WHAT IS TEAM RUBICON: To put it simply, Team Rubicon unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with medical professionals to rapidly deploy emergency response teams into crisis situations. Team Rubicon strives to "Bridge the Gap" between when a disaster occurs and when conventional aid organizations are able to respond.
WHAT IS THE TEAM RUBICON VETERANS DAY CHALLENGE: The Challenge is a call to action to the CrossFit community to support America's veterans as they continue to sacrifice by providing disaster aid and relief. We ask you to join us and others all around the country in a Veteran's Day Hero WOD (workout of the day) chosen by yourself or your local CrossFit affiliate.
WHY NO DESIGNATED WOD: The Challenge slogan is "One Day, One Goal: Support a Veteran." To reach the broadest audience and to emphasize that every veteran is worthy of recognition, we are leaving selection of the particular Hero WOD up to you or your local affiliate.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE: Anyone. You don't have to be a veteran or a CrossFitter. You just have to want to make a difference.
WHEN: The Challenge will take place the weekend of Veteran's Day (11/10/2012). However, you can do your Hero WOD anytime during the week before or after.
WHERE: Wherever you live, work, or are currently located. Many gyms are hosting events, but it can be done anywhere. Just pick a Hero WOD that goes with the equipment you have and start a clock.
WHY: To raise money directly for Team Rubicon veteran reintegration efforts and disaster aid and relief missions.
HOW MUCH: Registration is $35, and includes a 2012 Challenge shirt designed, produced, and shipped directly to you by Team Rubicon veterans.
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO: All proceeds go to support Team Rubicon and its mission.
HOW: Register on this StayClassy page and head to your local CrossFit gym!
