11012013- Charity Challenge Prelims

* Everyone try to get in today! The 530pm class will be high energy if you can make it, with snacks from Pita Pit after *

With the the holiday season rapidly approaching, we are putting together a fundraising event at the gym that will commence with our holiday party in December.  We are going to pair the fundraising event with a workout challenge that will have a baseline test to record everyone’s score and then a final test out to kick off our holiday party.  We will have scheduled heat times for everyone participating and then wrap up the event with lots of food, drinks, and good cheer!  Prizes for the top male and female score as well as the most improved male and female score will be awarded at the holiday party as well so bring your A-game!

The 25 dollars for entrance into the final workout and holiday party will be in support of Pathfinders; a Milwaukee community network serving to empower youth in crisis by providing them with emotional support, resources for basic needs, and tangible tools for a fresh start.  All funds raised will be put towards the basic needs of the youth that Pathfinders serve; providing things such as food, bus tickets, hygiene supplies, clothing, laundry and shower facilities.  We would like to set an ambitious goal of raising $2000!  You can read more about the Pathfinders organization by reading here.

When: Baseline Test:  Friday, November 1st during class; Saturday, November 2nd from 8:30-9:30am and 10:30-11:30am; Sunday, November 3rd from 10am-Noon.

Final Test:  Saturday, December 14th.  We will have heat times for everyone to sign up for and then finish out with holiday festivities!

Where:  CrossFit 414

Who:  We would love to see everyone sign up for the event and bring friends/family for both the final workout test and the holiday party!

What:  Everyone participating in the final event will pay $25 for entrance into the final workout with all proceeds going to Pathfinders.  We would love to achieve our goal of raising $2000, so any additional contribution would be great!
