BENEFITING: Stand Up to Cancer
ORGANIZER: Stand Up To Cancer
EVENT: Crush Cancer
EVENT DATE: Oct 18, 2014
I’ve always participated in Crush Cancer and believe it’s an important cause to raise money for. But this year, for me, it’s personal. Two months ago my mom was diagnosed with stomach cancer. She’s currently undergoing chemo and will eventually have a surgery to remove her stomach. Her entire life she’s been healthy, strong and conscious of doing right by her body. There isn’t an explanation or reason I can dream up as to why this is happening to her and our family. Only that cancer doesn’t discriminate and even the most innocent can be victims. That’s why this year I’d like to crush the shit out of cancer. Please help me in raising as much money as we can to fight this thing head on. Every little bit counts.
Stand Up and join us in the 4th annual 2014 Crush Cancer event that benefits Stand Up To Cancer’s collaborative cancer research! This year, Crush Cancer will have two events that will be held in Miami, FL (Saturday, September 27) and Culver City, California (Saturday, October 18).
Crush Cancer is an endurance fundraising event and health expo where participants must raise $150 in order to participate. This circuit-training-style workout includes five different exercises. Participants are encouraged to perform as many reps of an exercise as possible for one minute. They then get one minute of rest and repeat the workout two additional times. The health expo is open throughout the day and features local shops, restaurants and businesses—as well as some of the biggest brands in the endurance workout space.
Crush Cancer has raised over $425,000 in three years and gyms from across the U.S (Denver, Boston and Las Vegas) and the world (Dubai, United Kingdom, Cayman Islands) have participated.
