Our friends at CrossFit Advanced are doing good yet again. We just finished designing a Men Of CrossFit calendar for the team. What started out as a “just for fun” idea has now turned into something much more.
Story Of The Calendar
December 14, 2012 was a memorable day for the men of CrossFit Advanced in Easton, PA. Purely for fun, the men gathered to do what they love the most. Stances were struck. Game faces, steeled. The smack of powdery palms filled the gym while truck tires were victoriously hoisted overhead and gravity defying, superman flying pushups launched again and again until just the right mid-flight image was captured. As the photographer snapped picture after picture for this calendar, the horrific tragedy in Newtown was unfolding.
Suddenly, December 14th became memorable for a very different and far more important reason… one that was heavier than any weight lifted that day. In memoriam and respect for the children, teachers and surviving families of Sandy Hook Elementary School, CFA of Easton immediately decided to help. The display of strength you see on each page symbolizes the amazing strength of the heroes and survivors of the Sandy Hook massacre. Senselessly, lives were taken, dreams were shattered and for many, life will never be the same. But each small token of love is meant to honor the victims and remind the families that they are not alone. From a small town in Pennsylvania, this calendar is a tiny offer of help and hope.
Thank you for purchasing this calendar where 100% of proceeds will be donated to the Newtown Memorial Fund. Your generous contribution will help victims’ families pay for funeral costs, construct a memorial and establish a scholarship fund for the students of Newtown Public Schools.
