Better community Health and Fitness is the focus at Crossfit Oak Creek. With this in mind we have been a key contributor and sponsor of many events and athletic teams within the Community. The following is an overview of the Community Events and Sponsorships we have been involved in. Visit our home page frequently for announcements and upcoming events.
Oak Creek Mayor’s Fitness Challenge – Facebook Page
Each year these challenge events in this community program look to introduce people in the Oak Creek area to new workout styles as well as getting motivated to lead a more fit lifestyle. Crossfit Oak Creek has hosted events that include our Crossfit and Body Smash programs as well as participation by our members and owners in other events hosted by the Mayor’s office.
Oak Creek Youth Football Conditioning Program – OCYF
Crossfit Oak Creek is a proud sponsor of OCYF and has been asked to run a pre-season conditioning program in late summer to prepare young athletes for the rigors of practice that the league has. Crossfit Oak Creek believes strongly in providing a solid fitness base for the youth of our community and will continue to support and sponsor this and other great organizations.
Sluggers Fundraiser – Franklin Sluggers Site
Crossfit Oak Creek is happy to help with a fundraiser for the Franklin Sluggers to raise money for equipment. There were workouts for the kids and parents alike.
Staying Strong 4 Shawn Fundraiser – Staying Strong 4 Shawn Site – Event Facebook Page
On December 14, 2013 Crossfit Oak Creek was proud to host a fundraiser to support the family of Shawn Weber, brother of trainer Billy Weber. Shawn battled heart issues all his life but lived by the motto “Never Give Up”. As a heart transplant recipient in early 2013, Shawn lost his battle with a lung infection on November 28, 2013. The fundraiser WOD challenged every participant to “Never Give Up”, and brought an already close community even closer together. Several local Crossfit Boxes also participated in the workout to honor Shawn that day and we are grateful for their support.
Peanut Butter Drive – Hunger Task Force Signature Programs
Crossfit Oak Creek supports the Hunger Task Force of Milwaukee by participating in a fall Peanut Butter Drive, a Signature Program to provide a nutritious food source to those in need as the winter months approach. One of our members, Sandy Ahlensdorf, has promoted this drive to celebrate her birthday and our members continue to donate generously. Crossfit Oak Creek proudly supports this worthy cause to ensure all in our community have the nutritious food sources they need.
Milwaukee Bucks – Barbells With Bucks – On November 30th 2013, Crossfit Oak Creek, along with other Crossfit Boxes around the Milwaukee area were invited to do a demonstration workout during halftime of their game against the Boston Celtics. Crossfit Oak Creek was honored to have this opportunity to demonstrate a Crossfit workout to the community. The workout routine that was used by all the groups was developed Maggie and Corey.
Real Milwaukee TV Show – Crossfit Oak Creek was featured on this local TV show. The purpose was to show how Crossfit is a program anyone can do and how it can be scaled to everyone’s ability to ensure safety for all.
