On Saturday, April 21st, we will be saying, "See You Soon" to one of our original members, Joel, as he embarks on an INSANE journey for the next few months.
Joel is hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mexican border to the Canadian border in honor of his friend Katie who lost her life to Cystic Fibrosis, and his cousin Nina, who is currently fighting it. He wants to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and his goal is $2 per mile. He will keep a video log of his journey along the way so we can keep in touch and see how he is doing. The entire trail is 2600 miles and he anticipates that it will take him 6 months to complete.
He and I have created a "Hero" work out in honor of his friend Katie so please, come one, come all up to the Falls on SATURDAY, APRIL 21st, to do this work out with us and donate some money to the foundation if you can. All classes will be running the work out, and we will have Open Gym on Sunday open so you can do it then. If you cannot make either of those days, but would like to do the work out, ask me and ill give it to you...it'll only cost you a small donation!
If you cannot make it, there will be a collection envelope at the whiteboard that we will give to Joel before he leaves.
Episode 23 of the podcast has a full interview with Joel and his explanation of the journey and why. Check it out!
