ATTN DC Members!! Upcoming event!
On June 9th 2012, Delta CrossFit will be joining thousands of affiliates across the nation participating in the CrossFit for Hope Fundraiser.
How do I get involved?
You can either register to be a participant , sponsor participants and affiliates, or both. As a registered participant, people can search for you through the site. Seek out sponsors and have them visit your page to make a pledge or donation.
What's CrossFit for Hope?
CrossFit is combating childhood cancer and other deadly diseases through its inaugural CrossFit for Hope fundraiser, benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Contributions can be performance-based pledges or donations for participants and affiliates. We'll keep track of the athlete performances and donations for each individual and every participating Affiliate.
When is the "Hope" workout?
The Hope workout is on June 9, 2012. Contact your affiliate for more information about the schedule for the workout day.
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital opened in 1962 and was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas. Its mission is to find cures for children with cancer and other deadly diseases through research and treatment.
St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No family ever pays St. Jude for the care their child receives.
In the U.S., in children, more than 18,000 cases of cancer are diagnosed each year. Child cancer survival rates have increased from less than 20% when St Jude opened to almost 80% today.
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common childhood cancer. ALL has seen an impressive improvement in the five-year survival rate from 4% when St. Jude opened in 1962 to 94% today.
Why support St. Jude?
The support of caring people like you helps ensure that St. Jude Children's Research Hospital will continue its lifesaving mission of finding cures and saving children. St. Jude founder Danny Thomas believed that "no child should die in the dawn of life," and your donations help bring us closer to the day when every precious life can be saved.
How much of what I donate actually benefits the children?
100% of the proceeds from CrossFit for Hope go directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. During the past five years, 81 cents of every dollar received by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has supported the research and treatment at St. Jude.
To sponsor a participant or affiliate, use the "Donate or Make a Pledge" block in the right column of the site and search for the athlete or affiliate you would like to sponsor. There are two choices: Performance-based Pledges and Flat Donations.
If you opt for a Performance-based Pledge, you can choose how much you would like to pledge per point (rep) earned by the participant during the workout on June 9, 2012. Once the athlete enters their score for the workout, you will receive an email detailing how you can fulfill your total pledge amount.
If you opt to contribute with a Flat Donation, you can make an immediate contribution payment.
Both forms of sponsorship will contribute to the donations-earned amount of the participant, the affiliate, and the overall event, represented by a thermometer on their respective pages.
Is my pledge/donation tax-deductible?
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is exempt from federal income taxes under Section 501(C)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, therefore your gift is tax-deductible to the full extent provided by law. St. Jude is a nonprofit charity operating since 1962. Our federal tax identification number is 62-0646012.

WOW! That’s all I have to say to summarize how the weekend went. Thank you to all that came and supported our athletes this weekend. A Special thanks to the Freylers for lending out their Fifth Wheel to use this weekend.
So how do I begin. The day (Sunday, Day 3) started off again like the last two days, a buzz in the air, nervousness and a whole lot of adrenaline! Starting it off was Alex competing in his final workout the Snatch Ladder. Alex, moved through the snatches with ease, power snatching his way to 195. Then Alex gets to 205 and power snatches that sucker, PR! Then he hits 215. BOOM PR again. Way to go Alex. Way to start out the day.
Next we had the individual competitors, James, Desmond and Tim. James Started it off and power snatched his way to 185. Even though he had a little hiccup at 195, he still put in a solid effort was able to beat out 4 other guys and tie 2. Next was Desmond and Tim. They were stationed next to each other. Desmond went first and he put up the 155 pound weight with ease. Then he continued to power snatch all the way to 205 and getting the lift. Pretty good for a guy whose hands were like hamburger meat prior to this event. He got to the 215 and went straight for the extra points doing 50 extra double unders instead of attempting 215 pounds. With a little work, Desmond is going to be Snatching 275 in no time!
