CROSSFIT CADRE PRESENTS 3RD ANNUAL ANNE’S ARMY WORK OUT DAY
TO BATTLE BREAST CANCER
ORRVILLE, Ohio – Crossfit Cadre located at 5170 Hudson Drive, Hudson, Ohio will hold the 3rd Annual Anne’s Army Work Out Day at 7:00 am Saturday, January 19, 2013 to benefit the Anne M. Wolf Foundation. The Crossfit community will once again contribute to this cause in honor of Anne Wolf, a young woman (29) who lost her battle with breast cancer. Since 2011, the Foundation has donated $52,000 to support the Anne M. Wolf Fund for Breast Cancer Research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. Every dollar raised for the Foundation goes directly to support breast cancer research.
Our mission is to support scientists and researchers in their effort to find a cure and to raise awareness about breast cancer. Crossfit Cadre has designed a special “Workout Of the Day” (WOD) in honor of Anne. We are inviting athletes to register a team of three to compete in a 25 minute As Many Reps As Possible (AMRAP). The workout will be scalable for everyone from a first timer to the extreme athlete.
To register, please visit the Foundation website at www.annesarmy.org. All participants and spectators 12 years and older are welcome. Early team registration (as of the end of day January 2nd) is $100, includes 3 event t-shirts. Registration will remain open and is available on event day for no extra charge. Event t-shirts will be available for an additional $5.00, while supplies last. To register please visit www.annesarmy.org and follow the “Register for the Anne’s Army WOD” link; provide your team’s information and registration fee. You will also find additional event information, pledge forms, and the event day waivers.
Approximately 40,000 women will die of breast cancer in the U.S. this year. Excluding skin cancer, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer among U.S. women. Triple Negative Breast Cancer (of which Anne was diagnosed) is particularly aggressive and more likely to recur and spread throughout the body. It generally affects young women and is the hardest type of breast cancer to treat as there are not many drugs available.
