The Fight Gone Bad 5 Fundraiser @ CFNYC has CROSSED THE $7000 MARK! Our latest teammates are the (fictional?!) Hans Slobo and the real Josh R., who writes “If 17 minutes of relatively mild discomfort will help wounded veterans, it’s the least I can do.” Clearly, Josh needs to push harder in his efforts during this WOD. (Just kidding, Josh!)
JOIN us on Team CrossFit NYC and help us continue to raise more money for these worthy causes (LIVESTRONG, Wounded Warrior Project, CrossFit Foundation) on Sat., Sept. 25th. (No registration fee, no minimum amount of money to raise!)
