Moment of Awesomeness: 9/27/11

Many of you know I participated in a Fund-Raiser last weekend called Fight Gone Bad 6. On my personal Fund-Raising page, I wrote this:

“Every single year, through CrossFit, I become more and more appreciative for the Men and Women who fight for our freedoms every day. Being able to give back to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation and Camp Patriot, makes me feel like I can add some true value and show my thanks for their service.
Finally, the Infant Swimming Resource/CrossFit Kids Initiative if something that is very near and dear to my heart, as I have worked with coaching children in one way or another for over 14 years.
Please donate if you can. Every cent helps.
Thank you.”

I truly meant every word of what I wrote. With the help of some of you, I was able to raise $415 for some amazing causes. Next year, I will work even harder to increase that amount. The video below, from Alamo CrossFit, will show you part of my reason why. It is, hands down, my favorite Fight Gone Bad video I’ve seen yet.

Thank you to the men and women out there who are at home and abroad protecting us. And to those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf… God Bless, and Godspeed. You will not be forgotten.

Finally, thank you once again to those of you who were able to donate. I truly appreciate your support.
