CrossFit Hendersonville is all about physical fitness, but for many of its members it’s also about making a difference in their community and the world. In January of this year owner Lindsey McDuffie and a group of there members made a commitment to help Hope Springs International ship our recently purchased well drilling rig to Chad, Central Africa. At that time we estimated the cost would be $10,000. Lindsey said, “We can do that”! On Saturday May 19th. Lindsey presented Hope Springs International with their first installment of $6,000. From July through September events will be held to raise the balance needed to reach their goal. As you can see the “can do” spirit that permeates this group applies to more than just physical fitness.
Since 2009 Hope Springs’ projects have rehabbed 26 out-of-service wells, and drilled 35 new wells bringing clean water to an estimated 91,000 people. Shipping this new rig to Chad will enable us to drill many more wells in target villages throughout southern Chad. Each time we add a new well another 1500 people on average receive safe drinking water. We deeply appreciate the efforts of Lindsey McDuffie and CrossFit Hendersonville, and their decision to bring lasting change to a small part of our world.
