While the last weekend of March signaled the end of the CrossFit Games Open, that Sunday many of our members competed in an arguably more important physical competition: the Big Climb 31. These athletes, several of whom had just finished VERSUS X/CGO 17.5 the day before, scaled up 69 floors (or 1311 steps) up the Columbia Tower in order to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help in the fight against blood cancers.


The latest 2017 FCF Team

Out of 233 teams that raced that day, Team Foundation Climbers placed 20th overall, based on the aggregate of the top three times. That put us one spot ahead of Orange Theory (just throwing that out there)!

Everyone on our team performed amazing at the race, but what they really should be proud of is fundraising over $4,000 for an important cause!

There are a lot of people to recognize for their efforts in making this event as big of a success as it was.

First, there is the team who sweated it out in the stairwell- FCF athletes Paul Barkshire, Lauren Brogan, Joanne Kiesanowski, Emily Moss, Olivia Rother, Nathan Motsinger, Abhijit Hegde, Patrick Hodder, as well as friends and family like Anthony Aamodt, Conor Brogan, Michael Brogan, Vanessa Brogan, John Hodder, and Lennon Ward.

Secondly, a big thank you goes out to Tony and Nathan for putting our team shirts together. They were able to pull off a miracle in order to make sure the team was representing Foundation CrossFit in style.

Finally (and most importantly), we need to thank the donors for their incredible generosity. It is truly inspiring to see this community come together to support something meaningful.

The first 2011 FCF Team

If you are interested joining our great team next year, we will be posting instructions and start training in fall. In the meantime keep training!
