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, and we've raised close to $500,000 total for this organization since 2008. BCF is a local group 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.
What is Fight Gone Bad?
Three rounds of:
Wall-ball, 20lb, 10ft / 14lb, 10ft
Sumo deadlift high-pull, 75/55 pounds
Box Jump, 20" box
Push-press, 75/55 pounds
In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of "rotate", the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
Why donate to the Brooklyn Community Foundation?
Brooklyn is a city brimming with passion, creativity, and energy. It boasts top colleges, world class arts, beautiful open spaces, and a vibrant business and retail sector. From its architecture and cultural opportunities to its history and diversity, Brooklyn is a truly special place to live and grow. Unfortunately, this storied borough also has unacceptably high rates of poverty and unemployment, under-resourced public housing communities, high drop-out rates for young adults, poor maternal health statistics, vulnerable seniors, a growing number of home foreclosures, and an increasing number of people seeking emergency food relief. The Brooklyn Community Foundation connects donors to causes, fosters partnerships, and develops leaders to help contend with these crucial issues facing Brooklyn and its people.
