Doing our bit
We believe we all need to do our bit, whether it's helping out at local community events, donating to good causes or simply helping someone who needs a little support. It's our chance to try and make the world a better place. Here are a few things we are doing.
CrossFit NMC was established in 2016 and are the first not for profit CrossFit Box within the Royal Marines. They are holding a 24 hour charity event to raise money for The Royal Marines Charity and cancer support charities that supported a Royal Navy Corporal and his family throughout their battle with cancer and to raise awareness of the affects cancer has on families & friends. We will be supporting and attending this fantastic event.
Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the largest British charities and provides specialist health care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer. This year Battle Cancer will be raising money for Macmillan by donating 100% of the money raised at their functional fitness competition on the 5th August 2017. We will have a team competing in the event as well as running a stand. We have pledged to donate 10% of all sales on the day to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Help for Heroes is a British charity that helps provide better facilities for British servicemen and women who have been wounded or injured in the line of duty. We support this charity by donating £1 for every pair of Hero WODSOX sold on our site. This donation is also matched by WODSOX themselves, which means a total of £2 goes to the charity for every pair sold.
The foundation of functional fitness training is to prepare trainees not only for the unknown but for the unknowable. The result is a hugely varied training program that has been largely adopted by the Military to prepare personnel for the unknowable. The Military connection in functional fitness training can be seen every day with the concept of Hero WODs, which are intended to be performed with intense effort, in honour of fallen Heroes. We offer a site wide 10% discount for all current and ex serving members of the Military. Complete Military Verification
