There is no better way to show our warriors that No One Fights Alone than to go to battle with them. Whether you belong to a gym who is hosting or you want to support our warriors on your own, anyone can sign up for The Battle Series.The Battle Series is an annual 4 week online competition hosted each November. Participants will complete 1 workout a week over 4 weeks, much like the CrossFit Open. There will be various divisions to include RX, Scaled and Masters to ensure everyone can go to battle. CrossFit Asheville will be participating in Everyday Warrior starting on November 8.
CrossFit Asheville wants to support June and Neil’s nephew during his battle with cancer. Participants of the Battle Series are encouraged to wear a “TEAM SCOTT” t-shirt. June has written about Scott’s story below:
My nephew, Scott, 43 is married to Amber and they have 2 amazing children, a daughter 12, and a son, 8. Previously, Scott was a Sergeant at a Correctional Facility in northern New York, although he has had to resign his position due to ongoing cancer treatments.
Over two years ago doctors discovered a tumor surrounding his femoral artery and after an 11 hour surgery he began chemo and radiation treatments. He was cancer free for a while, but unfortunately, in August, his doctors found cancer cells in his lungs and the other leg. He is now being treated at the Dana Farber Institute in Boston, Massachusetts and will undergo another surgery in November. In between his present chemo and radiation rounds, he continues to run and workout (sounds like an everyday warrior, right?). Also, Scott is a veteran of the Marine Corps!
Or they can be ordered directly at Crossfit Asheville. There is a deadline of October 19th for ordering. Once the shirts arrive, they can be worn to the gym on Saturday November 8th, 15th, and 22nd where photos will be taken to show Scott and his family our support.
Thank you in advance,
Everyday Warrior (EW) foundation and its first fundraising event The Battle Series. Its founder Brittany Gill, a trainer at CFS, was diagnosed with cervical cancer in November 2013. Brittany started EW during her journey through chemo treatments with the intent to benefit others- specifically CrossFitters- during their battle with cancer. We lost Brittany this past Sunday, September 28, 2014, but we are continuing her quest and carrying on her passion for this cause. Please watch this video, register for The Battle Series, share with your members, and help us fulfill the vision Brittany had for Everyday Warrior and the CrossFit community
