The second annual CFR (CrossFit Revelation) Charity Row will be held Saturday, June 16 at Sonny’s Place in Somers, CT from 9am-12pm. Last year our charity was the MS Society and we were able to donate $12,000! CrossFit Revelation has selected Wade’s Army as the charity to row for. Wade’s Army was founded by the Welbourn and DeBruin families to recruit others to use their power for good and bring the fight to pediatric cancer. They are a non-profit bringing the fight against neuroblastoma and remembering Wade DeBruin’s battle with this deadly pediatric cancer. No one at any age deserves to get cancer, but when a cancer targets toddlers, it turns our world inside out. Take a closer look at www.wadesarmy.org.
People can help by joining a team, making a donation, becoming a sponsor or donating a raffle prize. Raffle tickets will be available to purchase throughout the event, with winners being chosen during lunch. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit Donovan Abbe, a 9-year-old from Enfield who is currently battling neuroblastoma. Raffle prizes include Patriots tickets, UConn tickets, a 1-month membership to Romeo Athletics, gift cards and more.
This year’s event will be a marathon row, with teams of 5 or less rowing a total of 26.2 miles. Registration opens at 8am with the row starting at 9am. Each team is responsible for raising a minimum of $500. To watch an interview about the event with Andrew Romeo , owner of Romeo Athletics and Crossfit Revelation visit www.westernmassnews.com.
