BENEFITING: BROOKLYN COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
EVENT: Fight Gone Bad 2013
EVENT DATE: Oct 19, 2013
Since 2008, CrossFit South Brooklyn has conducted a yearly fundraiser in the form of a workout called Fight Gone Bad. Last year, we raised over $34,000 for the Brooklyn Community Foundation. BCF is a local organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of people in Brooklyn by strengthening communities through local giving, grantmaking and community service. This year, we'll be partnering with BCF again and hope to surpass last year's donation numbers.
I've been competing in and raising money by way of Fight Gone Bad since 2009. Some people run races for charity, I - apparently - do a brutal workout, and it's fantastic. Being able to raise money with the community I am part of to benefit the community that I live in is worth the 15 mins of "ugh". I hope that you will consider helping out my cause again this year and support BCF!
