CFF members and power couple Shannon McGurrin and Shawn Hooley had e-mailed me about an upcoming throwdown happening in Rhode Island during the first weekend of September. The event is a one-day competition and has both RX and scaled divisions so it is accessible to anyone! We already have three Fenway teams to represent us and would love to have a big group of spectators and competitors. Despite the name you do not have to be a couple to compete, case and point: Eric and I are a team. Here are the details and we hope a lot of you guys will come join us!
CFF Teams (so far)
Shawn & Shannon
Andrea & Tyler Cone (The HandiCones)
Mandy Brown & Eric Siegel (Booty & the Beard)

PR for Pat: On Saturday, August 2nd we’ll be doing Pat’s WOD. Our friend Pat has a long, tough road ahead of him, and needs our help. You can read his story here. Pat has already undergone surgery that has taken roughly 70% of his tongue, as well as lymph nodes and glands. He will require therapy to learn to talk and swallow again, and he faces days upon days of chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Pat has incredible determination, and with the help of so many that care about him from the CrossFit community here in Boston he will fight on. Please donate here, mark your calendar for Saturday, August 2nd and join us to PR for Pat.
