Who, in their right mind, would ask you to start a business for them that would compete against your own business? Well, that’s exactly what happened to CrossFit Franchise Owner and Coach Drew Rykert and the crazy thing is, he said yes!
“There’s no competition when it comes to the kids,” Rykert said. Of course, he’s talking about how Operation Underground Railroad rescues children from sex trafficking and enslavement.
O.U.R. is creating the FOR-profit CrossFit gym in Draper, Utah to help support the NON-profit O.U.R. administrative costs. That way more of each donation to O.U.R. can go directly to help fund missions and recovery care of victims. Many generous partners have assisted in supporting the gym as a means of consistent revenue: WODOmation, brUTE, WORKT, Bam Bams BBQ, HYLETE, Kill Cliff, and CrossFit.
O.U.R. Founder and CEO Tim Ballard along with various Jump Team members often worked out at Rykert’s CrossFit Gym, but will now have a gym of their own, and the beautiful part is anyone can come and join the gym, work out with and be trained beside our Jump Team members, and help enslaved children as well. It’s really a win/win/win situation. And don’t worry about Rykert. He’s actually managing the O.U.R. gym now as well as coaching and training others.
The Grand Opening of the O.U.R. CrossFit gym is September 11th and 12th but you can sign up right now at CROSSFITOUR.COM. You can even try it out free before signing up during the first eleven days of September.
