Thursday, November 12th, 2015 we will be having our own Wade’s day workout and fundraiser. This will include a workout dedicated to Wade DeBruin and his fight against Neuroblastoma hosted by Power Athlete. Spread the word about brave Wade, enlist in Wade’s Army and our fundraising efforts! Donations go along way, but helping spread the awareness of Neuroblastoma and recruiting more to the cause will help us reach our goal!
At 6pm all of your coaches will be participating in the workout and want as many of you as possible to come and join us. But if you can’t make it at 6, every class will be participating in Wade’s Wod and hope we can get each of you to donate.
