One of the best parts of owning a CrossFit gym is the people we get to meet along the way, many of whom become fast friends, and are considered part of our family. We are lucky to have met so many amazing people, from all walks of life–people with a common interest in achieving goals and leading a healthier way of life.
One of our members, Miss Katie Gums, is one of those people who come into your life and inspire you to be the best you can be in all things, including the very tiny details that most of us don’t even notice. She emphasizes living in the moment, cherishing the NOW, no matter how stressful or happy, unnerving or exciting… because all you have is the NOW, and by George, you might as well enjoy it, ‘cuz that’s where you are!
So, it is with great joy in our hearts that we support Katie on her next amazing adventure–one of community and giving to those who need it most. Katie is travelling to Peru in about a month to bring Christmas to terminally ill children in Peru, and she is raising money to bring presents and PARTY to these wonderful gifts the world won’t have for much longer. She is choosing this adventure to celebrate her own 30 years of life. She’s asking 30 for 30–$30 dollars from 30 people (or whatever you can spare to help).
We are honored to support Katie with her endeavors and send her our love and light to share with these loving children and their families who are facing such a heart-wrenching ordeal. Thank you Katie, for giving us this opportunity to make a difference, and for choosing our gym… our family.
