A message from Karen
It was wonderful to meet Lionhearts Fitness when I came into town for an OCR race to benefit them. As an Adaptive Athlete and an OCR racer it was with great pleasure to hear about an event set up for children and adaptive athletes to get into the sport and to get active.
When a personally meet Shell and the children of Lionhearts fitness that had me at hello. Their mission and vision simply align with mine. The children captured my heart immediately. It was with the greatest pleasure that I try to get up to their area as often as possible. I am available to them to mentor and OCR train with the children, build new obstacles for the facility or support them as they won non-profit of the year. The positive energy from this group is so beautifully infectious, I try to visit as often as possible.
Lionhearts is a non profit FREE Fitness program for all youth of all adaptiveabilities.
Mission: To empower our youth to face fears and conquer obstacles, knowing their worth, building self-worth as well as becoming stronger physically. Obstacle Racing, particularly in team racing, develops community, unity, strength and empowerment by helping others. No one is left out, left behind. If one person can’t do an obstacle, their teammate will help, or even do it for them. Everyone has their favorite strength and obstacle, together we face them and are victorious.
