Since 2008, CrossFit South Brooklyn has conducted a yearly fundraiser in the form of a workout called “Fight Gone Bad.” Last year, we raised nearly $18,000 for the Brooklyn Community Foundation, a local organization dedicated to improving the lives of people in Brooklyn by strengthening communities through local giving, grant-making, and community service. And over the last 10 years, CFSBK has raised over $600,000 to benefit local communities. This year, we’ll be partnering the Sunrise Movement, a coalition of young people who aim to stop climate change and create millions of jobs in the process, in hopes of making a difference in the wider world beyond Brooklyn.
The registration deadline is Sunday September 8th, 2019.

Why are we fundraising?
In the past, our annual FGB fundraiser has been a great way to bring
our community together to support great charities. Over the last 10 years, we've raised over $600,000 to benefit local communities! This year, we're proud to be partnering with the Sunrise Movement, a coalition of young people who aim to stop the climate crisis and create millions of jobs in the process.
Will there be a fundraising minimum?
While we'd love for everyone to make wholehearted attempts to raise
funds, there is no fundraising minimum to participate. However, as in
years past, there will be some sweet prizes awarded to the top
Tell me more about the workout. What if I can't do it Rx'd?
Here's Coach Glassman explaining FGB in detail. And don't worry, we have scaling options available!
So the day begins at 9am, but how long will it last? When will my team go?
The length of the event depends on how many total athletes/teams we
have. We run two teams through the workout simultaneously and new
heats start every 20 minutes. Unfortunately, we can’t tell you exactly
what time your team will be going until we get closer to the event. Of
course, we hope that you plan on spending a few hours with us, not only
competing but also supporting your fellow teams. And per usual, we'll
have some tasty adult beverages to enjoy!
What if I can't attend that Saturday, October 5th?
