We’ve now got 18 people registered for Team CrossFit NYC for Fight Gone Bad 5: Lenny, Jai, Jacinto, Brett, Cathy, Mike M., Ben, Michael L., Chris G., Jenn T., Matthew P., Jim M., Marcos, Craig P., Kent, Jerry, Sully, and me. Click here to sign up–it takes just 5 minutes. (No registration fee, no minimums on how much money to raise.) We’ve already raised $850 and we’re ranked #5 of affiliates participating thus far.
Here’s Coach Jacinto‘s story of why he’s doing Fight Gone Bad yet again:
For the last 3 years I have participated in the Fight Gone Bad fundraiser to help raise money for the wounded warriors and prostate cancer survivors.
I am 71 years old and back in 2008 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Fighting this killer is like Rocky and Apollo Creed–it knocks you down but you keep coming at it. Attack it like you would a WOD. Hey, crossfitters are “hard to kill,” are they not?
This mugger picked on the wrong old guy because I am going to give it the best fight it ever had. I am in a world of hurt right now but I’ll get over it.
So come September 25th, get off your butts and participate in Fight Gone Bad 5.
And if you can’t participate, at least donate. Every little bit helps.
