The First United for Youth - In the Books

Every one of us has a CrossFit story --- how you first found the sport, the incredible community you’ve created, the fun you’ve had, the goals you’ve set and surpassed.

The variables differ but the result is often the same; a life-changing experience that has transformed your fitness and your entire approach to living.

The Westside Athletes Association is dedicated to giving that gift of CrossFit to teens in need.

Saturday, we were overwhelmed (and overjoyed) by the turnout for our very first fundraiser, United for Youth. Over 35 athletes registered to compete in Fight Gone Bad in an action-packed, high energy day at United Barbell.

The ladies were led by Hayley Beauchamp (319), Ashley Seashore (301) and Loryn Ferrari (295), while the top men’s finishers were Steve Love (338), Rich Stone (284) and Shamus Noonan (280). Congrats to all the top athletes!

Great job to all the competing athletes!

Great job to all the competing athletes!

Between the three gyms participating, we raised 11,705.  United barbell represented over half of the fundraising efforts at 6,275!  The biggest fundraiser for the day was Dave H., raising $1,010!

This blog post is just one way small way to say thank you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to our incredibly generous sponsors and donors, our loved ones that came to spectate, the athletes who competed, and everyone who helped make this special day a reality.
