CrossFit Rio Rancho is hosting the Innagural McLaren Cup Suicide Awareness Throwdown on Saturday, April 13th, 2019 at the Rio Rancho High School Football Stadium.
The competition will be two-person same-sex teams raising money for the organization Breaking the Silence New Mexico. Breaking the Silence New Mexico is an organization raising community awareness about the myths and stereotypes that reinforce the silence about mental illness and suicide.
There are three levels for the competition – Fitness, Rx, and Rx+. To register your team, email your team name and participant information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Then post a video on social media of your team doing five burpees in a public place, then state your team name and say “We are participating in the McLaren Cup Suicide Awareness WOD at RRHS football stadium on April 13th.”
The cost is a minimum donation of $10 for competitors and $1 minimum donation for spectators at the door.
The throwdown honors McLaren Jonas, who tragically lost his life to suicide in 2017.
Food trucks, a car show, vendors, and a live t-shirt printing will be available during the event.
