Share the Pain Changes Lives!
Share the Pain is a unique fitness-based charity event created by the members of CrossFit Lewes in Lewes, Delaware.
What started out as a fun, informal way for our members to introduce their passion for CrossFit to their friends and family members has grown into an annual fundraising event that benefits survivors of domestic violence in Sussex and Kent counties in Delaware.
Donations made via Share the Pain benefit The SAFE Program of People's Place. The SAFE Program provides shelter, safety planning and community support to survivors of domestic violence in our area.
In 2015, more than $49,000
was raised with Share the Pain 3. To date, nearly $85,000
has been raised by CrossFit Lewes members and sponsors of Share the Pain to benefit SAFE!
Funds raised through Share the Pain are vital in providing direct financial assistance to many survivors, including:
- 1st month's rent and deposits
- Furniture and mattresses
- Prescriptions and medical expenses
- Childcare expenses
- Gas cards, bus tickets, car insurance and repairs
Plus much much more.
For Share the Pain 4 - CrossFit Dover and CrossFit 1806 are joining the fun!
CrossFit is known for the strong community bonds formed by its members. For Share the Pain 4, CrossFit Lewes has enlisted the help of CrossFit Dover and CrossFit 1806, two of the area's premier CrossFit affilaites located in Kent County.
Together, we have set the goal to raise more than $50,000
for The SAFE Program, so they can continue to provide this vital assistance to individuals - mostly women and children - who have nowhere else to turn.
Please consider making a donation to one of our participants today and help share some of the pain of domestic abuse. Your support will help domestic violence survivors restart a new life free of fear and abuse.
