On Saturday, May 14th, the athletes of Crossfit on the Hill gave several hours of their morning to make blankets for adoptable animals at the MSPCA Boston Animal Care and Adoption Center. Cutting fabric & tying knots was more tedious than we may have anticipated, but with a little teamwork, we were able to successfully complete seven (7) unique blankets for the adoptable animals at the MSPCA.
A donation bin was placed inside COTH and in the weeks leading up to the event, athletes and friends brought in countless items needed at the MSPCA. By May 14th, the bin was overflowing with donations. From a variety of treats & toys, cleaning supplies, towels, food, blankets, gift cards, and more, we had to use the help of 5 athletes and 2 cars to transport the donations over to the MSPCA!
At the MSPCA, we were able to personally give a blanket to one of the cutest little pups, Butters, who is in the process of healing from some severe burns on his back. While we are sure he will have no problem finding a forever home, we know he has a comfy blanket to nap on while he heals and waits!
We cannot thank everyone who donated and participated enough! You can find a collection of pictures on the Crossfit on the Hill Facebook page, or by simply clicking this link here: https://www.facebook.com/crossfitonthehill/photos.
While we enjoy working together and challenging each other on a daily basis to make health & fitness as much fun as possible, we look forward to doing more community based activities in the future. If you have any suggestions or would like to help/be involved in organizing our next event, let your coaches know!
