TAPS Fundraiser Workout Today & PR Saturday

By Sean | In Events and Announcements | on June 30, 2012

Amanda is an avid volunteer for TAPS and suggested them as the beneficiary for today’s Fundraiser. Thanks for all you do Amanda!

Due to a glitch in updating, my earlier post didn’t capture all of the details of today so I’ll highlight them again since many of them were erased. As mentioned before today’s workout will be accomplished in teams of up to 3 people. Today’s workouts will run at 9am and 10am just like the normal Saturday workouts, but the suggested donation is $20 to benefit TAPS. Donations are not mandatory but 100% of the funds will be given to TAPS, and every little bit helps. More workout details are below, and we’ll be sure to clarify the rules during class. TAPS volunteers will be on hand to show their support for you all, discuss what their organization does, and answer any questions you may have. This is also a great opportunity to introduce new family and friends to CrossFit. Please take the opportunity to sign yourself and your guests in (if possible) to help us with planning the size of each session. If you’re not able to, no worries, but please arrive 5-10 minutes early so newbies can fill out the necessary paperwork without holding up the class. Hope to see you in the gym this morning!
