Whew, the summer went FAST! Our last update was RIGHT before the Row-Raiser event….. and we KILLED it! We were able to raise almost $8k from our location alone! In the end we had 11 full rowers with teams from CFBN, AF, 5 Alarm, CUE, CrossFit SwampFox, and the PIT. For those of you that could make it, you were able to see the teamwork, spirit, god-awful outfits, and awesome tan lines that went into making the event great. That doesn’t even include the food truck, chair massages, chiropractors and Cory’s magic. It was a great event and we want to thank everyone that made it work. It worked so well in fact, that Illinois Special Olympics has asked CFBN to host a workshop on 9/30 with all the other gyms (owners) that was an official Row-Raiser location. We are really looking forward to working with ISO, Sam and Jennifer Dancer, and the other box owners to make the 2017 the best yet. That being said, the noon on 9/30 will be cancelled and all other classes will run as scheduled.
