JULY 11, 2023, SEAL BEACH, CA. – TYR announced its first-ever custom collaboration with global charity Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) to launch a limited-edition O.U.R. CXT-1 Trainer from which 100% of the profit will be donated directly to the organization. Beginning today, the limited edition CXT-1 Trainer with a signature O.U.R. black and yellow design are available for purchase via TYR online. As a nonprofit comprising global law enforcement, military, survivors, and civilians, Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) is dedicated to its mission to lead the fight against all human trafficking which affects 40.3 million people around the world—25% of which are estimated to be children (Liberate Children).
“TYR is proud to join forces with O.U.R. for their crucial mission,” said TYR CEO, Matt DiLorenzo. “We are excited to donate 100% of the profit from our special O.U.R. CXT-1 Trainer and make an even greater impact on the quality of the lives of others. 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, which will take place throughout the day, are open to the public and 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.
