"Beat the Streets" Fundraiser
"Steve’s Club and its Participating Members provide a national network of programs through which at-risk or underserved youth of any socioeconomic background can join in the CrossFit Community at a reduced, low or no cost structure."
Join us on May 15th, as CrossFit
Affiliates and individuals across the country compete in a "Beat The Streets" Fundraiser WOD
to support the Steve's Club National Program, a 501(c)(3) non-profit
organization for at-risk youth fitness.
If you're an Affiliate, you can host your own "Beat the Streets" Fundraiser at your box on/around May 15th. Similar to the "Fight Gone Bad" CrossFit fundraiser, individuals and Affiliates will register and raise money online prior to the competition. Teams of 4 will compete against other teams across the country. For every $1k raised, Affiliates can sponsor an at-risk athlete for an entire year. All donations go directly to the gyms that will train specific kids and teens in tough neighborhoods to get them off the streets and into CrossFit.

Team WOD competition - 4 athletes constitute a team (must have at least 1 female athlete).
AMRAP 15 min:
· Station 1: Burpees
· Station 2: KB Swings
· Station 3: Pullups (chest to bar)
· Run 200m
All athletes begin at the same time and switch when the runner returns. When the runner comes back in, he/she goes to Station 1 (Burpees) and everyone goes to the next station (Burpees goes to KB Swings, KB Swings go to Pullups, Pullups go to the run).
Scoring: Count total # of reps (sum of Burpees, KB Swings, and Pullups), team with the highest # wins.
Scaling: For KB swings, there will be a men's weight (1.5 pood/24kg/53lbs) and a women's weight (1 pood/16kg/36lbs). KB swings can be done with dumbbells if necessary. Scaling for youth teams should be determined by the local hosts.
Standards: KB swing - bottom of the KB must face the ceiling, judges should be able to see the athlete's ears. Burpees - athlete must touch their chest to the floor on each rep, how they get down/up is up to them (no pushup is required), and must clap overhead at the top as they jump (should be able to see their ears). Pullup (chest to bar) - athlete can do whatever type of pullup they like, as long as their chest (just below clavicle).
Transitions: Athletes can only switch stations once they get a high-five from their teammate (prevents athletes from leaving early). During the high-five, the athlete that has just finished at that station will give the arriving athlete the "count" of what they are up to. For example, Athlete A is on burpees, and when Athlete D comes in from the run, Athlete A has done 20 burpees and tells Athlete D "20" and Athlete D begins counting with 21 (this is easier than trying to add it all up at the end).
Date: The suggested date for Beat the Streets is Sat May 15th, but if that date doesn't work, you are welcome to do the workout any day before May 31st.
Locations: Affiliates will be hosting local Beat the Streets WODs across the country, in addition to the flagship BTS WOD in Camden, NJ.
Team Details: Teams must have at least 1 female athlete. Affiliates can enter as many teams as they want, but we ask that the Affiliate as a whole raises $1k (total) to Sponsor an Athlete. Non-affiliated teams and cross-affiliate teams are allowed and encouraged, but are asked to shoot for the $1k target. If a team or Affiliate raise less than $1k, they can still compete and donate whatever possible to Steve's Club.
Teams can have kids/teens as athletes on their team (it's up to the host or team to scale the weights appropriately for that athlete). Youth teams (18yrs and younger) are encouraged, with no fundraising requirement to compete.
Donations: To compete in Beat the Streets, teams are asked to raise $1k to go towards Steve's Club National Program (all proceeds go to help promote at-risk youth fitness). The funding will go to the Affiliate that is training the at-risk youth athlete. Donations should be collected by the Affiliate first, and then submitted to Steve's Club (by check, or Google Checkout). Donations should be received prior to competition, but can be accepted until May 31st if necessary.
Athlete Sponsorship: As a donor, you can write in your top 3 choices of at-risk athletes to sponsor from our at-risk athlete profiles, and Steve's Club National Program will do their best to match you to one of those 3 athletes.
Prizes: Prizes awarded by SCNP based on all competitors, nation-wide. (local hosts will send results to SCNP at the end of the competition to determine the nation-wide winners).
1st place - 3 months supply of PaleoKits = $450 Value (Package of 25 Large PaleoKits sent each month)
2nd place - 2 month supply of PaleoKits = $300 Value (Package of 25 Large PaleoKits sent each month)
3rd place - 1 month supply of PaleoKits = $150 Value (Package of 25 Large PaleoKits)
