United for Youth/FGB - Save the Date!

With today's WOD being "Tabata Fight Gone Bad," we wanted to give you a SAVE THE DATE message for our (almost) annual Fight Gone Bad fundraising event here at UB. 


THE DATE: Saturday, February 11

THE WORKOUT: Fight Gone Bad, of course! 

THE EVENT: We call this event "United for Youth," and it's coming to UB for the second time. In 2014, UB and its extended family raised over $10,000 in support of Westside Athletes Association.

THE CAUSE: WAA is funding a Brand X Method certified training course for high school and middle school teachers in the San Francisco Unified School District.

THE GOAL: By raising $10,000, 20 teachers can attend this training.

THE WHY: Well, it's for the kids (duh).  But also a great way to compete.  Whether to prep for the Open in March, or just experience the adrenaline of a competition, this event is for you.

Plus, there are PRIZES! In 2014, WAA solicited sweet prize packages for the top 3 male and female competitors.

THE WHO: YOU! UBers and non-UB CrossFitters are welcome to participate in the event.

We will announce more details for the fundraiser and the event in the coming weeks.

WAA a not-for-profit organization comprised of members sweating right here alongside you in the United Barbell community including Chris C, Jon S, Jason L, Nikki S, Maria M, Joanna G, and others.  Their mission is to transform the lives of teenagers by making functional fitness programs available in local schools, and supporting healthy lifestyle habits.
