Announcing the “Workouts” For what I originally called ‘The Cape Cod Invitational.’ The event has developed into more of a Carnival style event for CrossFitters. My hopes for this event are:
1. Do something really good for someone. The whole idea for this event is very simple. In July, Shanna told me that Nicole Brigg’s 7 year old daughter was just diagnosed with cancer. Having daughters the same age-I thought that was heartbreaking. I had only met Nicole a handful of times. Strangely, within a week of my finding out, I ran into her at Trader Joe’s. She was very positive but as the conversation went on I realized that the financial burden and time commitments were massive. I believe that the best way to live life is to do for other people what you would want done for you. I knew we had to help. By ‘we’ I mean CrossFit Cape Cod, and our extended CrossFit family. Rather than just feel sad for a heartbreaking situation-action was needed. Hence the effort to raise money for a family that needs it, by a community of strong people doing something that they love to do.
2. Have a lot of Fun. These ‘competitons’ are one big party. Good WOD’s, good friends, good food, good drink, and a good cause. Isn’t that kind of what life’s all about?
I hope you join us September 1st. Here is the venue for what is, I hope, a very successful, very powerful gesture, from a very strong community to a family in need.
