Row for the Red Cross

Tired of the same old workout routine? Sick of running in a circle around an indoor track? Itching for the next marathon? Craving that competetive edge? Well we have the perfect solution for you! Join Team CrossFit Buffalo to compete in the Row for the Red Cross fundraiser!

What is Row for the Red Cross?
Row for the Red Cross is a one-day event, which will be held on Sunday, March 6, 2011. You can stop by Buffalo's CrossFit gym at 3820 Union Road, Cheektowaga NY, 14225, or any CrossFit gym across New York State to row part of or an entire 5K on a Concept2 Rowing machine!  Participatants are asked to seek individual sponsorship for the distance that they choose to row, and all proceeds will benefit your local American Red Cross Chapter!  
Individual Prizes!

•The individual that raises the most money, over $1000, will receive a certificate good for admission to a CrossFit Endurance Trainer certification class, courtesy of CrossFit Endurance.
•The top three fundraising individuals will receive a $50 gift certificate from Ranger Up.
•Any individual that raises over $1000 will receive a certificate for a free CPR/AED class offered by your local New York State Red Cross Chapter.
•All rowers who raise at least $100 will receive an event t-shirt from Ranger Up (pictured above!).
What is a CrossFit gym?
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability, which makes it a perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. They have used the same routines, which dabble in combat, survival and different sports, for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. They scale load and intensity; they don't change programs.

Intimidated? Don't be! The CrossFit gym is a great place for individuals of all levels to come and work out, which is why we here at the Chapter are thankful to have them participating in this great fundraiser.
