complete Nutrition is located in West Ashley and their brand new store in the Mt. Pleasant Town Center. Other sponsors include Concept 2 Rowing, Life As Rx, Defined Therapeutic Massage, and Climb On Products. We are currently still seeking sponsors for this event, if you’d like more information please contact Scott Levesque at Scott@ironoar.org or Colette Peterman at Colette@ironoar.org.
Operation R&R Charleston was founded in September of 2011 and since then has given over 75 families from Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina and Fort Bragg, North Carolina a chance to reconnect with their families after the stressful time of a deployment with a complimentary vacation to the Charleston area.
