Here it is, the grand finale, Stop 12 of the Pink Bra Tour! We were in our hometown of Costa Mesa, California at CrossFit Costa Mesa and we want to send them a HUGE THANK YOU for their fundraising efforts last year and for putting on amazing weekend to end our tour.
The day kicked off with opening ceremonies but this time we had a special guest speaker. Three year-old Cash, the son of our CEO, decided that it was his turn to grab the mic in the middle of mom’s speech. What was said, we will never know, but it was definitely moving.
The workout of the day was, you guessed it, “Grace”. Everybody got in on the action. There was regular, heavy, scaled and even a Beer Grace with 1 beer chugged after every 10 clean & jerks. For some people Grace is a workout they do every year at this event and for some people this was their first ever. All of them went just as hard and it was an amazing atmosphere to be in.
Susan G. Komen of Orange County was in the house who has been a grantee partner since the launch of our program. We had 6 legacy advocates and survivors on hand for the festivities, one shared her story and another participated in Grace doing it as prescribed while currently fighting breast cancer for the 3rd time at the young age of 37. We also had a special guest Dr. Tushar P. Patel, MD Diagnostic Radiology on hand to speak with the crowd.
We want to give a special thank you to all of the great vendors and sponsors that showed up and supported the athletes. Setwear Fitness was on hand with tons of great weight belts and gear. Progenex was in the house offering free samples and helping athletes recover. Rock Tape made sure that all the athletes were moving to the best of their ability and Compex had units on hand making sure that everyone could properly recover after the WOD.
We also want to send a special thank you to all of the BFB Pro and Youth Advocates that were on hand for the events: Max and Gillian Mormont, Guido Trinidad, Val Voboril, Nathan Contreras, Dylan Contreras, Jake Bishop and Phoenix Phillips.
Sunday CFCM hosted their traditional PBT Oly Meet. Multiple local athletes competed and Coach Max coached about half of them. Special guest Coach Jodi Vaughn made an appearance to coach Youth Advocates Jake Bishop, Phoenix Phillips and our founder Z (who hit a PR Snatch and qualified for USAW Master’s Nationals!). Even Board of Director Member Alec Hanson threw down! Chelsie Guardado and Progenex Athlete, Christian Lucero had the highest Sinclair totals for the women and men.
That’s it for Stop 12 at CrossFit Costa Mesa and the Tour. Thank you all for the support and the many great memories! Until next year…
