TYR X O.U.R CXT-1 TRAINER
TYR and Operation Underground Railroad have partnered in the launch of the limited-edition O.U.R. CXT-1 Trainer. Global charity Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) is dedicated to the fight against human trafficking which affects 40.3 million people around the world — 25% of which are estimated to be children. The shoe retails for $150 and 100% of the profits will be donated directly to O.U.R.
O.U.R. is a nonprofit comprising of global law enforcement, military, survivors, and civilians, combatting global human trafficking and child exploitation. O.U.R. goes to the darkest corners of the world to assist in rescuing children from slavery and ensure ongoing aftercare, providing cutting-edge tools and resources to law enforcement throughout the United States, while strengthening preventative efforts that benefit at-risk children worldwide.
The O.U.R. CXT-1 Trainer is TYR’s first-ever custom collaboration, and this special limited edition features a signature O.U.R. black and yellow design. “TYR is proud to join forces with O.U.R. for their crucial mission,” said TYR CEO, Matt DiLorenzo. “Our customers represent strength, and we look forward to seeing them wear this shoe to show their support for this pressing cause.”
In addition to the creation of the O.U.R. CXT-1 Trainer, TYR and O.U.R. will host an all-day workout fundraising event in Madison, WI, during the CrossFit® Games. Athletes of all levels are invited to join the fight against child sex trafficking and sexual exploitation by participating in twelve unique “Hero” workouts at the “TYR House” inside Connex Gym. The workouts are open to the public and will take place throughout the day. Those interested in participating can register by going to TheTYRHouse.com.
“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.
