As we've been sharing all week, today's the day that TCF will do the CrossFit For Hope WOD. This is part of a huge fundraising effort on behalf of the entire CrossFit community to raise money for the St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. The mission of St. Jude's is to find cures for children with cancer and other deadly diseases through research and treatment. It is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance.
To show our supoprt for CrossFit for Hope, we are asking all TCF athletes to donate a minimum of $10 to the cause. To make your donation, click here. This will take you directly to the Triangle CrossFit donation page where you can contribute directly to our team fundraising account. Our affiliate goal isn't extravagent and easily surpassable if everyone makes a donation. Please, give hope.
WOD times today are 6:00 AM, 8:30 AM, 4:30 PM, and 5:30 PM. We will host a special parent/child TCF Kids class tonight at 6:30 PM for any family interested in doing the workout together.
Workout of the Day - “Hope”
Three rounds of:
Power snatch (75, 55)
Box jump, (24, 20)
Thruster (75, 55)
Chest to bar Pull-ups
"Hope" has the same format as Fight Gone Bad. You move from each of five stations after a minute. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of "rotate," the athlete moves immediately to next station. One point is given for each rep. Final score is overall reps.
