Fight Gone Bad Votes!!!!

Every year, CrossFit does a fundraiser called Fight Gone Bad.  If you are an avid CrossFitter, you know what this is.  If you are new to CrossFit, or not a CrossFitter at all, allow me to explain.  It is 15 minute of pure suck.  The end.  So why do we do it then? We do it because it's a fundraiser and we use it to raise money for different organizations.  For the past few years, the main recipient of these funds has been Wounded Warrior Project.  They're a great organization, but this year CrossFit has decided to mix it up a bit.  This year they are supporting the Special Operators Foundation.  They are also supporting CrossFit Kids.  The third donor spot however is a big question mark.  Right now, they are allowing people to nominate a worthy cause.  Then folks can vote for the cause that they want to receive the third slot.  I nominated Operation Ward 57 as one of the possible organizations for this third slot.  I know it is a long shot because let's face it, our organization is very, very small, but I had to give it a try.  So, I'm putting up this post and hoping that perhaps some of my loyal followers will go to the link and vote for Operation Ward 57. It would be nice to see the money go to an organization where you KNOW it is going directly to people.  Our organization is very small, and is strictly volunteer.  We're not a WWP who has full time staff with salaries, etc.  We put everything back into the patients on 57.  When the BRAC closure occurs, we will be moving WITH the patients over to Bethesda so that we can continue to do the work we have been doing.  So, if you have 3 minutes, click this link.  Then click where it shows the number of votes.  It will ask you to login with your Facebook ID.  Then reclick that same little box and the vote number should go up by 1.  That's it.  That's all it takes.  Please support me and this great cause.  You can only vote 1 time.  Voting closes on July 22.  Nominations for new organizations close on the 15th.  Let's at least give Leukemia/Lymphoma Society a run for their money!
