Speaking of fundraising:
Josh Cederberg at CrossFit Billings sent me an email today with the following:
I wanted to extend an invite to your Gym to come over and participate in a Fundraiser WOD this Thursday. The fundraiser would benefit one of our members who was involved in a roping accident and is currently in the ICU. We are going to have the fundraiser on Thursday night (9/15) at 6:30pm. Everyone is welcome to come over and participate in the WOD all we ask is for a $20 buy in or donation of your choice. There will then be a Thirsty Thursday Social after the WOD (BYOB) for anyone who wants to stick around for a while and hang out. The WOD will be as follows:
We would love to have you guys join us!!
See you soon,
So . . . I have been fighting youtube on this video for quite a while, which is the delay for this post. In the end I got youtube to accept the video, but not to add more than one audio clip, so when the music cuts out, I apologize. However, I wanted to get it posted and have thrown in the towel on getting exactly what I wanted.
On to the more positive aspects of this fund raiser. We had 36 participants who raised $750+ , which doesn’t top our all time best in fund raising, but is a great start to starting over. I contacted Camp Patriot today and they were deeply touched. It appears that donations to veterans organizations are down compared to several years ago. Steve was the top men’s score at 385, Janel was the top woman’s score at 365 and Alan was the top fund raiser.
I want to make this an annual event around September 11th, so mark it on your calendars. If we do I might be willing to change up the New Year Tag team challenge. Maybe joint double newbie shuffle?
Once again everyone, an immense thank you. Veteran issues have always been a big part of Alternative Athletics, it has taken me a little time to get things running smoothly after the changes in management, but I am glad to have an annual veterans fund raiser back into the works.
