BENEFITING: Team Joseph Inc
EVENT DATE: Oct 17, 2015
On October 17th, the Battle of the Boroughs at CrossFit ANNEX in Chatham New Jersey will bring together some of the finest athletes in Northern New Jersey, ranging in age from teenagers to masters (50+) athletes to support Team Joseph. Join our CrossFitters caring community in efforts to use our muscle to support kids that can not. Through the 2015 Battle of the Boroughs, we all will help the many young boys affected by Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Raising money to support cutting edge research offers these kids a chance at a better life; a chance to maintain their muscle health!
Formed around the fight of Joseph Penrod, "Team Joseph" began with Joseph’s Mom Marissa, who would not let her son be defined by his diagnosis and with the support of family, friends and an army of volunteers, Team Joseph has evolved into the movement it is today. Team Joseph believes that it is not a matter of IF a cure is found; it’s a matter of WHEN. Exciting research is happening all over the world and The ANNEX Sports Performance Center is proud to raise funds to support scientific advances that will defeat Duchenne. Our ANNEX family is proud to contribute to TEAM Joseph and the many families affected by Duchennes!
Rick Porcello, a long time Annex Sports Performance athlete, first supported Team Joseph in Detroit and now in Boston continues to maintain an important relationship with Joseph and his team. CrossFit Annex is proud to lend it’s strength to support this worthy cause. Rick has inspired his friends at the CROSSFIT Annex to use our strength to work to generously support the quest to fund research for Duchenne.
On October 17th, each athlete will compete in three CrossFit workouts over the course of the one-day competition, which are designed to test each athlete's strength, speed, stamina and agility. The workouts will consist of exercises and routines familiar to CrossFit athletes, including but not limited to running, rowing, Olympic weight lifting and body weight exercises. A special Team inspired workout will be unveiled for Joseph. The winners in each division will win bragging rights as Battle of the Boroughs champions and receive a uniquely crafted prize package!
At the heart of our Annex Sports Performance /CrossFit Annex community is a desire to lend support and raise much needed funds. Please help our athletes achieve our fund raising goals and give generously TODAY.
