CrossFit Annex: Battle of the Boroughs 2016 Benefitting Team Joseph!
On Saturday, October 29th, 2016 the Third Annual Battle of the Boroughs at CrossFit Annex, New Jersey will bring together some of the finest athletes in the region, ranging in age from teenagers to masters (50+) athletes. Athletes will compete in three CrossFit workouts over the course of the one-day competition, 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. The winners in each age category will win bragging rights as Battle of the Boroughs 2016 Champions in addition to an extraordinary prize package!
At the heart of CrossFit Annex is our sense of community and an equally strong sense of family. Our goal is to support Team Joseph as a philanthropic cause important to so many of us. Inspired by Joseph Penrod and his Mom, Marissa, we are committed to supporting the quest to fund cutting edge research to find a treatment and a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a condition affecting generations of young boys just like Joseph. Together we are working to fund and support important scientific research and advances to defeat Duchenne!
Joseph, now 14, is again expected to join us this year along with his Mom and family. Rick Porcello, Annex athlete and Pitcher for the Boston Red Sox Introduced The Annex to Team Joseph and is an avid supporter. We hope he too will join us for our day of competition and fun.
CrossFit communities around the world are regular participants in workout-based fundraisers to support a variety of causes. We invite you to join us for Battle of the Boroughs 2016! Participate in a fantastic fun-filled, feel good day benefitting Team Joseph. CrossFit athletes, volunteers and spectators welcome.
