Event description

Description

Every 10 seconds a child abuse report is placed. Many young children who enter the foster care system are further traumatized as they are placed in a home different than their brother or sister. In 2015, over 670,000 children spent time in U.S. foster care.

The turnover rate of foster parents ranges from 30% to 50%. Thus, 30% to 50% of foster parents make the decision to no longer be a foster parent home for children in need. As a result, with the increase in children in foster care paired with the decrease in number of foster parents, the end result is simply that there are not enough homes for children in need to be placed in, or a child is moved from one home to another, and so on and so forth.

BUT WE CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS.

One of the members at our box has committed to seeing this injustice end. And we believe that if we don't foster, we can give our guts to helping those who do.

On December 2, we will be hosting a partner competition to raise maximum amount of support for Steve and his family, so that they can continue investing in foster children.

It will be held in Hawaii, but we will also be having an option available for those over seas. This will be a GLOBAL competition. Overseas participants will be recording one of the 3 events of the competition, and submitting it via e-mail for a chance to win a sweet $100 lululemon gift card per team. The event will use minimal equipment, so if you can't make it to your box, you should be able to do it at home or a local park.

There will be a team winner of that one specific event from Hawaii and from the video submission.

The details for the work out will be released the day before the work out. So, check your e-mail then.

FOR THOSE COMPETING IN HAWAII.

Check in starts at 8 am. There will be volunteers directing you on where to park and check in.

POTLUCK lunch to follow. Bring something yummy to share.

FOR THOSE COMPETING OVER SEAS.

The work out must be completed on December 2. No sooner. No later. In your video, show us the date on your iPhone for your entry to count. When you've completed the work out, send your video to respectthecorners@gmail.com by Sunday, December 3. Winner will be announced the following Friday via instagram @respectthecorners.


The need for foster care WILL end. And we want to be a part of it.
