December 14, 2020 — Jacksonville, FL — CrossFit Salt de Terre, a female owned and operated CrossFit gym located just outside Riverside, in the up and coming Railyard District, will be hosting its first annual “Fight to Flourish” competition on January 16, 2021.

Proceeds from “Fight to Flourish” will benefit the Youth Crisis Center of Jacksonville, FL, in an effort to upgrade the facility’s recreation center. The mission of the Youth Crisis Center is to build a healthier community by empowering young people and families to rise above adversity. CrossFit Salt de Terre aims to give back to the Jacksonville community inside and outside the gym. Members are invited to participate in quarterly give back events for a variety of causes.
Maintaining one’s mental health during this pandemic has been difficult for all ages and suicide rates among adults and teens have gone up during this time. The community at CrossFit Salt de Terre believes in continuing the conversation surrounding this topic in the hopes of saving lives, especially the lives of our youth.
“The team at CrossFit Salt de Terre prides itself in its involvement within the Jacksonville community. We are passionate about health and wellness, physically and mentally, as the two are interchangeable. Our hope is that this event will rally both the CrossFit community, as well as the Jacksonville community to honor those whose lives have been affected by teen suicide, while providing a healthy outlet to engage the public,” said Amy Saltmarsh, owner and head coach of CrossFit Salt de Terre.
All “Fight to Flourish” workouts will be partner style and appropriate for adults and teens of all ages and abilities. Teams can compete in an Adult Only or an Adult + Teen division. Participants will compete in a series of five workouts over the course of the day, and top performers will earn a spot on the podium!
Tickets are $40 per team which includes participation in the competition and a t-shirt.
Sponsorship opportunities are available and appreciated.
