Ninja Warrior athletes opened a children’s training area in Haiti

They partnered with World Orphan for the trip.

Thanks to everyone who helped support our trip to Haiti last month! A group of us from American Ninja Warrior partnered up with World Orphans where we set up a permanent Ninja Warrior training camp for hundreds of orphaned children to enjoy at the Olympic Center in Port-au-Prince. I’m still processing everything that we experienced, but the impact was life changing! When I find life to be especially challenging, I’ll quickly recall our reasons for traveling to Haiti. This trip gave me a better world perspective and reminded me of how grateful I am for EVERYTHING! We live in a very self-centered culture but I’m going to do my best to not conform to that way of thinking. I was created to serve, and I’m blessed to have that opportunity every day. Feel free to reach out to me directly if you’re interested in knowing more about my personal experience there. No matter what situation you find yourself in, never lose hope because you’re never alone! #LoveGodLiveFearless A big shoutout to Atomik Climbing Holds and for supplying our Haiti Ninja Warrior shirts and donating to our mission! #StraightOuttaHaiti #HaitiNinjas Music: Different by Micah Tyler

Back in November, a group of big-hearted Ninja Warriors traveled to Haiti on a very special mission. They partnered with World Orphans to set up a permanent Ninja Warrior-style training course for children at the Olympic Center in Port-au-Prince.

Allyssa Beird, Barclay Stockett, James McGrath, Michelle Warnky, Nate Burkhalter, and April Gould all took part, to name just a few of the American Ninja Warriors on the trip.

When they weren’t working hard on the training camp, they were busy making memories that will stick with them forever.

The trip was an amazing experience that deeply touched all the athletes that took part.

They also raised donations to help the children they were visiting.

Take a look at some of the photos and videos they shared on social media below!
