CrossFit Newmarket Central has been the proud home for CrossFit to Crossout Cancer which held its first event in May of 2016 to raise funds for Southlake Regional Health Centres – Stronach Regional Cancer Centre.
CrossFit to Crossout Cancer was the dream of Ambrosio Benudiz and Krystine Ross as a means to giving back to the community and to support research into the cure and prevention of Cancer. Cancer affects all of us in different ways – Ambrosio’s wife Andrea was treated for cervical Cancer at Southlake and is now Cancer free. Krystine’s mom was recently diagnosed this past summer with Breast Cancer and continues to fight back.
The Stronach Regional Cancer Centre receives funding from the government for treatment but new technology & equipment is only brought in when they receive donations from fundraisers like the CrossFit to Crossout Cancer event!
To date CrossFit to Crossout Cancer has raised over $64 000, in support for the Stronach Regional Cancer Centre and these funds support providing technologies which will help detect cancer sooner, and increase the effectiveness of treatment.
Giving back to the community makes us all feel a tiny bit less helpless because we are doing what we can to support those fighting cancer with the best technology and treatment. As we prepare for this year’s event – we ask you; who are you fighting for? How can you help make a difference? #southlakeregional #CrossFittocrossoutcancer #fightbackgiveback #doitordonate
