With the Games Season upon us and the first Open workout being announced this week, it’s time to talk about Fury’s next big event! On Saturday March 24th, Fury will host the final Open workout and follow it with a fundraiser similar to last year but this time we are pulling for Dominic!
Dominic Peranzi is a 13 year old boy who has recently been diagnosed with Germ Cell Cancer and has a long and tough road ahead of him. His parents, Jana and Paul Peranzi, are members of CrossFit Now, our good friends from Tucson. We want to help Dom and his family raise money to help alleviate the cost of Dominic’s medical procedures that are sure to mount in the tens of thousands of dollars.
Our goal for this fundraiser is to raise as much money from as many affiliates all over Arizona! Let’s show just how great our CrossFit commmunity is by literally PULLING together! We will host a Tug of War tournament following the final Open WOD and we are asking for $5,000 “buy-in” from each affiliate to enter. With over 30 Affiliates in the Phoenix Metro area alone just imagine how much we could help this family. Last year Fury raised over $12,000 for Zane alone so $5000 per gym should be no problem and easily exceeded!!!
More details will follow about the Tug of War tournament but for now-we would love participation from as many affiliates as possible. We hope that local affiliates plan on coming out to compete in the final Open wod and will stick around and join us for some more laid-back, friendly competition and of course good food and drink to follow!
