Hope for Kenya! First Fundraiser! Sponsor Me!

Last night I was so excited about my new squat PR that I completely forgot to write about the fundraiser I’m participating in this Saturday! I’ve attended many, but have never had the balls to compete. Well, the time has come, and I’m going to be giving “Hope for Kenya” my all. You can click through there and read about it, if you’d like, because it’s an absolutely great cause. All that being said, it’s also a sponsorship fundraiser! It’s not a “pledge” system, where you promise to give a certain amount per round/mile/etc. You sponsor the athlete but donating money in their name, knowing they’re going to be participating.

So! Loyal readers and fitness buffs alike, I am calling upon you to join me in Crossfit’s Hope for Kenya initiative, and either sign up and participate in the workout, or sponsor me!! 100% of the money goes straight to the foundation. Crossfit HQ doesn’t get any, my box doesn’t get any, I don’t get any. It is all 100% for the cause.¬†AND it’s tax¬†deductible, if you’re into that. You’ll get an email receipt that has all the hairy details for that. I know I am nowhere near raising the insanely awesome amounts that the people in the top 10 are raising, but I would love to be able to get up there. NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL! I would forever be grateful just for SINGLE DOLLAR donations!

The workout:

12-Minute AMRAP of:

  • 50 Air Squats
  • 30 Push-ups
  • 15 Pull-ups

Aka. I’m going to die. But it’s going to be the best death. I am also going to record me doing the WOD, and make a nifty video! I have a number in my head (different than the fundraising goal on my page) and if I hit that amount, I’ll post the video!!! So you get to see me grunt it out, all in the name of Hope for Kenya.

On another note, I hit my school’s gym for a super quick session before class today. I did lots of heaaavy deadlifts, snatch-grip deadlifts, clean and jerks for volume and speed, GHDs, thrusters, and good mornings. Hammies, shoulders, and back! Such a good smash in such a short period of time!
