Well Ladies and Gentlemen, it is that time of the year again. The time when as a gym, we all come together and raise money for a great cause. It is time for Dogtown’s Second Annual Crush Cancer Event!!!
First things first, for the newer members, a little history about DogTown and our involvement in raising money for cancer charities. In 2009 we participated (as CrossFit Culver City) in Fight Gone Bad IV; I wanted to get involved, so I pushed…hard, and you guys responded overwhelmingly. For a small new gym, we raised over 50,000, and tied world wide as the number one fundraiser. We followed up in 2010, after just opening DogTown, with another stellar effort at Fight Gone Bad V, raising over 60,000 dollars making us the highest grossing gym in the region, and second highest grossing worldwide. Last year we decided to create our own event, and Dogtown’s Crush Cancer was born. For an inaugural event, it was a smashing success! We raised 60,000 for Stand Up To Cancer, and had an amazing workout and event. This year we hope to out do last years efforts, we are bigger, better and more experienced so get ready!! There is a legacy here at DogTown of going all out when it comes to this. You push yourselves every day in your workout efforts and this requires no less effort. You will need to be relentless in your efforts, and when you want to quit, you will have to find it within yourselves to push even harder. It’s how we workout, and how we fundraise, but first…

Join Team DogTown, and create your own fundraising page. Then simply, share that link with as many people as you can. Every cent counts, no amount is too small. Share it every day. We have set a goal of 100,000 this year. If every member of DogTown raised just 1000, we would be more than double that. Everyone needs to come though to make this goal. The rest of the event is still solidifying as we work to secure a location, but we are looking at the end of October, so no time to waste.Hopefully there will be a few other gyms joining in on the fun with us; the more the merrier I always say What is the workout you ask…
3 rounds with 1 minute rest between rounds
1 minute at each station
Shoulder to Overhead (press, push press, jerk)
It sucks, trust me, but then again having cancer sucks more (again trust me, more on this in the next installment).
