Alex and Aldo

CrossFit 717 will be hosting Alex for Autism today, a fundraiser for the Autism Society of Great Harrisburg. We will run multiple heats of the WOD “Alex” through the day. We will have a regular division, a family¬†division¬†for kids 8-15 y/o that are familiar with the movements, all leading up to the final Rx+ division. Rx+ division will be limited to 10 men and 10 women. There will be kids games, face painting, and a CrossFit inspired kid’s obstacle course. We will be selling tickets for food and games throughout the day with the proceeds going to the ASGH. Christian’s Fitness Factory is donating a CrossFit starter package to be raffled off.

Parking: Please park in our back lot starting at the fence. DO NOT PARK IN THE LOT ABOVE US OR AT THE WEST SHORE PLAZA. You can park on Market St, State St, 8th St or at the West Shore Farmer’s Market. We will be coning off area next to the building so those spaces will not be available.

We will close check-in/registration at 1pm. Pre-registered participants (except for Rx+ participants, you will be assigned your heat) will check-in, be assigned a heat as they arrive, and pick up their shirt at the check-in desk. Same day check-in will be done at the front desk. We will allow people to use bands for the regular heats, but athletes have to jump or step up on to the 24″ box for men and 20″ box for ladies for the box jumps. We are planning on 12 people/heat. Beginners or anyone needing more scaling will go into the Scaled/Family Heat. Kids familiar with the movements and anyone that wants to do the wod with their kids will be in the Family/Scaled heat.

During the day, tickets will be sold at $1/ticket, 12 for $10, 25 for $20 for both activities and the raffle. Activity tickets will be face painting (3 tickets), kids games(1 ticket/game) , chair massage (1 ticket/min), puzzle piece coloring (1 ticket) and food (varies 1-2 tickets/item). The raffle prizes will be a CrossFit Starter set from Christian’s Fitness Factory and a Autism inspired bracelet from Stella & Dot. There will be a CrossFit inspired obstacle course that the younger kiddos can go through as often as they like. We will have an ice cream truck as well. We will have reps from the Autism Society, Stella & Dot, Brain Balance, & Perfectly Posh with information and products for sale. DJ Chris “Cashmere” Vroman will be spinning tunes all day.
