As you may know, on Saturday, September 30th, I will be participating in the CrossFit “Fight Gone Bad”. It’s one workout, one day, one purpose to benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
Now, by workout, I mean 17 solid minutes of serious work – wall balls, sumo deadlifts, box jumps, push presses and rows. CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.
This workout takes on a more significant meaning for the many men who are fighting in ways far beyond the discomfort of one workout. In addition to training and participating in this event, I’ve decided to challenge myself to raise money for prostate cancer research. I am an “athlete for a cure.”
If you have already made a donation, I can’t thank you enough. But, if you’re still deciding whether you want to support prostate cancer research, consider this: Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in America. One in six American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, making men 35% more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than women are to be diagnosed with breast cancer.
