A note from Amy LaFleche-
CrossFit Calgary and members donated a total of $200 for the children at the Warithang Orphanage in Tibet who, as a result, received new skipping ropes, basketballs, soccer balls, and dodge balls. I had the opportunity to personally deliver the new gear and can tell you first hand that the kids were so incredibly excited and truly grateful.
When I first arrived at the orphanage the kids were playing with a flat basketball that didn’t bounce and another game using rocks. Thanks to CFC, by the time I left they were organizing their own leap frog and wheelbarrow races, playing basketball and soccer non-stop, doing burpees and double unders, and having a ridiculous amount of fun with it all.
On behalf of the Himalayan Orphanage Project, the 182 orphans living at the orphanage, and for myself personally, I would like to give the biggest thank you to CFC and community for all of your donations, encouragement, and support. A very special thanks to Chantal who helped coordinate the fundraising and the planning of the games.
