PRs for Puerto Rico

PR for PuertoRico

As you know Puerto Rico, along with various other places, has recently been ravaged by large weather events and the hurricane has been described as the biggest catastrophe in the history of Puerto Rico in terms of natural disasters.  They are facing a situation in which much of their infrastructure needs to be rebuilt and this rebuilding is not going to happen overnight.

At times like these it can seem like there is so little that one person can do to help.  But utilizing the wisdom of Mother Teresa who said “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one” and “we feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean, but the ocean would be less because of that missing drop” we have decided to do what little we can to offer help to the people of Puerto Rico.

During October, our “testing month” at CrossFit Hyannis, CrossFit Hyannis and Ward Construction will donate $5 for each PR that anyone hits at the gym for any of our benchmark testing (up to 5 PRs, then $2 for subsequent PRs- there are 20 tests including strength, endurance, gymnastics, etc. over the course of month).  We will be donating all money to “United for Puerto Rico.”

If anyone who would like to join us in this effort they are welcome to- perhaps contributing a certain dollar amount for each PR you hit (this can be anything you want or nothing at all).  Obviously PRs aren’t the most important thing, but we view this as a way to recognize the strength of our athletes to help others.

We’ll get into the details of what constitutes a PR at the gym :)
