OUTWOD Detroit - February 2016

On Saturday, February 13th, 2016, OUTWOD, the largest national organization for bringing together LGBTQ athletes and their allies to sweat together in a safe, inclusive group fitness environment, will be expanding to our 5th national market, Detroit, Michigan.

The inaugural workout and event will be hosted by CrossFit in the D with proceeds supporting The Ruth Ellis Center.

The Ruth Ellis Center, incorporated in 1999, is a youth social services agency that serves the needs of runaway, homeless and at-risk youth.  We are one of the nation’s leading experts on vulnerable youth who are experiencing residential instability.  The mission of the Center is to “provide short and long-term residential safe space and support services for runaway, homeless, and at-risk lesbian, gay, bi-attractional, transgender, and questioning youth.”  The REC is the only organization in the country that has a Residential program for LGBTQ youth in the foster care and juvenile justice system, and is mission specific to LGBTQ youth experiencing homelessness.  While the Center emphasizes serving LGBTQ youth who are often ostracized, shamed, and denied services by other agencies, no youth, regardless of gender identity and/or sexual orientation is turned away or denied services.  Furthermore, all youth who seek our assistance receive the highest level of services based on trauma informed care, late adolescent development theory, and best practices for serving homeless youth.
