180901 ~ Saved By The Barbell

Saved by the Barbell is an annual, world-wide CrossFit community Labor Day workout and fundraising effort to bring CrossFit to more kids everywhere.

Each year, rates of chronic diseases like type-2 diabetes, obesity, and liver disease – conditions once associated with the sick and elderly – rise among children, from toddlers to teenagers.

And yet each year, more schools reduce their physical education programs. Recess is becoming a thing of the past. Cafeteria food, deeply flawed nutrition education, and sugar-stocked vending machines only contribute to the problem. And schools where children grow up in poverty, food deserts, and disadvantaged communities pose even greater challenges to kids’ health.

As adults, we ask ourselves: What can I do today to make a meaningful and lasting difference in the world, in my community, in my neighborhood, on my block, for the better?

Our community knows the answer. Kids need to move. To play. To stand up from their desks and couches and go outside, go to the gym, learn how to move and nourish their bodies in a safe and healthy community. 

Today you are asked to bring a child!  Let's show them that fitness can be fun, and help start them on the path to wellness!!

I think that everything posted made a great deal of sense. But, think on this, suppose
you added a little information? I am not suggesting your information isn't
solid, however what if you added a title that makes people desire more?
I mean 180901 ~ Saved By The Barbell | CrossFit Canuck is
kinda boring. You could peek at Yahoo's home page and see how
they create post headlines to get viewers interested.
You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get people interested about everything've got to say.

Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.
