A few months back I wrote an article about planning and running a successful event. The article discussed a lot of what I have learned over the years, good and bad. Whenever you think you know it all, reality comes up and takes a big bite out of your butt. Yesterday I learned something new, something that will affect any event I plan that has anything to do with charities.
As of this writing I have begun the initial stages of planning a small fitness event and it seems it may come to an end before it begins.
I waited to write this post until most of you got paid. That’s right I’m asking for cash, but not for me, for kids. If your involved with CrossFit, you already know that they are having a worldwide charity event on June 9th to benefit St. Judes Children’s research hospital (More Info).
The other day while doing some shopping at the commissary on Edwards AFB, I glanced at my phone while pushing a cart in the vegetable isle. I caught a post on Facebook, which detailed a lawsuit between the Sportsgrants (Fight Gone Bad) folks and CrossFit. I read the entire lawsuit while my wife shopped and when finished, instantly formulated my own opinion (of course).
