Swing and Snatch for Juvenile Diabetes




What do these two images have in common? Raising money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. CrossFit Philly is again participating in the annual JDRF Walk at the end of October.

We will be having a charity fundraiser, based around kettlebell swings and kettlebell snatches, the entire week of October 8th-12th. All you need to do is schedule a time to come in to CrossFit Philly and perform as many kettlebell snatches or kettlebell swings as you can in 10 minutes.

Get friends, family, and co-workers to sponser you, with either a flat donation or a pledge per kettlebell snatch or kettlebell swing. You'll have a 10 minute time frame to perform as many reps as you can, switching hands as often as you like, and resting as often as you like. We'll give you your rep count and the money goes directly to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Date: The Week of October 8th - October 12th.

Time: Any time you schedule as CrossFit Philly


Benefits: The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

Basically, you're getting a free workout and helping out a charity. You can pick up your pledge forms at CrossFit Philly or make one your own. Groups of people are more than welcome to come in at one time as well!


And as always feel free join our walking team this year, all are welcome, family, friends, puppies. Last year someone even brought their pig!

Count me in. I am guessing 200 snatches per arm in 10 mins. 32KG.

Thanks.

That is easy. Preston and Walker will be so jealous watching me smoke thru that workout.

Sam - Does that mean that Eric & I will actually be doing the workout while you SMOKE? Cause that's about the only way you'll get through it, by watching us...
