CrossFit California City Teens need your Support!!!! PLEASE READ!

I've been reluctant to post here, out of the fear of being seen as a "spammer"... but hopefully my genuine plea for support will be well-received.

Tonight, 15 teenagers in my summer camp program will be running a total of 100 kilometers as an awareness fundraiser for "The Disposable Heroes Project." If you have not seen Brad McKee's journal article, when he ran 100 miles to kick off his charity, you're missing a good one. (WFS) Part One of 4... check it out.

The charity is setup to help the wounded veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan, and the families of those that did not make it home. It's truly and honorable cause. Brad gives 100% to the charity.

Anyway, these kids have been training hard with me for 9 weeks, and if you follow my Facebook page, you've seen them working hard. So far we've raised around $2k from online donations, a car wash, a big recycling drive, and some cash donations.

I'd really love to bump this number up TODAY, to show these kids what the CrossFit community is all about.

So I'm challenging you to find $5 you can spare, $10, $20, whatever you can give, and donate to our event. Please go to (WFS) http://www.thedisposableheroesproject.com/merchandise and find the "100K, one night, one cause" link, and donate TODAY.

Thank you all for listening.

Thank you all for reading our post, and for the donations we received today. Here is a link to a quick upload of photos from one camera on Facebook.

The kids were amazingly inspirational, and made this coach proud.
