This past Saturday, 42 athletes participated in WAA's United for Youth - Fight Gone Bad fundraiser! Plenty of you PR'd your FGB score, while some of you got your first taste of it. Despite the pain faces and sweat puddles, I believe I can speak for everyone when I say we all had an excellent time!
Sean and Connor set some early scores to beat, followed a little later by Steven M. and drop-in Josie. But at the end of the day it was a familiar face on top of the podium! Hayley edged out Loryn in a power-packed heat, 373 to 370. And in the last heat of the day, Joe took 3rd place with a score of 366. Congratulations to ALL our athletes for their efforts in this grueling workout.
WAA would like to offer our sincerest thanks to all who participated, watched, donated, and supported the event. Also a big shout out to our sponsors, who helped us make the event memorable for everyone.
For those who missed it, here's a link to all the event photos:
We raised $1500 on the day for United for Youth - WAA's fundraiser to bring a functional fitness training course to 20 P.E. teachers in the San Francisco Unified School District on April 5-6. That brings the total thus far to $10,161, just $2,000 away from our goal of $12k!
While FGB has now come and gone, the United for Youth fundraiser continues until April 4th. We have some really fantastic gift packages for our top 3 fundraisers (WAA board members not included).
