Making a difference in 2016!

MalawiAug2014

We’re happy to announce that following 6 years of awesome 24-hour charity workout events to support F2F and the impoverished communities in Malawi, we’ve committed to our 7th year and to bring the project to other gyms and communities!

Already committed to host events areReebok CrossFit Zurich (September 3rd), BeastModeBärn (September 10th), CrossFit Meilen & Horgen (September 17th), CrossFit TB in TomsBox (October 1st), CrossFit Zug/Luzern (October 15th). In addition, Chris Hawkes has returned with another epic challenge on the heels of last year’s 24-hour walk and hosted a 300KM bike ride in Switzerland on May 28th.

Thanks again to everyone who hosted, sponsored, worked out in or otherwise supported the events in prior years. We’ve made a difference in Malawi and continue to help communities in need help themselves in a sustainable manner.


Hillseeker Fitness, Reebok CrossFit Zurich & BeastMode Bern have worked closely with the Face to Face AIDS Project (F2F) since 2009 and have visited the community we’re supporting, in Kang’oma, Malawi. We experienced firsthand where the donated funds go, how they are used to drive sustainable change and how they are making a difference in people’s lives.

As the project continues to succeed and make a greater impact in Malawi, we’re enthusiastic about stepping up our support while also encouraging athletes to stretch their limits by participating in a 24-hour CrossFit challenge.

Making a difference in 2015!

MalawiAug2014

We’re happy to announce that following 4 years of awesome 24-hour charity workout events to support F2F and the Kang’oma Community in Malawi, we’ve committed to our 5th year and to bring the project to other gyms and communities!

Already committed to host events are BeastModeBärn (May 23rd) & Hillseeker (June 7th) & CrossFit Horgen / CrossFit Meilen (September 12th). We also had a great time hosting our first ever 24-hour walk on March 14th in Zurich. We hope to announce dates for others as well and we’re looking forward to our first gyms outside of Switzerland as well this year! Thanks again to everyone who hosted, sponsored, worked out in or otherwise supported the events in 2014, including everyone at CrossFit TB (see video below), Reebok CrossFit Zurich, BeastModeBärn, CrossFit Horgen and Hillseeker CrossFit! We raised over $55K in 2014 — which is enough to make a huge impact in Malawi!

And that’s a wrap for this year’s awesome 24in24 Charity Workout Series!

On November 9th Reebok CrossFit Zurich finished Hour 24 of their 24in24, marking the end of an amazing series of 24-hour charity workouts this year! Well done, guys!

We extend our sincere thanks to everyone who supported the villages in Malawi, Face-to-Face’s efforts to improve lives and create sustainable communities and the athletes at each event. We’re also grateful for the volunteers, event hosts and every athlete who do from 1 to all 24-hour workouts. We raised almost $50K in 2014 — which is enough to make a huge impact in Malawi!

We’re already setting dates for 2015, so if you’re interested in hosting a 24in24 at your gym in 2015, please let us know and we’ll give you lots of help!

Here’s a tribute to each event host!
