It‘s all about the Kids -

The RCFN Fundraiser IronMan Triathlon 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 28th of April, RCFN will begin the next charity fundraiser and we need your help!


1 - The Task

Christian Eisen, Jarek Krawczak and Drake Sladky, will each attempt to complete the "C2  Iron Man", which is a total of 50km Skiing, 100km Rowing and 200km Biking with a time cap of 24-hours. The whole effort will be done on Stationary C2 Ergs @ Reebok Crossfit Nürnberg on the 28th of April, starting at 1 am.

The RCFN Charity "insane but True"  WOD is:

100 Rounds of

500m Ski Erg

1000m Row Erg

2000m Bike Erg

with a Time Cap of 24 Hours


2 - Pick your athlete(s)!

Drake

Drake is one of the owners of RCFN and a FlowMaster of Crossfit HeadQuarters. Together with his wife Ginger they have two kids. Crossfit Kids has been big part of the RCFN family from the Start so when the idea of Supporting the Kinderhospitz Team came up, he was all in. Because of his IronMan back ground and his friend and owner of Rogue Europe, Juha Puonti, he came up with this crazy idea. Obviously he was the first to accept the challenge so you can be sure he will be the last to get of these machines!

Christian

Christian is in for many reasons. First of all he just did not really listen in the first place and said yes before he realized what he got himself into. Rumors also have it, he is in just to beat Drake in this one. And he is not very convincing in denying it. But two things are sure: once he is in, he is in with all he got and of course helping is the main motivation. He is a father of three and the thought of his kids and how lucky he is, will for sure keep him going.

Jarek

Jarek, also a father himself, is the guy you definitely want on the Rower next to you. No matter how crazy it is, no matter how stupid it might seem he will not let you down. Jarek is part of the RCFN Family from the start and he always was here when needed. And for sure he is here when the kids need him. 24h hours on the rower, the bike and the ski erg is just insane and you can not beat it by being the best athlete but by being the most consistent and maybe the most crazy one. You need to be like Jarek.


3 - How can you help?

If you would like to donate, we are asking you to pick a person (or more) you would like to sponsor with a certain amount per kilometer finished. For example, if you decide to donate €1/KM for one athlete and that athlete would complete the challenge it would mean as much as €350 for the kids at the Hospice.  Of course less or more is ALWAYS welcome, any amount per km will help. And please don't forget that finishing is far from certain.
Please message us personally at rcfn4kids@crossfitreeboknuernberg.com with theathlete(s) you want to sponsor, the amount per km and whether it is ok to mention your name on this site. We would update the standings here and on the FB pages of the three athletes.

Of course you can donate directly @ rcfn4kids@crossfitreeboknuernberg.comvia PayPal.

Periodically throughout the day there will be live streaming via FB Live if you follow Drake Sladky and everyone is welcome to stop by to cheer for the athletes, have a beer and give money in person.

Thanks and wish us luck!
