24 HOURS OF HEROES
June 22-23, 2024
24 Hours of Heroes is a fundraiser that revolves around community, teamwork, and health.
Our goal is to raise $50k in direct financial contributions to Alexandra House – an emergency Women’s shelter in Blaine, MN that provides support for those affected by domestic and sexual abuse.
The 2024 edition of the 24 Hours of Heroes will be a team format event!
For 24 Hours straight, you and your team will complete s24 Hero workouts together for a true marathon of fitness.
Each workout will constitute as a “leg” of a relay race. One athlete will complete a leg before tagging out with a teammate. Some workouts will involve multiple legs of transition (lookup the Hero workout Clovis, it’ll make sense).
You and your team will support each other with cheers, food, fitness, and transportation across the 24 hours!
Teams will be made up of anywhere from 2-10 athletes, with different scales and modifications of each workout being offered so teams can be made up of varying abilities.
Recruit your team, reserve your camper van, block off the dates of June 22-23 in 2024, and get ready to raise $50,000 for Alexandra House in what is sure to be an incredible event.
Stay tuned for more details (including sponsorship info), coming soon!
You’ll register for the event through ZenPlanner. In the process, you’ll identify your team and team name.
We will release a sign-up for workouts to all registered participants in mid-May.
You’ll sign up for each workout you plan to complete.
Athletes will need to finalize their individual workout sign-ups one week before the event so our equipment volunteers plan logistics.
Do a few workouts in the beginning of the 24 hour period, the middle and the end! We think of the middle as the midnight hours… it’s a blast! similarly you could “chunk” some workouts and different points of the 24 hours, one or several times.
“The Every Other”
Doing 12 workouts in 24 hours is hard. Being at the gym for all 24 hours to participate in workouts and support others, rest and prepare during your off hours is a great way to be a part of this community event!
“The One and Done”
Do a workout at any time during the 24 hour period. Maybe do another if you’re feeling it, and stick around to cheer on others and help raise more funds for Alexandra House!
“The Kitchen Sink”
All 24. Buckle up. This is not recommended for most people, but if you think you’re up for the challenge, shoot us an email at [email protected].
Our incredible volunteers have created a fundraising kit to help athletes fundraise for Alexandra House.

Absolutely! You’re welcome to invite friends and family to cheer the workouts. We will have designated spectator areas set where they can watch workouts safely.
We ask that spectators not touch our use any gym equipment. Our volunteers will handle all the equipment needs of the athletes.
As awesome as dogs are, they are also unpredictable, and tend to leave hair around. Not to mention that many people are some combination of afraid and allergic to them. So they are a hard NO for us in and around the gym.
A lot of our members have kids who are old enough to sit and watch workouts, or a device of some sort. We’re all for it.
Kids should never enter the workout zone and must be closely attended elsewhere in and around the gym. We rely on parents to set these rules and enforce them.
We are planning Kids programming on Saturday where they’ll get to help out our athletes and do a fun workout themselves – stay tuned for details!
