Today, this post contains important information regarding the first ever DogTown CrossFit Crush Cancer 2011 Event! In previous years, DogTown participated and was the leading fundraiser for Fight Gone Bad (FGB). Although FGB is an awesome fundraiser with great charities attached to it, there’s no cancer component this year, so DogTown decided to create it’s own event.
Cancer is a cause that has deeply affected members of DogTown and it is a cause we strongly support. Our very own Adam Noble is a cancer survivor of over 5 years, and Dusty Hyland lost his brother in law to cancer not long ago. We have several members who have also been deeply affected by Cancer and we want to do something important in helping to find a cure. I myself, have lost numerous family members and friends to cancer.
DogTown is going out on a limb, and we have created our very own event, which we promise to be fun, exciting, and simply AWESOME in true DogTown style. The event, Crush Cancer 2011, will take place on October 22, 2011 at 9300 Culver Blvd. in Downtown Culver City (the parking lot across from Trader Joes and the Culver Hotel). Start time is 9:00am. There will be vendors from the community, food, and most important, a grueling workout!
