HELP NEW FRONTIER FITNESS HELP REFUGEES !! 

In less than a month Jason Battiste and Kiian Knight are going to Amman, Jordan to teach and set up a kickboxing program for refugees.  They will be working with adults and children who have fled war, many of whom have suffered unimaginable amounts of trauma and loss. 

Anyone who has trained with these two kickboxing dynamos knows what an inspiring and life changing an experience it can be. We believe that the empowering and healing aspects of kickboxing will have a profound impact on the mental and physical wellbeing of the refugee community, many of whom suffer from PTSD, alienation and the overall stress of life as a refugee. 

Jason and Kiian are donating their time and paying their own way to Jordan. BUT in order for this program to really be long lasting and successful we need your help!

We need money to buy pads, gloves, wraps, ropes and bags to use for training that can then be left behind so that the kickboxing program can continue long after Jason and Kiian have left. They also need money to pay the translators who will be translating from English to Arabic during their classes. 

We are hoping that the New Frontier Fitness community can help make this a reality by donating to purchase the gear we need. Anything will help!

$5 pays for a skipping rope

$25 for a set of pads

$65 pays a translator for a day

Jason and Kiian will  be working at The Collateral Repair Project (CRP), a grassroots non-profit that has a unique holistic approach to helping the most desperate urban refugees in Jordan. First they help them get their most basic needs met with food and household supplies, then they provide therapeutic and community building classes in everything from yoga to computer programming so that people can rebuild their shattered lives, meet others like them and learn new skills. I have been on the board of directors of CRP for seven years and spent countless hours in its bustling community centre. It is truly an amazing place. I wanted the people there who have been through the worst life has to offer to benefit from getting trained by the best!!

Please help us send some love from NFF to CRP 

THANK YOU!!!

From Tara, Jason and Kiian
