HAVE YOU HEARD OF CROSSFIT FOR HOPE?
Due to some legal drama, the Fight Gone Bad Fundraiser that we’ve participated in during the Fall for the past two years is now defunct. To take the place of the fundraiser, CrossFit has created CrossFit for Hope which they scheduled for Saturday, June 9th. Bits of info from the site are below.
Since we just had our amazing Memorial Day Murph Fundraising BBQ Event, we felt it wouldn’t be fair to ask you all to contribute to another fundraiser so soon after. So what we’re doing is planning on doing the workout anyway. We’ll just have one class scheduled so we can have one large fun group. It won’t be an event like Murph, just a bunch of us cheering each other on through the WOD. We still may do snacks and drinks for after if you’re interested. You’ll find the link below if you would like to contribute and donate and/or collect donations. But we won’t require you to do so. Totally up to you.
If you have any questions or input on this please let us know! Thanks!
CROSSFIT FOR HOPE - SATURDAY/JUNE 9, 2012
What’s CrossFit for Hope?
CrossFit is combatting childhood cancer and other deadly diseases through its inaugural CrossFit for Hope fundraiser, benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

You can either register to be a participant , sponsor participants and affiliates, or both. As a registered participant, people can search for you through the site. Seek out sponsors and have them visit your page to make a pledge or donation.
The workout: “Hope”
Three rounds of:
75 pound Power snatch
Box jump, 24″ box
75 pound Thruster
Chest to bar Pull-ups
“Hope” has the same format as Fight Gone Bad. In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of “rotate,” the athlete/s must move to next station immediately for good score. One point is given for each rep.
WORKOUT OF THE DAY
Bench Press 1-1-1-1-1-1-1
15 minute Partner AMRAP
40 Kettlebell Swings, 53/35lbs
Between you and your partner, alternate who does the 500m row for each round. Whichever partner isn’t rowing works on the kettlebell swings and toes-to-bar. When the partner rowing completes 500m, he/she can help complete the kettlebell swings and toes-to-bar, but only one partner can work on these two exercises at a time.
