What is CFG On 3 Project?
CFG On 3 Project is a non-profit organization that provides scholarships for outstanding high school student-athletes in Jefferson County and the surrounding areas. These athletes have demonstrated excellence in academics and shown leadership in their athletics, their school, and their communities.
Why we started CFG On 3 Project?
When we launched CrossFit Gardendale, we knew we wanted to give back to our local community. With that in mind, CFG On 3 Project was born to make a direct impact on the youth of our community, the leaders of tomorrow. Being an outstanding athlete or student alone is impressive, but doing both is a feat only the most dedicated, determined students have achieved. CFG On 3 Project was created to help these students continue their education after high school and continue making a positive impact on their communities.
With your help, we can make a significant impact on the student-athletes in our community and help make a brighter future right here in our own backyard. Being part of this community has given us many wonderful opportunities. Now, we are asking for you to join us in increasing the accessibility to higher education and continuing to foster wonderful leaders within our local area.
1. Donate: Your contribution to CFG On 3 Project goes directly towards scholarships for local high school seniors this Spring. The more people that get involved, the more students we can impact this year. The best way to take action in making higher education more accessible for students in our community is by making the commitment and giving back – every dollar counts.
2. Tell Your Friends: In addition to making your own contributions, using your voice can go a long way. Share this article on Facebook, call up a few friends, or talk about it in your local community groups. The more people we get involved in working towards our mission of helping the youth of our community, the greater impact we will be able to make!
3. Encourage a Young Athlete: Many student-athletes in our community would not be where they are today without the support of their friends, family, coaches, teammates, and community members. Take some time today to encourage a young athlete in your life!
Make a connection to your local community, help a young athlete continue their education, and be active about making a difference in your area — CFG On 3 Project is our way of saying, “thanks” to the community and we hope you will join us in giving back this year!
