Adaptive CrossFit, July 29th, 2017
18 people competed in the 1st annual, Around the Clock Fitness, Adaptive Crossfit challenge with the assistance of 31 volunteers. Competitors included amputees, wheelchair bound, the blind, and others that have physical and mental challenges in everyday life.
The Crossfit room was buzzing as attendees cheered on competitors providing ongoing encouragement! The struggles were many, but with sheer dedication and determination everyone persevered and finished the challenge successfully. Medals were awarded at the end.
Closing ceremonies included the presentation of medals to attendees and checks by Mr. Derik Fay, owner and founder, of Around the Clock Fitness. In addition to donations totaling nearly $1200, Mr. Fay presented checks for donations in the amount of $2000 to Center for Independent Living plus another $2000 to I AM ADAPTIVE. He also announced that all Adaptive Crossfit participants were receiving a free 3-month membership & free Adaptive Crossfit classes Wednesday’s from 1-2pm.
Big thanks to all the participants, volunteers, and guests. All of our lives were changed for the better!
