Thank you to everyone who supported Girls Gone Rx and BAM in any way last weekend, from the T2 members who did extra WODs by cleaning and painting in preparation, the volunteers who helped keep everyone else on schedule, judge, move equipment, kept the toilets supplied with TP, emptied the bins, to the supporters, cheerleaders and of course, the competitors who came and left it all on the floor. Congratulations to the winners, the highest fundraiser and thanks to all who donated. The event raised over $6,000 to go towards finding a cure for breast cancer #competeforacure #brightpink

CrossFit Team Series : Registration is Open

The series runs from 19 September, when the first round of workouts will be announced, until 1 October when your last results submission is due. 

It is teams of 2 – male, female, mixed, 14-17 yr and 35+ masters, and as far as I can see, there is an Rx division as well as a scaled division. If you are interested, speak with Brad and read more about it on the CrossFit Games website.

Lurong Challenge Championship : Last chance to sign up. Starts  Monday, 17 September. T2’s go-to guy is Coach Matt Erisey. It really is a great way to get you energized for the Fall and ready to face whatever Mother Nature might send our way. Lots of support and encouragement. Even if you just want to modify your eating habits just a little, this is a great way to start. Weights and measurements will be taken Monday morning when Anna is in and Monday evening when Matt is coaching. And the Challenge workouts will take place on Saturdays @ 8:00am before the Community Class.

*Outside The Box:

*Congratulations to Jen Hinds and her team from work on their completion of the Tough Mudder last weekend. In the rain. Judging from the pictures, the event lived up to its name; it was exceedingly muddy. Which made it tougher.

 

*If you enjoyed watching and cheering on the ladies at the GGRX & BAM event last weekend, Matt Miller and SPM would love to hear you cheering for them when they compete at the 2018 Arsenal Throwdown : Saturday, 22 September, Butler Street, Pittsburgh.  https://www.facebook.com/events/199341144035241/

At two months old Issac was diagnosed with Tuberous Sclerosis (TSC), which is a disease that causes benign tumors to grow on major organs. TSC is the same pathway affecting more than a dozen diseases & disorders including autism and epilepsy. There is no cure for this disease but advancements are being made each year.  By raising awareness we are one step closer to a cure or better medical treatments.  Please consider joining our fight as a walker/runner on September 29th or by making a secure donation. 

Thank you for your time/consideration!

The event: Saturday 29 September North Park Harmar Pavilion
