HAPPY BIRTHDAY, RAFI!
From Jai, who is all blinged out, CF-style, and who has signed up to participate in the FGB6 Fundraiser at CFNYC again this year: “Fight Gone Bad last year demolished me . . . in a good way. The usual camaraderie of the gym is magnified by having a good cause to fight for. Last year my goal was just to get over 200 reps and raise more than $150, both of which I exceeded. This year I want to do everything RX’d and would love to “win” a hoodie [i.e., raise at least $500]. I am excited about everything except wall balls. Hate the wall balls.”
If you haven’t signed up for FGB6 as part of Team CrossFit NYC, it’s not too late. Remember, you don’t have to be a great athlete OR a great fundraiser. We’ll offer several scaling options on the WOD and there is no minimum amount of money to raise. So please consider signing up or if you cannot participate, consider donating to one of our athletes. If you’d like to donate to Jai, here’s her donation page.
