Event Details

Join us at Outpost CrossFit to raise awareness and support for Sexual Abuse Survivors.  The proceeds received will go to The Lake County Children's Advocacy Center and Zacharias Sexual Abuse Center

On Sunday Aug 31st, you can participate in two different physical events: a 5K Run/Walk or a CrossFit workout.  A donation of $15 is asked in order to participate. 

Check in begins at 9:15. The 5K begins at 10:00am.  The CrossFit workout will be available to participants throughout the entire event. 

Why participate you ask? Outpost CrossFit Owners Ismael and Sophia Rosa believe Sexual Abuse is an under-represented cause that is difficult to discuss and deserves support. If you yourself are not a survivor, it's highly likely that you know a survivor.  Outpost CrossFit has chosen to support the Lake County Children's Advocacy Center and Zacharias' Center in order to address three major steps in the process: disclosure, prosecution, and healing. 

The staff of the Lake County Children's Advocacy Center work diligently to provide the following services to child victims, their non-offending family members and the community at large:

  • Investigations of child sexual abuse and severe physical abuse allegations
  • Court advocacy and crisis intervention
  • Referrals to area agencies and/or private therapists for on-going counseling needs (Such as Zacharias Sexual Abuse Center)
  • Assistance to local police departments
  • Coordinate specialized medical examinations
  • A Speaker's Bureau, offering presentations and trainings to interested agencies, civic groups, ect.

Current research regarding child sexual abuse reveals the following:

  • 1 in every 3 girls and 1 in every 5 boys will become a victim of a sexual assault before age 18
  • More than 3 children die each day in the U.S as the result of abuse or neglect
  • An estimated 80% of all instances of child sexual abuse remain unreported
  • 90% of abused children are abused by someone they know and trust
  • Child abuse occurs among all racial and socioeconomic backgrounds
  • Children are often threatened or intimidated into keeping abuse a secret
  • Months or years pass before a child discloses that they have been abused

If you cannot attend the event, please donate.  Any help you can provide can make a difference.
