Paleo Challenge Day 13/30
NO CF KIDS TODAY!!! Coach Ashley is competing in Minnesota. Varsity tomorrow is ON
CF Kids will be cancelled this Wednesday.
We will have a recap of the Granite Games in another post tonight or tomorrow morning. However, I can not stress how proud of this community for supporting all the Granite competitors over the past few months of qualifying and training. And for the outpouring of support through social media over the weekend. It has been an amazing experience and knowing you all are rooting for us and supporting us is a huge help. From all the competitors, thank you.
It appears we will have around $1500 to split for the Paleo Challenge. Remember the prizes go to the first, second and third place finishers in each gender. So don’t give up, everyone has a chance at some booty. We still have a few outstanding payments for the challenge. Please submit payment soonest so we can get a legit tally of funds. We are seeking input on the prizes you guys would like to see. Please post to “comments” ideas for prizes. We should have about $500 to get cool stuff. Terri McCabe has generously donated a free private Pilates session at Core Fitness to the female and male winners. Thanks Terri.
We are proud to announce we will be hosting a fundraising WOD and silent auction October4 for Creativets. Creativets is a non-profit created by a very dear friend of Ashley, Richard Casper. “CreatiVets’ mission is to provide disabled veterans with the opportunity to use art therapy, music, and creative writing to address the psychological and emotional needs that arise from combat- related trauma. Our goal is to provide artistic resources and accessible space to veterans in order to foster self-expression, enhance coping skills, manage stress, and strengthen their sense of self through the healing power of music, writing and visual art.”
We are working on donations for a silent auction and hope you will share this with your friends, CrossFitters and Non-CrossFitters alike to join us October 4 to help support this incredibly noble cause. We will be doing a WOD in teams of 2 and will have mini WODs throughout the day. If you offer products and/or services you would like to donate for our silent auction please talk to Ashley or John about getting involved. If you have family or friends who you know have a product or service to offer please reach out to them and ask for support. Creaviets has 501 (c) (3) status and donations are deductible to the extent of the tax code.
When the Box is open for classes the Box is open for you to work on auxiliary work. Strength, skill, gymnastics. The back (from the turf) is open to practice outside of WODs. We encourage everyone to come in with any free time and get extra work in. Just check in with a coach and let them know you will not be joining the WOD. But please, yield to athletes performing the WOD. They have dibs on gear.
As always, any comments, questions or concerns, please share with us. Please email, Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org for feedback.
