A friend of mine, Tom Meehan, a man who helped and pushed me when first starting Crossfit, is running a charity WOD with his brother on the 19th September. He is trying to get this to as wide an audience as possible and with The Athlete Centre involved he now has a box in the UK adding their voice. If you could please help by donating any small amount we would all greatly appreciate it. Here is Tom's story and why the Reps4MS is set up: 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. Please contact James or Tom Meehan at for additional information. We thank you for your continued support! For the Cause, James and Tom Thank you for reading and thank you to everyone at The Athlete Centre for getting involved. Leighton James
