The Industrial Athlete Championship Series is designed to test your heart, strength, endurance and overall mental toughness – it is NOT a hyper-technical CrossFit only event! We welcome all athletes who want to test themselves against the unknown. We will provide events with challenges you have never prepared for. There is no perfect way to train for this as you won’t know what the competition involves until at least 4 days prior to the event. For more information on the rules and the event itself, please visit the About Us and Event pages.
This is your chance to veer outside of your comfort zone and in the process, help bring some comfort to a little girl who needs our help. Please take the time to watch Savannah’s Story and understand the money raised during this event will go directly to the purchase of a service dog for her and her family. A little sweat and discomfort – all for a good cause.
At 16 months old, Savannah was diagnosed with Juvenile (type 1) Diabetes. On diagnosis, Savannah’s blood sugar was 1319! Just to let you know how grave her situation was, blood sugars over 800 are enough to take the life of a grown man. BUT, Savannah is our miracle child; she is a survivor. Over the last year, Savannah has tolerated 200 shots and 3000 finger pricks. In the eight years since her diagnosis Savannah has endured over 23,000 finger pricks and 7,500 insulin injections. Savannah is an Angel and takes 99% of these shots without even shedding a tear! She is one tough cookie that continues to bless our family with her strength and resilience!
We are trying to get a service dog for Savannah to help alert us before Savannah’s blood sugars get dangerously low. It’s our goal to avoid the heart and kidney disease, blindness, amputation, and early death that is a reality for many people with juvenile diabetes.
Our family is deeply grateful to you for helping us reach our goal of raising $7,000 to cover the cost of a service dog.
