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 $21,000 for the Brooklyn Community Foundation (BCF), a local organization dedicated to improving the lives of people in Brooklyn by strengthening communities through local giving, grant-making, and community service. This year, we’ll be partnering with BCF again and hope to surpass last year’s donation numbers. WHEN IS FIGHT GONE BAD? Saturday, October 20th, 2018. The first heat begins at 9am. WHAT IS FIGHT GONE BAD? 3 Rounds, as Many Reps as Possible, of: Wall Balls, 20lb, 10ft / 14lb, 9ft Sumo Deadlift High-Pulls, 75/55 lb Box Jumps, 20″ box Push-presses, 75/55 lb Row In this workout, you move from each of 5 stations after a minute. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. When the announcer calls “Rotate,” athletes must move to next station immediately. Each of the three rounds is five minutes, followed by a one-minute rest. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point. WHY ARE WE FUNDRAISING? In the past, our annual FGB fundraiser has been a great way to bring our community together to support great charities—and we chose to support the Brooklyn Community Foundation because Brooklyn has been exceptionally good to us and we want to help give back to the community that CFSBK is proud to call home. If you’re not familiar with BCF, make sure you visit their website to check them out. Or if you’re busy, at least check out their list of Grantees; we’re sure you’ll find one or two not far from you. Since 2012, we’ve raised a total of around $190,000 for BCF. Help us reach $200,000 this year! WILL THERE BE A FUNDRAISING MINIMUM? While encourage everyone to go hard on fundraising, there is no minimum to participate. As in years past, there will be some sweet prizes awarded to the top individual fundraisers!
