WOD Saturday, July 6th

Kief and I feel so fortunate to be able to share our love for health and fitness with our members, friends, family and supporters.  We are are proud to say that we are the most fortunate box in Madison and that is because of all of YOU!  We boast to friends outside the gym, family, potential new members and anyone who will listen that CrossFit Connex is the greatest community of athletes anywhere – and we mean it.  Connex is comprised of athletes who attack every challenge with vigor.  We watch you day in and day out give your all to every aspect of what Connex stands for.  Connex has come together and done some amazing things without thought for ourselves, the pain, or the inconvenience or anything else. Amazing.  It is time for Connex to come together the same way we do in the box, to help the community that we live.  Let us share our gratitude by giving back to our community. We know that Connex has the power to make changes in our community because we are a box full of athletes who are willing to step up for causes, whether they involve pure giving or pure performance.

Every month Connex will pick one organization to give back to.  There are so many ways that Connex can get involved in charitable work, and we will be starting with donating money raised to CrossFit for Hope. Every Saturday in June, we will ask you to being in some change that you may have in your car, or that has collected on your nightstand, and donate this money to CrossFit for Hope.  The money raised for CrossFit for Hope goes to helping find cures for childhood catastrophic diseases. One of it’s main beneficiaries is St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

We are excited for Connex to start giving back. If you have any suggestions for future months, please let us know. We would love to get feedback and ideas from all of you!

By the way we collected 45 dollars!
