What is One Summit?

One Summit is a non-profit organization focused on building resilience in kids battling cancer through experiential learning with Navy Seals, storytelling, and community engagement. 

One Summit’s main objective is for their community to achieve growth by conquering adversity. They use rock climbing as the medium for facing challenges, working together and confronting obstacles. At Climb for Courage, pediatric cancer patients and their siblings are matched 1:1 with a U.S. Navy SEAL and guided through a series of rock-climbing challenges and a learning curriculum based on teamwork, goal setting and overcoming adversity.

Each year, One Summit teams up with CrossFit affiliates across the country in honor of Nate Hardy, a Navy SEAL, Purple Heart recipient and hero killed in action on February 4, 2008 and his brother Josh, who lost his battle to childhood cancer. 

Their experience coupled with the long-lasting relationship formed with their Navy SEAL mentor provides each child with the additional source of strength and encouragement they need in their battle against cancer.

How are we supporting One Summit?

Alongside our donation of $5k, the HWPO Team and our community have been getting involved with the NATE WOD CHALLENGE.

The NATE WOD CHALLENGE is a fundraiser event hosted by One Summit to raise funds to support their mission of building resilience in kids battling cancer through experiential learning with Navy SEALs, storytelling and community engagement. 

NATE HARDY was a Navy SEAL, Purple Heart recipient and hero killed in action, on 2/4/2008. The 2-4-8 rep scheme of the workout is symbolic for the day Nate made the ultimate sacrifice.

You can participate in the NATE WOD CHALLENGE from Feb 4-March 4 to honor the life of Nate and the amazing work of One Summit. Here’s the challenge:

  • 20 Minute AMRAP
  • 2 Muscle-Ups
  • 4 Handstand Push-Ups
  • 8 Kettlebell Swings 70#/54#
