CrossFit Forest has a Team at the Relay For Life held at the Lake Forest Sports Park on July 30 to 31st. CrossFit Forest is also one of the signature sponsors for the event. Relay for life raises funds for the American Cancer Society. As you may have noticed we don't do many fundraiser or charity events. We try to be very careful and deliberate with fundraising and donations. The fight against cancer hits close to home for our community. We also believe there is a cure out there. The Relay for Life is a big event and it is right in our backyard! Being one to not back down from a big challenge I signed us up! We've got this!!!
Here is a quick blurb about Relay For Life:
At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. The funds you raise truly make a difference in the fight against cancer just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year!
Relay For Life teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, park, or fairground. Events are up to 24 hours long, and because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.
So we need your help having at least one person on the course at a time. Given there are over 250 of us I know we are up to the challenge. They even gave us permission to bring some rowers or bikes to use to have it count as having someone continuously on the course.
Here is a link to sign up for a half hour shift, feel free to sign up for more than one shift! Feel free to "volunteer" your friends and family too! Who is brave enough to sign up for the 2am through 4am shifts???

We'll have our CrossFit Forest support tent out there the whole time.
Some of you may have a special person in your life that you want to honor by establishing a personal donation goal for this event and/or otherwise feel inspired to fundraise for this cause. If this is the case, first, right on! We are thrilled that you want to ante up to fight for a cure for cancer! Please click on the link below for information on how to donate/fundraise and join the CrossFit Forest team. Note that you can still sign up to run on the CrossFit Forest team and not establish a personal fundraising goal. You can also just come over that day and cheer us on! If you donate/raise over $100 they give you a T-shirt.
