A member of our community and family in the gym needs some help. Amy N. has an 8 year old nephew who just this week was diagnosed with leukemia and has begun chemotherapy. Amy started a gofundme.com site to help her brother’s family offset the financial burden that is surely another stress on an already stressful situation (their house recently flooded as well).
We want to help. Today we programmed the WOD “Hope for Cures” (it’s the WOD that CrossFit created to benefit finding cures for cancer/terminal illness in kids). We are asking that anyone who wants to donate to help young Ethan’s family to please donate online at the below link or if you have cash then bring it to the gym tomorrow. We will be sure to get it to Amy. Let’s help out one of our own. Thank you to everyone who has donated already! 3-2-1 Go Ethan! You can beat this!

Big changes coming for the CrossFit Games Open and Regionals. I have to say I love these changes. It’s truly getting harder to advance through the Games season and there is now a better chance of seeing the fittest CrossFit athletes compete at the Games.
