Yesterday a gym started by 3 friends and called “Pivot Point Crossfit,”decided to use their grand opening as a vehicle for raising money for Spike’s K9 Fund. They created a workout or “WOD” called “Spike” and based it off of a matrix that a working K9 may follow during a night of work. Running, Climbing, some heavy lifting and “holding on” through a violent encounter. It was incredible. Volunteers from a lovely little establishment, “The Bier Garten” came out and cooked up some excellent food We had “Canine Boomer” from a nearby Police Department, put on a demonstration. We were provided with a table and a location to set up and sell Spike’s K9 Fund “swag” and space for our donation boxes (which were filled). In all it was a day filled with community and generosity and Spike’s K9 Fund made over $3,000.00 in donations and sales. I am grateful to live in a country where people can hang out their shingle and do business. I am humbled by, and grateful for, our volunteers. I am humbled by yet another example of the sense of community that the Crossfit culture demonstrates on a regular basis. I am grateful for the generosity of people who see the meaning of our mission and help us out in the many ways we need it. So in short…..I am humbled and grateful for much. Thank You.
