We are just about a week away from our November Community Fundraiser! This year we have chosen to support Danbury Youth Services and their mission to serve and support low income youth in our community.
Did you know…39% (or 6,801) of Danbury’s population ages 0-17 live in poverty?!
This is why the programs DYS offers are so important. They give low income youth, lacking opportunities, the chance to gain valuable life skills in an environment that is safe and comfortable. Most importantly, through the integration of youth development curriculum DYS programs build confident youth better able to handle the stresses and challenges that life can present. This leads to more positive academic achievements, and helps build strong relationships at home, school, and in the community.
For the past 50 years Danbury Youth Services has offered youth counseling services, various youth development programs, and they work with local employers to help connect youth who may be looking for first time work experience and opportunities. Danbury Youth Services is a private nonprofit agency, and is supported through the fundraising efforts of its community.
We are proud to help support their efforts! This Fundraiser workout will begin at 10am and is open to anyone in the community. We will offer multiple scaling and partner/team options. We will also be running a CrossFit Kids workout in the annex. We ask for a minimum $10 donation per person to workout, and will also be raising funds through a $5 raffle! We’ve got personal training, kids memberships, gift bags, baskets etc up for raffle! It’s also not too late to donate goods/services to our raffle. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible!
We hope to see you all there!
