Last year, the Mid-Atlantic Affiliates came together to do HOPE on the mall to benefit St. Jude’s. This year it’s happening again but bigger and better!!!
This year, CrossFit Annapolis and our sister facilities – CrossFit BWI and CrossFit Syndicate, are ALL participating with the other Mid-Atlantic Affiliates to participate in the CrossFit for Cures aka Hope. This will be an opportunity to build community within the gym, with our system gyms, and our fellow local CrossFit affiliates. Last year the event brought about names such as Christy Phillips, Christmas Abbott, Neal Maddox, Julie Foucher, Gretchen Kittelberger, Ben Smith and many other top tier CrossFit Athletes (aka CrossFit Celebrities). The gym will be CLOSED on the day of the event and we will be venturing into the heart of the Nation’s Capital to participate on the mall in this event. In it’s inaugural year, this event brought together 434 CrossFit athletes and raised approximately $70K to be donated to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
