Let’s just say our fundraiser event on Saturday was another memorable event at Lake George CrossFit. This was our second annual event to raise money to help fight breast cancer through the very successful “Barbells for Boobs” breast cancer awareness campaign. We raised a ton of funds for a good cause, completed a very tough workout, and came together as a CrossFit community.
Below are some well-deserved “shout-outs” from Saturday:
-Jason Bowman: he was the man behind the tshirts and had them made up just in time for Saturday’s event. It was another great way for the community to raise funds, as well as a way for members to sport another shirt from an LGCF fundraising event. I know some of you “collect” these with pride, so it is another nice reminder of the contributions from Saturday.
-Sally: were any of you hungry at all on Saturday? The answer better be “no” as she provided an excellent spread of fruit, drinks, and muffins for everyone. If you were lucky enough, she gave you some of the extras to take home.
-Aron: those balloons were awesome! You made the rig look great for everyone to workout on.
-Lisa and Kevin Ostrander: they not only raised a ton in donations, they came in Friday night to help set up with the equipment AND early on Saturday morning before it started. Lisa rocked the workout and Kevin assisted in moving equipment around and taking some photos (they can be found here) during all the heats.
-Members: our event could not be possible without you all participating. The workout was supposed to be challenging, yet fun. Everyone pushed hard and had a good time. If you were unable to attend this year, definitely come out next time.
Once we have collected the money on the last few tshirts, we will be able to post the final amount on our team’s fundraising page. Our TOTAL fundraising amount will be very, very close to $10,000. Wow.
Ps. there is still one women’s medium tshirt if anyone is interested :)
