AN EVENT POWERED BY: CROSSFIT ILIUM
We're excited about this being our 6th year to host a WOD for Water event. This event has grown every year and we're planning for this to be our biggest yet. Our goal is to raise $100,000 that will help to bring clean and Living water to villages throughout India, Cambodia, Chad, Uganda and Nepal.
Come out and join us for a great WOD that will also have an impact towards changing lives around the world!
Our 5th anniversary of WOD for Water powered by Crossfit Ilium promised to be our best yet. We set an extremely lofty goal of $100,000. Thinking back to 2012 when we started WOD for Water in Troy, it was due to the fact we noticed Iron Tribe Fitness in Birmingham had raised $100,000. That day in 2012 has resulted in thousands of lives being changed forever because of clean water and the ability to advance the Gospel to the un-reached.
Back to this year, our event had the most competitors we’ve ever had with 35 teams coming from all over the state of Alabama. We had more individual donors than ever before and we also formed a new partnership with Alpha Gamma Delta, Kappa Delta and Phi Mu at Troy University. These three sororities donated more than $18,000 towards our event. We are extremely happy to say, in 2016 we raised more than $121,000 for NeverThirst!! This puts us well over $300,000 in our five years of hosting this event. Because of the generosity of the people in our community, we are able to provide 26 biosand filters to families in Sudan, Nepal and S. Sudan, 1 rain water tank in Cambodia, 17 hand pump wells in India, 7 in Cambodia, 2 in S. Sudan and 1 in Nepal. THANK YOU to all who participated, volunteered, gave or prayed for this event.
