On April 22, 2017, Team Walk n’ Roll of Relay for Life of Loudoun County, together with CrossFit Sterling, will host its first ‘CrossFit for a Cure’ Charity WOD fundraiser, with all proceeds going to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.

Relay for Life (RFL) is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society (ACS) that raises over 40% of the funding for ACS research, education, prevention, advocacy and patient services. RFL is a team fundraising event held over 6-24 hours on a track to remember loved ones lost, honor survivors of all cancers, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society make a global impact on cancer. Each team is asked to have a member on the track at all times to signify that cancer never sleeps. Cancer patients don’t stop because they’re tired, and for one night, neither do we.

‘CrossFit for a Cure’ will be a three-part workout, named after three people close to the organizer: “Alison Fights Back”, followed by “Tommy’s Tribute” and ending with “Gill’s Three Little Birds.” The workout was created to be scalable for any ability, so that everyone can come out to participate, in either the Rx division, Scaled division (beginners welcome!), or Survivor/Caregiver division. Stay tuned here for a complete workout description to be released as the event gets closer!
