Fight in Fredericton

4th Annual Prostate Cancer Fundraiser
Please make a donation at www.fgb4.org.

There is going to be a fight in downtown Fredericton and everyone is invited.

CrossFit is holding their fourth annual Fight Gone Bad Fundraiser for Prostate Cancer on September 26 at 10am at George Street Middle School. This international fundraiser involves a public workout where proceeds will go towards Prostate Cancer Canada. This year’s goal is to raise more than $1 million between all International Regions.

The workout (named Fight Gone Bad) is three rounds, five minutes each, with a minute rest between each round mimicking the time domain of UFC fights. The rounds consist of five different exercises and your score is based on how many repetitions you can complete. The exercises include Wall Ball, High Pull, Box Jump, Push Press, and Rowing. After finishing the workout, UFC Champion BJ Penn gasped, “It was like a Fight Gone Bad!”

The event is being organized through the collective efforts of the regional CrossFit affiliates that include; CrossFit Bathurst, CrossFit Dieppe, CrossFit Fredericton, CrossFit Halifax, CrossFit Kinetics (located in Halifax), and CrossFit Moncton.

Everyone is encouraged to come by to take part in the workout or make a donation to support the athletes who are raising awareness for this cause. All fitness levels welcome no experience necessary.
