We all have charity causes that we believe in. The Do More Charity Challenge allows you to choose the cause that YOU believe in and compete on their behalf. It is a two-fold fundraising event. Your team raises money for your charity prior to the event. Then, on the day of the competition, you compete to win thousands of dollars in additional prize money for your charity! We work all year to raise the prize money that is distributed to the top teams. In 2015, the first year of the event, and again in 2016, the FRCF Do More Charity Challenge raised over $200 thousand dollars for charities! We hope to exceed that in 2017.
The Do More Charity Challenge is the only event in the CrossFit world where you can earn money for your charity of choice with your athletic performance.
