  • If you’ve got a camera that can take decent action shots and would be willing/able to take photos and/or video of our FGB5 Fundraiser on Sat., Sept. 25th, please drop me an email at allisonATcrossfitnycDOTcom.
    (You wouldn’t have to stick around to document the entire thing, even if you were able to be there for just an hour or so, that’d be great.)
    If I can get a few volunteers, we could get great footage of the event throughout the day…
    Whether you’re participating in the fundraiser or not, your volunteering to help photograph would be MUCH appreciated!
