CrossFit Redondo was kind enough to let me stop by and shoot their CrossFit for Hope fundraiser last weekend. They were able to raise $6,782, which is huge for a brand-spaking-new affiliate. They’re in the top 50 affiliates who raised money, ranking at number 34. I know I linked my readers to their donation page, so if you did in fact donate, I wanted to say thank you so, so, so much! Once again, the CrossFit community and its unwaivering support for causes bigger than itself never ceases to impress and humble me. Congratulations to CrossFit Redondo for a job well done!
So, as you all know, I participated in “Amazing Grace” this weekend at CrossFit 310 in order to raise money (and awareness) for breast cancer. It was such a great turn out. Sarah Money did such an excellent job organizing the entire event. We had TSAC there, as well as Code 3. It was my first time ever performing “Grace” and I think it’s safe to say I’m in love with her! Above is a video a friend shot of me on Saturday which I edited (added music) for a more dramatic impact. What can I say, I enjoy appealing to pathos. It’s weird though, watching yourself on video, but also a really useful tool. I couldn’t believe how wobbly my knees were and how narrow my stance was, and seriously…what’s with the mouth / facial expression? Oh well, now I know!
P.S. Barbells For Boobs is still raising money this month! If you haven’t already donated, please do so by clicking the link and helping them reach their fundraising goal. I cannot even begin to thank my friends, family & readers enough for the contributions that were made before the event. You’ve probably saved someone’s mother or daughter.
I’ll be participating in “Grace” at CrossFit 310 this weekend (Saturday, October 22nd)
and would be absolutely thrilled if you supported me and my CrossFit family by donating
