Tomorrow (Saturday) is the big fundraiser going down at 10am. Please come join us. I’m going to repost the info but if you know you’d like a sweet WCF shirt (all proceeds go to the Hooper family) already here’s the link to donate: Squareup.com/market/danial-hooper
We recently congratulated Dan and Joanie on getting married. Dan (Hoop) immediately became Dad to twin girls and AJ. Dan’s been working hard to provide for his family, he recently purchased a home, he’s getting CrossFit (sort of) and all in all life was going quite well. Unfortunately bad things happen to good people and AJ just spent a week in the hospital with life-threatening pneumonia. Dan has great insurance but in one of those inevitable twists of fate this happened just one month before his new family became eligible to share in his health insurance and as newlyweds they’re now left facing a hospital bill which could reach $10,000.
At WCF we’re a generous community and that’s true of CrossFitters in general. We’ve raised money for the Wounded Warrior foundation, Breast Cancer awareness, veterans, done food bank drives, and more. We’ll even be doing a Koins for Kenya fundraiser later this year to help fund a school in Africa. But for this Christmas season we’d like to help a family a little bit closer to home. We’re going to be doing a fundraiser WOD next Saturday (December 20th) for AJ, Dan, and Joanie. We’re printing awesome shirts designed by Ashley Conway and with the help of a few benefactors we’ll donate them to the fundraiser. You were probably dying to get a sweet new WCF shirt anyway so for $25 you can help a worthy cause this Holiday season and get of course get a a great Adrian Conway designed signature WOD in.

If you’re like Priscilla and I, you’ll reach into your pockets and donate a little more than the cost of a t-shirt. We’ve set up a link with square that will allow people to donate anonymously and generously if they choose. Or you can just grab a cool t-shirt and know that the money is going to a great cause close to home. As always, thank you for your support and we’re proud to be members of a community that cares about it’s own. We’ll be posting more details throughout the week about how you can get involved.
