CrossFit Sun’s charity group “Fun and Easy Giving” organizes the Rowing Warrior Challenge as a fundraiser for Nā Koa Kai Canoe Club the host of the San Diego Shaka Fest.  Nā Koa Kai Canoe Club is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity organization.  Nā Koa Kai Canoe Club is an all adult volunteer run youth only Hawaiian cultural immersion program centered around the Hawaiian canoe and emphasizes a lifestyle of health wellness.

In April of 2014, CrossFit Sun and their charity group “Fun and Easy Giving” helped raise money at the San Diego Shaka Fest by hosting the first annual Rowing Warrior Challenge so this youth program could purchase a trailer to transport both of the their canoes and equipment to and from their practice site.

The Challenge

“The 2015 Goal is to raise $ 8,000.00 to purchase another Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe for the kids.  The kids are the future and one look at this program and the future looks bright.  Not only do these kids learn to live a lifestyle of fitness but they also learn teamwork, leadership, responsibility, respect, philanthropy, great values, and a strong work ethic.   They are tomorrow’s leaders so please join CrossFit Sun’s Fun and Easy Giving group in investing in their future and ours.
