We will be canceling classes at the gym this Saturday so we can participate in a benefit for the family of one of our members. In 2012, Matt Erickson lost both his mother, and his aunt to cancer. Now their family is facing even more challenge as one of Matt’s cousins is currently looking at her second round of chemotherapy.
To help Matt, his family, and as many other families as possible, we are asking you to join us in a fundraiser at CrossFit My Town this Saturday at 9:00. The entry fee is a donation to the charity, so we are looking to get as many of our people out to the event as possible.
We brought a group out last year to take on “The Sisters”, and it was an absolute blast. You can do the workout as an individual, or with a partner and there will also be plenty of scaling options available, so all ability levels are welcome. Here’s the workout:
2 Rounds of
57 Sit Ups
100 yard walking lunge
58 Pull Ups
1000 meter Run
More info about Saturday can be found on the event Facebook page, or you can contact Matt directly at email@example.com. Heats will be starting every 20 minutes beginning at 9:00, so we will be leaving from TwinTown at 8:15 to give us time to get out there and get warm. Meet at the gym before then if you would like to go with the group, otherwise you are welcome to meet us out there.
Come out and support Matt and his family with us this weekend!
