Wipe Out Cancer!

Onsite Competition for Teams

Event description

Let's Wipe Out Cancer!

CrossFit Rising Wave is proud to host the first ever "Wipe Out Cancer!" competition, benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).

LLS is the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. The LLS mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services.

To date, TNT has been powered by more than 650,000 volunteer athletes who have raised over $1 billion in the fight against blood cancers. And these dollars are truly working to change the face of cancer treatment and research. Since 2017, LLS helped advance 45 of the 51 blood cancer treatment options approved by the FDA. Further, over 40% of all new cancer therapies approved by the FDA were first approved for blood cancer, so our LLS research is extending into numerous forms of cancer and other diseases as well.

One of our Rising Wave members, Lynne Baczynski, will be running the Boston Marathon on April 20, 2020 with a personal goal of raising $50,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. You can read her story on her fundraising page by clicking on the "Donation Link" button.

We hope that you will come out and support this great cause, rock out with DJ Sly, and get your fitness on to help us Wipe Out Cancer!

***100% of the proceeds of this competition will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society***
