151. T&T Open Mic: People of All Colors Succeed (POAC)

“We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.”

– Maya Angelou

I am so excited about this conversation because it came to be over fitness! I am once again competing in the 2022 Do More Charity Challenge, a charitable CrossFit event where teams compete on behalf of selected charities to win/raise funds for their charity- the purse is over $130K!! I am competing on one of the two Community Banks of Colorado Teams and our team will be competing for People of All Colors Succeed (POAC). POAC Succeed is working to close the gap between injustice and equality for all people to spark courageous conversations for change. SO, you know I was super excited to welcome the POAC Succeed team to the T&T mic to share their why, their journey, and what they are hoping to do in the future. This is an awesome conversation about athletes seeking purpose and putting all that energy back into their local communities. The POAC Succeed curriculum is unique and so needed in so many ways- life skills though sports, community, connection, and opportunity. If you are out there looking to make a change and help facilitate conversation and education about diversity and inclusion- this is the convo for you! AND you can come cheer on my team September 10th, 2022 at CrossFit Loop (Castle Rock, Colorado). Hope to see you there!

Diversity and inclusion. Equality. Courageous conversations. Getting uncomfortable. Life skills through sports. Community and opportunity. To give is to receive. Seeking purpose and fulfillment. Personal journeys inspiring the professional ones. Resilience and faith and responsibility.
