As some of you may remember, in past years Crow Hill has done a fundraiser for the Brooklyn Community Foundation using the workout Fight Gone Bad. We missed the last year or two, but we’re back this year and going to make it our biggest event yet!
The event itself will take place on Saturday, October 20th, beginning at 10am. The cost of this event will be $30/person, which will cover the cost of the team shirts plus administrative fees.
We will be starting out registration for the event this week. You can ether sign up solo and we will assign you to a team, or you can get four of your favorite workout buddies and sign up together as a team of five. There will be RX and scaled divisions! All athletes competing will also be required to judge either an earlier or later heat as well.
We will be assigning teams by the second week of October. It will be you and your team’s responsibility to come up with a team name (the more creative, the better!) and we will be ordering custom shirts for each team with their team’s name on them, in whatever color you want.
Then it will be up to you and your team to raise money between now and the event for The Brooklyn Community Foundation. We will be doing this event concurrently with CrossFit South Brooklyn (who raised $21,000 last year alone!) and CrossFit 718. We will be using Crowdrise as the platform to raise the money. Each team will pick a captain, who will then set up their team’s fundraising page.
We also encourage each team to be creative and fun: so wear costumes! Make it a party!
We will be awarding prizes for numerous things, including top RX team, top scaled team, top fundraiser, and best dressed. (We are looking for donations for prizes, so if you or your business has something they can donate to help the fundraiser, please contact me at email@example.com).
Oh, and if you aren’t familiar with Fight Gone Bad, here’s the workout:
3 Rounds For Reps:
Wall Balls, 20lb, 10ft / 14lb, 9ft
Sumo Deadlift High-Pulls, 75/55 lb
Box Jumps, 20″ box
Push-presses, 75/55 lb
In this workout, you move from each of 5 stations after a minute. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. When the announcer calls “Rotate,” athletes must move to next station immediately. Each of the 3 rounds is 4 minutes, followed by a one-minute rest. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
So sign up! Put a team together! Start thinking of an amazing team name and let’s get fundraising!
