First just want to remind everyone about the fundraiser WOD we are doing this Saturday June 9th called “CrossFit for Hope”. It is really similar to the format of Fight Gone Bad which we did last year, but this fundraiser raises money for St. Jude’s Children Hospital which helps fight childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. The goal this year is to raise 1.7million dollars worldwide, the operating cost for the hospital for one day. This is totally optional to donate, but even the smallest amount makes a difference. If you want to donate and haven’t yet, here is a link to the my general donation site for the gym: https://hope.crossfit.com/sponsor?id=U28251. I know there are also a few others in the gym who are trying to raise money: Alicia, Sean, Tim, and Sue F., are who I know of if you would like to support them. To support them you just go to hope.crossfit.com, click on donate now and then enter the name or affiliate you want to sponsor. Thank you to those who have already donated, those that are pledging donations, and those who will donate! Again, the WOD will be on Sunday and will look like this:
Three rounds of: Burpees 75 pound Power snatch Box jump, 24″ box 75 pound Thruster Chest to bar Pull-ups
“Hope” has the same format as Fight Gone Bad. In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of “rotate,” the athlete/s must move to next station immediately for good score. One point is given for each rep.
Today we are saying “Happy Birthday” to Andrea whose birthday it was Monday, but since she decided to celebrate it in Vegas, we are celebrating it now that she is back! Happy 30th Birthday Andrea…you better get your butt in here for this one!
