CrossFit Boxes Hold Challenge to Save Lives!

Tennessee Valley

November 13, 2013
 

 

 

Middle Tennessee CrossFit boxes and The American Red Cross Tennessee Valley Blood Services Region are joining forces for a competition to help save lives and see which CrossFit gym is the fittest!

All CrossFit Members at participating gyms are challenged to donate blood December 20th – January 5th. If you are unable to donate blood, you are welcome to recruit someone to donate in your honor. Your donation will serve as your entry fee to join a region-wide competition on January 11, 2014.*

The winning gym will receive a Model D Rower generously provided by Concept2!!

 

 

 

This partnership is the first of its kind and is aimed to benefit the American Red Cross during a time when blood donations are most needed. “Historically, during the winter months of November, December and January, fewer donors make the time to give blood due to competing seasonal activities, celebrations and holiday shopping,” said Tim Ryerson, CEO of the Red Cross Tennessee Valley Blood Services Region. “By doing something that doesn’t cost a thing, you can give an amazing gift – you can offer hope to a patient in need.”
