The Pink Bra Tour will be here two weeks from today. We are 1 of the 10 stops nationwide! All CrossFitters in the area are welcome to participate and be eligible for the prizes as long as they raise/donate $40 for Barbells for Boobs for any of the four sponsor gyms. We will be hosting the stop at CrossFit Webster this year to accommodate more athletes per heat. Click here for full details of the event. #tutuhero #pinkbratour

On Saturday, Sept 20th, Flower City CrossFit and CrossFit Webster will be hosting a Hero WOD and Fundraiser in honor of RPD Officer Daryl Pierson. One of our members is a relative of his, so this hit very close to home for us.
We welcome the solidarity of other CrossFit boxes joining us with this WOD. The important thing is that everyone does something (and donates to the family through the official fund). Please feel free to join us in doing this WOD or change it for your community. We had some of our members do a dry run on Sunday, and the WOD should take most people in the 35-40 minute range with better athletes finishing in under 30.
The WOD (workout of the day):
8 rounds (8 years of service with RPD)
9 pull ups (September)
3 Deadlifts (315/225) (3rd)
14 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24"/20") (2014)
Flower City CrossFit: 7 am, 7:45 am, 8:30 am, 9:15 am
CrossFit Webster: 7 am, 9 am
We are asking all participants to donate $20 to the memorial fund that benefits his family (and bring your receipt to the WOD) or just bring $20 and we will make the donation on behalf of the gym community.

Officer Pierson was an 8-year member of the department and an Army veteran who served in Afghanistan. He is survived by his wife and two children, ages four years old and three months old.
The third annual WODmageddon went down on Sunday. This is a competition between members of our two gyms (FCCF and CrossFit Webster) where the teams are based on when you like to WOD -- AM vs Anytimers vs PM with teams from each gym. The winners this year were the FCCF Anytimers with the CF Webster PMers taking second place (and first at that gym). Congrats to all the members who participated in this fun event which included 3 team WODs.

The Rochester Heart Games was a Competition for CrossFit Affiliate Boxes in the Rochester Area. All proceeds benefited the Rochester American Heart Association.
During the month of May, we competed in four WODs at our boxes. The top three male and female competitors from those WODs represented our boxes at the competition. The first place competitors were the individual athletes (1 male & 1 female) and the 2nd and 3rd place competitors (2 males & 2 females) made up each team.
Congrats to all who participated and volunteered to make this a great event and charity fundraiser for the Rochester community! Our team ended up 2nd place and Michelle (our individual female) got 2nd place!
