Hero WOD for a Cause

April 4, 2014

Screen Shot 2014-04-04 at 8.46.31 AM

Join us on Saturday, April 26th for a donation-based WOD to benefit the Central Post Gym on Fort Sam.  There are a number of servicemen and women who independently do CrossFit at the Central Post Gym, but they are in desperate need of equipment.  Every bit of your $10 to $20 donation will go towards purchasing equipment for these men and women.  There is no pre-registration for the WOD–just show up at 7:30am on the 26th and we’ll get you registered and assigned to a heat.  Everyone’s welcome, so please feel free to share this event with your friends at other gyms here in San Antonio.
