Silver Wolf Crossfit
2128 Remount Rd., Charlotte, NC 28208
You’re invited to come #sweatforacause with OUTWOD!
OUTWOD is not your typical workout fundraiser – we’re totally extra!
OUTWODs are 100% inclusive, not only of gender, sexuality and of favorite member of Destiny’s Child…but also of fitness level.
Never done CrossFit? No problem!
A Games-level athlete? Oh we’ve got something in store for you too!
Here’s how it works!
1. First – visit the ticket link — https://iamout.org/events/charlotte/ — to register yourself.
2. You’ll get an email confirming your registration AND giving you a little step-by-step on sharing the event fundraising page.
Do you have to fundraise? No. Does it make you cooler, likeable, more awesome? Pshhh Duh!
Every OUTWOD has a goal of raising the most funds as possible for The OUT Foundation. You can read more about our work here https://www.iamout.org/
3. Now that you’re all registered and fundraising has begun, head on over to the OUTWOD shop and get you some gear…we recommend grabbing some more Pride gear wherever you can find it. Not that it’s beauty contest…but it’s definitely a “who wore it best” contest. More rainbows. More reps.
And yeah – that’s basically it! We’re super excited to have you at this awesome fundraising and sweat-inducing event.
