10th Annual Christmas in July sponsored by the Texas Motorcycle Roadriders Association, (TMRA).

Welcome TMRA Kaufman Police Escort Riders Finding some shade Over 153 Bikes Fun and Fellowship Christmas in July

On July 13th, the shelter was visited by a gathering of SUPER HEROES who braved the sweltering heat to help our kids.  The gathering sported 153 motorcycles, carrying over 200 people to spend a day with the kids at the shelter for Food, Fun, Fellowship and Funds.  Bikers from all over the state of Texas and beyond gather to support our work with some of Texas’ most vulnerable children.  The children were blessed with lots of attention and entertainment.  The shelter was blessed with some much needed funding assistance and lots of things from our needs list.  And we all had lots of food and fun.

A very special “THANKS” to all our motorcycle clubs and friends for their continuous support and care for our kids.

Thank you ABATE for helping again to prepare, cook, serve and clean up.

Thanks to Kaufman Police Department for escorting our very special friends to our party.

United Way “Kick Off” Breakfast

On Wednesday, September 11, 2013, we will prepare breakfast for United Way Board of Directors.   This is also the United Way’s “Day of Caring” where all the board members choose a non-profit to volunteer several hours.  Last year we had four members spend the day playing with the kids; doing laundry; preparing and serving meals/snacks; dusting and “visiting” with our staff and kids.

Bring a Toy!

20 Mustang Ct., Forney, Texas 75126

See event on Facebook.

CrossFit Forney would like to invite you to our official grand opening! YES, we’ve been here for a bit and it’s been long over due but we’re finally ready! What better way to introduce our gym to the community than by giving back to it.


We would like everyone to bring a toy and help turn our grand opening into a toy drive for the Norville Center. The A. Fern Norville Shelter Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for children and young adults who are displaced from their families, or who are involved in the foster care system due to abuse, neglect or abandonment.


We have 3 tires stacked up about 50″ inches tall. Our goal is to fill it up with toys! Please come celebrate with us and help us give back to kids that are in need. There will be a workout so be ready to workout and have some fun. We’re going try to have a wod going every 30 minutes so you’ll have plenty of chances to get the work out in.
