It‘s all about the Kids - The RCFN C2 IronMan Triathlon Team Challenge
CrossFit is all about making people's lives better. We want to make this true not only about those who actually do CrossFit, but also about reaching and helping those who can't. This is why RCFN tries to collect money on a regular basis to support the Nürnberg Kinderhospitz Team (http://www.hospiz-team.de/) with their critical and life-changing mission to bring joy to the lives of some very sick kids in our area.
On the 27th of April 2019, RCFN hosted a 24-hour C2 Ironman Charity Fundraiser and is so grateful to All of the Generous Donors and Sponsors who supported the Event
We Rocked It!
Every Team accomplished their goal of at least 125 total rounds of Skiing, Rowing and Biking during 24-hours of Non-stop Pain, raising an astounding combined total of 8,875,00 Euro for Nuernberg Kinder Hospice.
Our Thankful Hands gift from the Kinder Hospice now hangs proudly on our Wall of Fame, but everyone knows it was Our Community that did All the Work. Great job, Everyone!!
Here's the Recap:
1 - The Task
Six Teams of Three from RCFN each completed the "24 Hour C2 Iron Man Challenge"! Each team completed as many rounds as possible in 24 hours of 500m Skiing, 1000m Rowing and 2000m Biking with the expectation of completeing 125 total rounds. The whole effort was done on Stationary C2 Ergs at RCFN on the 27th of April, starting at 0000.

3 - How The Teams got Donations
Individuals/Businesses wishing to donate had to pick a team (or more) they wanted to sponsor, and the amount they wished to donate per round finished. For example, when individuals pledged to donate €10/round for a team, if that team completed the challenge it would mean as much as €1250 for the kids at the Hospice. Everything pledged per round really added up! Amazing was that All Teams without exception Pulled through together and met their goals.
Streaming via Facebook Live made the event so exciting: we had a Box-full of Spectators and Tables overflowing with Homemade food for which the athletes (& spectators) were so appreciative.
Undying gratitude to the Rock & Roll Band GR80s who showed up to Motivate everyone at the 17th hour of Work, and to Iván for the amazing Coffee support (also on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/roestkaffee/)
