Fight Gone Bad is just over a month away (September 17). We currently have seven members on our team and we've raised $45. That means we are slacking!
Sure, this event is a fun/bonding experience between CrossFitters, but it's also a way to give back to our troops. Think about the 26 Navy Seals who just lost their lives. And the others fighting for us each day.
It's simple. You sign up and create your donation page. You then email it to your friends and/or post to your Facebook profile. Get your family, co-workers and friends to chip in.
Raise $150 and you get a FGB6 limited edition t-shirt.

I just got the following message from Sportsgrants, the company who organizes the fundraising for Fight Gone Bad:
Sportsgrants worked most of the year to create a gift to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation that would create 60 full college scholarships for any child of a Special Operations warrior killed in the last ten years. That's an idea.
Last week we lost 30 American servicemen, 17 of them members of SEAL Team Six. We regrouped. We're not putting on a bake sale, or a 5k. We're putting on Fight Gone Bad, and small thinking is for small people, so we told every one of those families that CrossFitters were going to gather together on September 17th and create a fund that will pay for the college education for every child who lost his or her father on that Chinook. That's an idea whose time has come.
