24 Oct We Take Care of Our Own
He is one of our own and he needs our help. Boston (aka Bubs, Bossman, B-man) has a cancerous tumor growing on his brain stem. Bubs is the 3 year old son of our own Coach Quadzilla (Ashley) and Joe and has probably spent more time at the gym than most of us being there with Ashley all the time.
We will follow up with a later post detailing the reason why Boston and his incredible family are so special. But for now we wanted to push out a couple of things.
GO RIGHT NOW AND DONATE MONEY BY CLICKING HERE. They are going to incur a small fortune in medical expenses as Boston undergoes radiation treatment in the future. So far, we have had donations ranging from $4-$500. Any amount no matter how small will help.
PRAY. Right now pray Boston, pray for strength, make them feel your love.
SAVE THE DATE: SATURDAY NOVEMBER 10TH
We are working on an epic fundraiser for Saturday, November 10th. Of course will be doing some workouts/lift-a-thon. But it will be more than just another workout fundraiser. We will have something for everyone! We are looking to make it a tailgate atmosphere. We will have stuff for kids, cornhole, shirts and wristbands for sale, raffles, food, and fun. Joe, Ash, and Boston plan on being there as long a medical appointment doesn’t keep them. We want to raise as much money as possible and have as much fun as possible.
We will be meeting at Port City Pub Thursday after the 530pm class is over to discuss details for the 10th. Once we get them finalized we will post them here on the blog and Facebook.
GO ATTEND A FUNDRAISER!!
Say what you will about Southern Ohio, and we obviously have our faults, but I’ll be damned if we don’t take care of our own. Once the story our lil Bubs hit Facebook, the entire Scioto County poured their hearts and wallets out. Below is a list of fundraisers/links that we encourage you to attend. These are the ones I’m tracking, I apologize if I left something out. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get them up there.
