Recess Games

Recess Games for Hopekids


Friends and family of the Crossfit Templar community…..and anyone else who wants to have fun


A FUN team competition to raise awareness and raise money for HopeKids, a 501(c)(3) non-profit providing ongoing events, activities and supportive family communities for children with life-threatening medical conditions. (Think Make-A-Wish, only instead of one huge wish, they get to participate in events a few times a month.)


Saturday, June 18th from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.


Crossfit Templar


Josh Cinnamo is participating in an invite-only powerlifting meet called Relentless. The meet is in Rosemount on July 8th & 9th, which attracts some of the best lifters in the U.S. and raises funds for HopeKids. In fact, over $225,000 was raised at last year’s meet! Josh has been paired with a HopeKid who is battling/living with a rare form of brain cancer and will lift and fundraise on behalf of the young man. Because Templar has been such an integral part of Josh’s growth as a lifter, he’d love to share that same community support with HopeKids.


Soon there will be a communication for signing up on Wodify, just as you would any other class. This will NOT take away from paid visits or punch cards. Everyone who signs up will be divided into teams; we do the thinking for you so you don’t need to stress out about creating your own team. Again, fun is the key objective.
Additionally, there will be a link sent out to Josh’s donation page. The money will go directly to HopeKids on behalf of Josh and Crossfit Templar’s members. There is no minimum donation…there is no maximum donation, either (wink-wink).
Also, for those with questions about donations and how they are dispersed by the organization, HopeKids uses 90% of the funds donated on the children and their activities. You’d be hard-pressed to find an organization using charitable dollars so efficiently; the remaining 10% is used for administrative (4%) and fundraising (6%) expenses.

**If you have questions about the event, the donations, how to sign up, etc., please contact Josh/Kate Cinnamo or Gretchen.
