Rallying for Inclusion: CrossFit Angier to Host the 2023 Special Olympics WOD for Inclusion

On June 24th, 2023, CrossFit Angier is thrilled to be the hosting ground for the 6th annual Special Olympics Workout of the Day (WOD) for Inclusion. This remarkable event is a testament to the transformative power of community, and we are proud to announce that our facility will become a beacon of strength, inclusivity, and resilience on this day.

Championing Special Athletes

The Special Olympics stands as the world’s largest sports organization for children and adults with intellectual and physical disabilities. With its commitment to providing year-round training and activities, the Special Olympics currently engages more than 5 million participants and Unified Sports partners across 172 countries. This network of dedication and inclusion spans from local to national and regional competitions, totaling more than 100,000 events a year.

By hosting the WOD for Inclusion, we are honored to contribute to this cause and assist the 40,000 Special Olympics athletes of North Carolina. This aligns with our core belief that fitness is for everyone, and every individual, regardless of their abilities, should have the chance to experience the benefits and joys of physical activity.

CrossFit Angier & SONC: A Partnership of Strength and Purpose

In 2023, CrossFit Angier celebrates its 2nd year of partnership with Special Olympics North Carolina (SONC). Over the years, we have extended our support by providing training and facility access for the athletes of SONC, as well as participating in a variety of fundraising events, including the annual WOD for Inclusion.
