Phoenix Effect Spartan Race


On December 9th, the team from The Phoenix Effect gym competed in the Spartan Race at Castaic Lake. The course tested their grit with grueling hills, 25 challenging obstacles and 4.5 miles of unapologetic terrain. Though they were tired, they victoriously conquered the course and put another Spartan Race in the books! 

In conjunction with the race, the competitors raised over $150,000 in just ten weeks which will go directly to our clients to provide basic necessities of life – food and shelter.

Thank you for everyone who participated and donated. Without your generosity and support, we could not do the work we do.

Special thanks to Beth Bishop and Jefferson Hendrick for their tireless dedication to the cause and for providing training to over 80 athletes!!
