EVENT: Reps 4 MS 2015
This fundraiser is in support of Reps 4 MS. Here is info about the fundraiser from the folks who started it: Over 26 years ago, our Mom, Lynn, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. MS is a chronic disease of the central nervous system. It is an unpredictable condition that can be benign, disabling or devastating. We are blessed that Mom has been able to get to where she wants to go and do what she wants to do as comfortably as possible during her MS journey. As lifelong supporters, participants and volunteers in our local MS communities, we decided to challenge ourselves to find a new way to increase our efforts to raise awareness and help find a cure for MS. In September 2014, we founded “Reps 4 MS” and brought two great communities together to workout and fundraise to help find a cure for MS. As co-founders of Reps 4 MS, we are partnering with the Multiple Sclerosis Society and CrossFit Affiliates worldwide to raise MS awareness through our annual fundraising event to support our Mom and all those affected with this difficult disease. This event is open to all CrossFit Affiliates and Individual Athletes who want to participate and support our fundraiser. Reps 4 MS intends to donate all proceeds raised to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
