Crossfit With a Purpose

The notion of providing ‘CrossFit with a purpose’ was formed through charitable efforts of Brad and Meredith Stadler.

Personal Story. Universal Message.

Though the idea of Crossfit DT1 was borne out of our family's experience with Type 1, the foundation of Crossfit DT1 is built on the idea that transformation can only come out of challenge.

Our son Luke was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 7.  

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease.  It is NOT caused by eating sugar, obesity or other poor lifestyle habits.  There is NO CURE and a person needs many injections of insulin daily to live. This requires constant management and attention to ensure dosage is correctly calculated based on activity and food intake. If not done correctly, insulin therapy can be deadly. Families with loved ones that are Type 1 carry this stress and anxiety everyday.

Although Type 1 is very difficult, we are incredibly lucky. Luke was diagnosed early before experiencing severe complications. Not treating Type 1 diabetes is fatal. We are also extremely grateful that we have good healthcare and the means handle the economic burden of managing the disease. The American Diabetes Association estimates that annual healthcare costs for diabetics are $7900 more than non-diabetics. Many do not detect the disease in a timely manner and cannot afford the cost of managing the disease properly.

CrossFit DT1 donates 10% of gross revenue directly to DT1 Charities, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. The founders of DT1 charities pay all operational and fundraising expenses therefore 100% of every dollar raised goes directly to dedicated to fund Type 1 diabetes research, awareness programs and direct contributions to families struggling to cover their medical costs.

We would like to sincerely thank all of our members, coaches and co-owners for helping us support our cause.

CrossFit in the Community

10% of gross revenue and 50% of profit will continue to go directly to fight type 1 Diabetes. DT1 Charities is a 501 (c) 3 non profit organization started by the owners of CFDT1. DT1 Charities was started to raise additional money outside proceeds from the gym and allow us to direct the money in different ways. For example, we are starting a program to provide direct support to families without the economic means to manage the disease properly. All operating expenses of DT1 charities our paid for by it's founders and every dollar raised goes directly to research, awareness or families in need.
We will continue to have fund raisers at the gym to support causes that are important to our members as well!! Just let us know what causes our important to you!!
