Carin Moore brought this great cause to our attention. A member of her brother-in-law’s CrossFit gym is performing a ride across America, staying at CrossFit gyms along the way. The purpose to raise money and awareness for two members at 12:11 CrossFit – . This is an amazing testament to the community the CrossFit creates. From the website:
The Ride is a story of a man who wanted to help. A hard-working man from a small town in Kansas who, in an unlikely way, became connected to a 61 year old grandmother and a 1.5 year old little boy. The grandmother, Damaris, is battling non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and the little boy, Benedict, is fighting Retinoblastoma and 13q deletion syndrome. What’s the connection between these 3 people? CrossFit, and more specifically, the community of 12:11 CrossFit in Beloit, Kansas.
Benedict is Carin’s nephew, and she is happy to report that he is a “happy, tough, and cuddly baby boy.” Check out the website here and watch the video below. Please do what you can to support.
