ABOUT THE EVENT
Vigor CrossFit is holding a 4 person team competition (2 men/2 women) for the benefit of one of our extended family members!
The cost is $140 per team and for that price you will receive 5 workouts. This will be an “open” competition with no “scaled” or “Rx” divisions, it is purely a forum for fun and coming together to help someone in dire need. We will have a scoring system to determine “winners” but there will not be any prizes.
About the benefector:
Eric Swiger (whose nickname is Squirrel) was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. He is 37 years old. Most people who have it do very well, because the cancer is usually found early and the treatments work. His wasn’t caught or diagnosed for 5 yrs after he first noticed a small lump on his neck. He has had 3 surgeries & 2 r…adioactive iodine treatments only for the tumors to return. It has spread into his lymph nodes, spine, lungs and is now in constant pain. Doctors have moved past the “cure” phase and into the “extending his remaining time”. With the help of you athletes, we’re going to attempt to make life easier on him. He is still trying to work, even doing double shifts to keep up with his bills. The cost of surgery and ongoing treatment has been a tremendous financial burden for Eric & Libby, so any financial donation is greatly appreciated. We would love to make it so he doesn’t have to work as much or even at all! Thank you to ALL of you for taking the time to read a bit about Eric & why this competition, Squirrel-Aid, is so important. Please register to participate & lets lift heavy for this wonderful cause.
