Albany CrossFit Wins Competition By Raising $32,579 For St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
Date:6/29/2012

Albany, NY (PRWEB) June 29, 2012

Albany CrossFit and CrossFit Clifton Park have something special to celebrate this July 4th Weekend: it raised $32,579 in the CrossFit for Hope fundraising event on June 9, 2012 to benefit St. Jude Chidren’s Research Hospital.

The gym won a fundraising competition among CrossFit affiliates worldwide. Its members will watch the Crossfit Games from a VIP box at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California from July 13-15.

"But the real winners are the kids," said Jason Ackerman, owner of Albany CrossFit and CrossFit Clifton Park.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital opened in 1962 and was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas. Its mission is to find cures for children with cancer and other deadly diseases through research and treatment. No family ever pays for the treatment their children receive at St. Jude's. In all, CrossFit affiliates raised more than $1.5 million.

"I've never been more proud of our community," said Jason Ackerman, owner of CrossFit Albany and CrossFit Clifton Park. "More than 200 of our members participated in some way in many events over many weeks, including workouts, online auctions, a talent show, and a car wash. Our members are very community-minded. We've participated in many fundraising events in the past, but never anything like this. It was special."

The main fundraising technique involved participants soliciting pledges for completing the CrossFit for Hope workout on June 9, as seen in this video.'/>"/>
