TYR has partnered with Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) to launch a limited edition shoe, the O.U.R. CXT-1 Trainer, with 100% of profits to be donated directly to the organization’s mission to fight global human trafficking and child exploitation.
“TYR is proud to join forces with O.U.R. for their crucial mission,” said TYR CEO, Matt DiLorenzo. “We are excited to donate 100% of the profit from our special O.U.R. CXT-1 Trainer and make an even greater impact on the quality of the lives of others. Our customers represent strength, and we look forward to seeing them wear this shoe to show their support for this pressing cause.”
The O.U.R. CXT-1 Trainer features a signature O.U.R. black and yellow colorway with “RISE UP” inscribed on the sole. For every purchase of these, TYR will donate 100% of its profits to O.U.R.
“We are incredibly thankful for this new collaboration with TYR and for the brand’s willingness to activate the CrossFit community in this fight against human trafficking which is an unfortunate occurrence in all fifty U.S. states. The proceeds from this collaboration with TYR will help us continue to pursue our mission to rescue victims of trafficking who desperately need our help,” said O.U.R. President and COO, Matt Osborne.
You can purchase the TYR O.U.R. CXT-1 Trainer on TYR.com for $150 USD.
In addition to shoe sales, TYR and O.U.R. will host an all-day workout fundraising event in Madison, Wisconsin, during the CrossFit Games. Athletes of all levels are invited to join the fight and participate in one of twelve unique ‘Hero’ workouts at the “TYR House” inside CrossFit Connex.
The event is open to the public and those interested can register to participate at TheTYRHouse.com.
