Please let me interrupt the jokes about the name of today’s WOD to talk to you for a minute about Fight Gone Bad 6.
As the blogger for CrossFit NYC for the past three years (at least), I’ve had the joy of bringing you the WOD, pictures and stories of our members’ triumphs both small and large, and daily links on anything and everything crossfit-related (and not) that I thought you, our readership, would enjoy. And in case you didn’t know it, our readership isn’t just made up of CFNYC members, or folks contemplating trying CrossFit at our gym. Our readership includes military service folks in Afghanistan, crossfitters in the midwest, paleo adherents here in New York City and beyond, and all sorts of folks (hi, mom!) who enjoy what we offer here on a daily basis, ad-free.
Three years ago when we first participated in the Fight Gone Bad fundraiser, I offered to be Team Captain because it made sense that as the gym’s blogger, I could reach out to our members on their computer screens and encourage them to sign up or donate or both. I had a blast that first year when we only had 2 weeks to assemble a team and fundraise. We raised a ton of money given our small team and short time frame, and I resolved that the next year would be even better.
And it was. Last year we were 9th worldwide and raised over $28,000. All who participated told me how much they enjoyed the event and promised to join in again this year.
And here we are this year with many returning faces but also plenty of new ones. And we’ve been fundraising and training and getting psyched. I’ve been busy telling you about many of our members who are ready to participate at FGB6 this Saturday and have been working their tails off to put us currently in 8th place worldwide on fundraising with the biggest team out there (118 people!).
So now it’s my turn. I’d like to make an appeal here that if you enjoy what I provide here on a daily basis, at the behest of CFNYC ownership, then please consider donating to my FGB6 page.
We don’t take ads on this blog and never will. We provide the daily links for free and always will. Consider a donation to my page as a donation towards this blog and the free service we provide. Give what you can, even if it’s just $5 or $10, it really will help these great charities help those in need. Thank you so much!
