Kudos for the first River Ruckus:

“CF Pisgah…you set a very high bar! First class from beginning to end. All the hard work paid off and you produced a truly exceptional event this weekend. Proud to have been a competitor and a volunteer. Already looking forward to next year!”

“CF Pisgah, What a great job hosting this event. Well-organized, on-time. AND you even brought GREAT weather. Good job to you all!!”

“I had a blast helping out over the weekend. You guys should be commended. I have been involved with / put on big events like that and know how much planning is involved. I think it was very efficient, safe, and the athletes had a lot of fun. The locations were great, plenty of water available, good vendors, plenty of equipment, and a good number of volunteers. Looking forward to helping out again next year!”

“I just wanted to tell you how awesome I thought the event was this weekend. I was so impressed with the athletes and the turnout!”

WHOLE LIFE CHALLENGE!! Register today through September 6th


The WLC is different from other challenges; it is not designed for perfection. It is designed to create awareness. The WLC isn’t as much about the specifics (although there are rules to follow), as much as it is about how people make health and fitness work in their daily life. It is training for behavior much more than it is a simple tracking tool or leaderboard.

The discounted price of the WLC is $44 when you register using the CFA Community Discount Link:  

Please contact Angela ( if you have any questions. She will be announcing the WLC CFA Workout soon as well as holding informational events here at CFA.
