CrossFit For Hope – 6/9/12

The original Fight Gone Bad event has been upgraded this year.  It has a new name, new date, and a new WOD all for an unbelievable cause.  CrossFit is teaming up with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to combat child cancer.   To get involved as a participant by clicking the images below to Join Team CrossFit Garland and to register for the actual event.

and then

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital opened in 1962 and was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas. Its mission is to find cures for children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay.  In the U.S., in children, more than 18,000 cases of cancer are diagnosed each year. Child cancer survival rates have increased from less than 20% when St. Jude opened to almost 80% today.  Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common childhood cancer. ALL has seen an impressive improvement in the five-year survival rate from 4% when St. Jude opened to 94% today.

On June 9th, CrossFit Garland will host CrossFit for Hope with 10 other CrossFit Affiliates.
