Challenge 33 Recap: Thanks for your Participation in our Challenge for a Cause Initiative
Oct 21 2021 | Kimberly Bowman, MS, CNP
Congratulations C33 Challenge Participants!
Before getting started with Challenge 34 next week, F45 HQ would like to congratulate the C33 members who participated in the Challenge for a cause initiative.
What was new about this Challenge?
We introduced the ‘teams’ concept for the first time in Challenge 33, with F45 Team Captains Cory and Cristina, each representing a different charitable foundation. F45 HQ made donations up to a total value of USD 25,000 per charity based on the number of F45 studio check-in completed by a registered member.
The F45 HQ charity partners and team captains for C33 were:
Cory George represented Gotcha4Life; an Australian-based, non-profit charity delivering community-based mental fitness programs that create meaningful mateship, build emotional muscle, and strengthen social connection in local communities.
Cristina Chan represented the Cheatcode Foundation; a US-based, non-profit organization focused on increasing access to transformational mental health services to the most at-risk and underserved communities, and ending the stigma around seeking mental health support.
What was the final C33 donation amount to each charity?
Thanks to YOUR Challenge participation and F45 studio-check ins on the Challenge app during C33, F45 HQ was able to make the following charitable donations to each organization:
F45 HQ donated:
- 25 000 USD to the Cheatcode Foundation
- 23,748 USD to the Gotcha4Life Foundation

No more loved ones lost to breast cancer.
