On Friday, Aug. 21, participants joined in the fight against cancer at CrossFit Houma’s 2nd annual All Day Strong event benefiting Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC.
More than $3,000 was donated to the Cancer Center through sponsorships, donations and workout participation fees.
“We are very grateful to CrossFit Houma and everyone who participated in the All Day Strong event,” said the Cancer Center’s director, Melanie Guilbeaux. “The funds raised will directly impact our patients, our families and our community.”
Twenty-four different workouts were held in 24 hours – every hour, on the hour – for a pledge per workout. The programming reflected the variety of strength, cardio and body weight exercises that comprise the CrossFit experience. Successfully completing all 24 workouts in 24 hours were Tom Bruger, Brandon Nowak, Alex Positerry, David Smith and Abby Theriot.
“Support from organizations such as CrossFit Houma allows patients to receive the most advanced cancer treatment and compassionate care right here in the local community,” said Guilbeaux. “Thank you to all who took part in this challenging event.”
