A few months ago I was lucky enough to be involved with Shield – a free five week CrossFit programme run by CCW in association with The New Zealand Society on Alcohol & Drug Dependence (NSAD) for people in the community recovering from addictions. Now Brian and the team are at it again, this time raising money through The Winter Throwdown for Mana House, a recovery accommodation service I started with the NSAD last year.
About two months ago one of CCW’s members came to me with an idea. His belief in this idea was fuelled by his own journey through life and his passion for helping others who were struggling much the same as he had. His enthusiasm was infectious and this idea quickly turned from a casual conversation into a reality.
