Big thank you to all the athletes and gyms that made it out – Benchmark Strength & Conditioning (Ottawa), Catalyst CrossFit (Sault Ste. Marie), CrossFit Genetic Potential (Manitoulin Island), CrossFit Timmins (Timmons, clearly… haha), Elite training (Espanola), Tidal CrossFit/DownTown Muscles (Toronto) – and to our own members for giving their all and Crushing Extreme!  You guys made it an amazing event and it’s always cool to see the cohesion that people have through CrossFit, despite being from different gyms!

A HUGE thank you goes out to all our sponsors – Again Faster, Flyczek Strength Wraps, Life As Rx, WODGear Clothing, Steven Doni & Family Group, Marc Larochelle, Sam Briggs!, Chris Spealler & CrossFit Park City, Metro on Lasalle, Pillers, Skaters Edge, Mauro Zuliani REMAX, MagnetSigns, Royal Productions, Richard Lemieux Photography!

Another thank you to our Volunteers, who are too numerous to mention individually!  ALSO – a BIG thank you to Coach Lisa for doing such an amazing job organizing this event – Everything looks so smooth and easy during that day of competition, but it ultimately reflects weeks of planning that was mostly done by Lisa.  Thanks Lis!

Finally, the total amount that was raised due to the work and contributions from all of the above, is exactly the amount we were shooting for as a silent goal.  It’s twice as much as last year as well – and this year we raised $4000.00!

Amazing work everyone!  Thank you for all of your hard work!
