WOD For FA!
WHEN: TODAY! 9:15am!
WHERE: CrossFit EXP, Leominster
WHAT: Sat morning WOD to fundraise for FA
WHO: All are welcome to join!
Nov 2, in Orlando, FL, friends of the Mullaney family will be cycling in an event called Ride Ataxia. Ride Ataxia was coordinated by FARA (Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance) to help raise funds to assist in the research in finding a cure for Friedreich's Ataxia. FA is a rare, degenerative neuro-muscular disease. As many of you know, 2 of Brenda's 4 children, Kaela & Joey Mullaney have been battling Friedreich's Ataxia for most of their lives. There is currently no treatment for FA but we believe the treatment era for FA is now and we need your help!
We are hoping to do everything we can to assist FARA in funding research to find a cure. TODAY we will be hosting WOD for FA. Donations will be accepted to fundraise for FARA and will go towards the "Mullaney Munchin's" team fundraising goal. We also encourage you all to join in the fun on Friday, October 24 in Leominster at the Elks Lodge at 6:00 pm for a Cureoke event. It will be a night filled with much laughter and we would love to see you all there.
If you are unable to make either event and would like to make a donation in honor of Kaela and Joey, you can donate at THIS LINK. No donation is too small. We greatly appreciate any contribution and thank you in advance for your generosity.
