Integrated Recovery is looking for 1,000 CrossFit boxes to raise $1,000 dollars to save lives by funding the treatment to heal women suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) and Military Sexual Trauma (MST).
Operation 22 MSTOn Saturday, June 9th we will be hosting a charity event in support of Integrated Recovery Foundation's Operation 22 MST, founded by Reformer Dr. Ron Gellis.MST stands for Military Sexual Trauma, and sadly, is more common than you may think.1 in 4 women in the military experience MST, with most assaulted more than once. Many do not report their assault because of fear of retaliation. When left untreated MST has a high correlation with PTSD, substance abuse, and suicide. Women ages 18-29 are 12 times more likely to attempt suicide than non-veteran women are.
Eliminating veteran suicides is Integrated Recovery Foundation’s mission, through free, integrated treatment. This will be accomplished via a 25-acre treatment facility where each woman receives an assessment to formulate her treatment plan. Treatment for MST and PTSD will focus on Physical, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual healing domains.
In support of Operation 22 MST, we will be performing a female Hero WOD in our regular class schedule on Saturday, June 9th. Representatives from the foundation will be on site to collect donations for anyone that would like to support.Spread the word to anyone that would like to come out. The workout will be for all levels, and there will be partner and modified versions for everyone participating. Class times are 7am, 8:15am, and 9:30am.
This campaign has ended.
