Fight Gone Bad V is here!

Can’t be with us today but still want to donate to our efforts at the Fight Gone Bad V charity event? Click here to donate to one of the members of Team CFNYC!

From 9am through 4pm today, we will be doing the “Fight Gone Bad” workout on a first-come, first-served basis, giving priority to those who pre-registered for time slots at the top of each hour. (Given the 7-hour schedule, we do not expect any problems in getting people through in a timely fashion.) Expect your visit to take an hour, from warming up, to doing the workout with a partner counting reps for you, and then returning the favor for him or her. We will have a full supply of healthy snack options for post-workout refueling to thank you for your participation and fundraising efforts (fresh fruit, nuts, nut butters, beef jerky, etc.).
If you have not yet signed up to participate but would still like to, come on down and we can get you signed up on the spot. (There is no minimum amount required for fundraising but we hope you will make an effort to collect at least a bit of money from friends/family or simply make a small donation to your own efforts.)
People can continue to donate to your profile page through October 1st, so if you haven’t yet reached your $150 goal to receive a free t-shirt, don’t worry, you still have a chance to qualify for one.
If you can, please bring a camera and/or video camera (even if it’s just on your phone!) to help us document the day if you can–let’s make this day a celebration of our community and how we can work together for the greater good and have fun while we do so!

  • Wondering how to get your FGB5 T-shirt?
    You are eligible for a FGB5 T-shirt if you are a FGB5 registered participant, and raise $150.00 or more by the donation deadline, October 1, 2010 at 5pm PST. So if you haven’t gotten to $150 yet, bug your friends and family again and you easily have enough time to raise that $150!
    T-shirt sizes will be collected via email after the donation deadline. T-shirts will be shipped to Team Captains (i.e., me, Allison Bojarski) for distribution.
    Any further questions? Please email

  • Thank you so much to each and every one of you who donated, participated, counted reps, took pictures, encouraged each other, supported each other.
    This year was a blast and today’s energy and goodwill made all the work I put in as team captain so worth it.
    I’m glad everyone had such a great time!
    We’re currently in 9th place for affiliates worldwide but the official cutoff on donations isn’t until October 1st, so please help keep us in the Top 10 by doing one last go-round of asking friends and family to donate.
