A very big thank you to all of the athletes who participated in Sunday’s fundraiser. An even bigger thank you to everyone who has donated to Emily Hopkins and “Speak Up and Light Bangladesh.
Emily wanted to pass this message along to those who have helped her along the way…
Wow, guys! THANK YOU to everyone who came out and made "Fight Gone Bangladesh" a HUGE success! Because of your support, we raised $700 through the workout for our trip!!
And even if you couldn't make it, many of you contacted me to let me know that you donated to our IndieGoGo page. All of your contributions have been amazing and humbling. Personally, I believe that living LifeasRX means to live not for yourself, but to give to those who haven't been given the comfort of living that we as Americans enjoy and often take for granted.
If you were there yesterday, you heard me say that one of the reasons I love Crossfit (and especially DogTown) as a community is that everyone always seems willing to look outside themselves and help others where it's needed. You guys showed that in a BIG way regarding my trip to Bangladesh to serve these girls who otherwise would be forced into prostitution, and I can't thank you enough for helping to make that a reality. If that's not living LifeasRX, I don't know what is!
A HUGE thank-you to LifeasRX, SFH and Lululemon for contributing product and gift cards to our prize packs. And another huge thank-you to Liz Burns and DogTown CrossFit for making this fundraiser WOD possible!
