One Ohio Valley business is hoping to make a big difference for local dogs in need this weekend.
Members of OV Crossfit are teaming up with the Belmont County Animal Rescue League on Saturday to hold a free community workout of the day for dogs.
While the workout is designed with a certain symbolic nature, they will have multiple scaled and modified versions available for people of all ability levels.
OV Crossfit Coach Paul Krieger has agreed to match each dollar donated with one “Burpee.”
A “Burpee” is a full body exercise that consists of dropping into a squat position with your hands on the ground, kicking your feet back into a plank position, while keeping your arms extended, returning to your feet into the squat position and jumping up from the squat position.
“CrossFit has always been very community driven and that is why at OV CrossFit we always try to do as much as possible to support both our members and the local community,” said Krieger.
They hope to further the mission to rescue, rehabilitate and connect more animals to loving homes with the money raised.
Belmont County Animal Rescue League’s largest program currently is the “Nellie Carpenter Spay and Neuter Assistance Program” which in the past 18 Months has subsidized more than $36,000 towards spay and neuter surgeries for low income Belmont County families.
