Fight Gone Bad 5 - Working Out for Wounded Warriors Project

Reposting because I only have 4 more days fundraising!!!!

Fight Gone Bad began as a fundraising event in 2006. From those humble beginnings and with the support of the CrossFit community, we’ve proven what a small, totally committed group of people can accomplish. The first four editions of Fight Gone Bad have raised a combined total of more than $2 million.

Why I'm Doing This: I discovered CrossFit when I was deployed to Balad, Iraq taking care of our wounded in the Air Force Theater Hospital (AFTH). The dedication of our medical team & the courage, strength and resolve of our military inspire me daily. They are the men & women who push me to be a better person and a better airman.

FGB5 takes place on Saturday, September 25, 2010. CrossFit Las Vegas will be setting up in front of the Whole Foods at Town Square on Las Vegas Blvd & Sunset.

In this workout we move from each of five stations after a minute. The event is in the 3 round format with one minute rest between rounds.
The stations for women are:
• Wall-ball: 14 pound ball, 8 ft target. (Reps)
• Sumo deadlift high-pull: 55 pounds (Reps)
• Box Jump: 20? box (Reps)
• Push-press: 55 pounds (Reps)
• Row: calories (Calories)

FGB is my favorite CrossFit Benchmark. My current PR score is 252. My goal for this event will be to score 275....and to raise at least $1000.

  5. Wow, one of my workout buddies from CrossFit Las Vegas just donated $15. Thanks Amanda!!! Love ya....and love working out with you in the mornings.

  6. Maybe this multiple postings on Facebook works? Or was it the begging for just another $10. Regardless, thanks so much David Walker for my next $20. You guys are rocking!

  7. My last beg on Facebook & Twitter. Ryan (from CFLV) won't be there on Saturday so he is one of my $10 supporters (he sponsored a few of us). Big thanks to Hector & Holly who pledged $50 last night! I'm just over $600 now. :)
