Get in line. Don't make waves. Conform. Turn a blind eye. Stand for nothing.
What have we learned working with other men in the gloom?
That we have a bigger purpose in this world, that we must stand for something, that there is a right and a wrong, that solid leadership is absolutely critical in our homes, communities and places of work, that if we turn a blind eye that no problem will fix itself and that we are FREED TO LEAD.
In Columbia, we've built a workout around the men in the Oliver Gospel Mission's Recovery Program, and a program at Palmetto Place Children's Shelter. In being FREED TO LEAD in these efforts, we've learned that leadership and involvement is the lifeblood of these programs and without efforts like ours they can not touch the lives that they are designed to touch. We have also been humbled by the response from the people in these groups and that response has taught us how starved our world is for men who will make the effort to step up and help those in need, men who will not turn a blind eye to the suffering around them, men who will take it upon themselves to make lives better, men who will put themselves THIRD.
PLEASE HELP US FURTHER THESE EFFORTS BY BUYING A SHIRT TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT WHILE ALSO CONTRIBUTING A FEW DOLLARS TO THESE CAUSES.
Depending on the shirt style, $5-$8 from each sale will go directly towards Columbia's efforts to invigorate male community leadership around the Midlands.
Specifically, we’ll use revenue to:
Support The Mission AO: We give each man a F3 jersey, but from time-to-time we provide money for clothes, other gear, and even medicine.
Provide financial support for programs at Palmetto Place Children’s Shelter.
Provide assistance to cover fees to allow F3 Columbia to incorporate to streamline fundraising efforts.
A special thanks to Chaser and Kim Jong assisting in the concept, and to @thepaperapron for executing on the idea.

Style Option: MudGear Fitted Race Jersey Short Sleeves
The MudGear Fitted Race Jersey features a tapered race cut that fits close to the skin without compression. The fabric is a custom poly blend with a honeycomb patterned four way stretch that melds performance with toughness. This highly breathable material wicks sweat and keeps your comfortable during a long beat down. Heavy duty flat lock stitching adds durability and strength.
Size and Fit The MudGear Race Jersey is intentionally fitted and tapered. Use the size chart below as a guide, but when close or in doubt, go a size larger. Remember that a fitted race cut shirt will accentuate every muscle and hug every fat roll. Plan accordingly. This is a performance race shirt, not a look-good-on-the-treadmill shirt.
Style Option: MudGear Loose Tee (Short or Long Sleeves)
The MudGear Loose Tee features the same functionally strong, advanced wicking fabric found in our fitted race jersey in a comfortable loose cut. It is go-to training shirt with a four way stretch that melds performance with toughness. Heavy duty flat lock stitching adds durability and strength. Long Sleeves function well as a single layer or base layer for colder training and racing.
