Today, I’m going to take a break from the epilepsy angle and write a little bit about a cause that I’ve been involved in for 4 straight years. This post contains important information regarding the second annual DogTown CrossFit Crush Cancer 2012 Event! If you’re one of the two people that have been following me since last year, I wrote about it here as well. Last year, DogTown went out on a limb, and created their very own event, which was fun, exciting, and simply AWESOME in true DogTown style. The event, will take place on October 27, 2012 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! Afterward, we will host a book signing of ‘Practical Paleo‘ by Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites as well.
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’s own words on this charity: “Cancer has touched all our lives, some of us, have lost loved ones. It’s time to Crush Cancer. On October 27 go a few rounds at DogTown Crossfit to help us raise funds to find a cure. We stand up to cancer. Stand with us.
Help find a cure for Cancer! In 2009, DogTown (then CrossFit Culver City) was the top fundraising affiliate for FIGHT GONE BAD 4 in the world, raising 64,000 dollars for Prostate Cancer, Research and the Wounded Warrior Foundation. In 2010, newly opened DogTown CrossFit, was the second leading fundraising affiliate in the world for FIGHT GONE BAD 5 with just over 53,000 dollars. Last year we raised over 50,000 in the first annual Crush Cancer event. Please donate, participate and help us find a Cure for Cancer…….!!!!”