Last but not least, Tim was up. Slowly and methodically moved the weights with a face if determination. Like a samurai he sliced through those weights. Then he got to 205, BAM! Cheesecake it was up. Now he was facing his current PR which he just got the week before after 15 attempts! He slowly walked up to the weights, took a deep breath. BOOM! He ripped the weight off the ground and caught that sucker on his first attempt. Then he stood up and with a look of accomplishment he slammed the weights down ala John North style (that’s a Olympic lifter) He then attempted 225 pounds, got it over his head, but didn’t go. Did it again, and again over the head but it wasn’t meant to be. Don’t worry dude you’ll be getting that this week!
After the Snatch ladder event, Chris and I sat and waited to see if any of our guys made it to the last workout. Only the top 18 were going to make it to the last workout. As the results came in, James Wolfe, 29th, Desmond Bittner 19th (oooh man!! That was soo close!!! Dammit!) and Tim Johnston 18th! So we walked back to the camp, yelled out “Tim, stay warm cause you have one more!” I don’t know if he was happy or sad HAHA! In any case, Tim is a gamer and when it came time he would be ready to go.
Event 6 came around it was an action packed event. The workout was: 3 rounds- 7 deadlifts @345 7 Muscle ups, then 3 rounds 21 Wallballs 21 Toes to bar, Then 100 FT Farmers walk with 200 pounds, 28 Burpee Box Jumps, 100 FT farmers walk, then 3 muscles ups. Man what a grinder. Tim made it all the way to the burpee box jumps and was able to completed 17 burpee box jumps taking 3rd in his heat and 14th overall in that workout. In the end Tim still stayed in 18th place only a few points shy from the others ahead of him. Strong work!
Strong work to all the Athletes that competed this weekend. With James 30th, Desmond, 19th, and Tim’s 18th Placement, out of close to 3000 Athletes that competed in the Open and the Regionals in our region, I‘d say those are some pretty good numbers! I think this weekend opened some eyes towards our little gym by the Delta. Well 363 days till Regionals again and the open even sooner. Next year…….. We’ll be a force to be reckoned with!!!
Here are some pics from the weekend
Todays competition was looking a little more serious. Everyone seemed to have all there nerves back in check after yesterday. The weather felt a little hotter today which didnt make it any easier for anyone. But our guys seemed to like it a little. You could almost say they liked it!
Desmond is the dark horse. Finding his groove with the wod's today he was just seconds behind all the top competators in the 100lb one arm snatch wod and almost completed the long chipper, which not that many guys completed.
Tim is right behind Desmond holding on and grunting through the wods today.
Watching James snatch 1/3 of his bodyweight with one arm over his head was crazy to watch! He is crazy strong!
Good luck guys! Snatch some shit today!
Day 1 current overall placement:
Team Ewa Beach (Alex's team)-28th
If you couldn't make it down to today you missed some fierce compitition ! James started off the day in the first mens heat. He seemed a little nervous but focused and ready to crush it!......and did by taking 1st place in his heat, which bumped him into 14th place over all after the first wod. He finished his second work out by completing the required minimum 10 rep in the 225lb hang cleans before time expires. But surprised himself by hitting 16 reps! Earlier in the week he struggled with this workout and was only able to complete 7 before time expired at 17:00, which would have eliminated him from the competition. Way to kill it James!!!
Tim and Desmond were in the same heat to start It was fun to watch both of them in the same heat battle it out with a few other CrossFit bad asses. Tim crushed this work out coming in second place in his heat with a 2:31 Diane time. His judge miss reped him 9 times, so essentially he did 9 more reps than required and still flew through this workout. It was awesome to see him do strict handstand pushups all the way through the entire workout. He finished his second workout by completing 18 hang clean reps before time expired.
Desmond looked like a special forces bad ass coming out of the ready tent with his boony hat. He made the 225lb look like it was a twig, although he struggled with handstand pushups in the last round, he still crushed Diane in 4:26. Desmond excelled in the second workout today by completing 29 reps, almost finishing the 30 reps within the 17 minute cap time , which only a hand full of guys did. Way to kill it Desmond!
Alex joined Delta CrossFit during the open at the begining of the year. Which ment he was eligible to compete with his former box in Ewa Beach, Hawaii for the team competiton. The team competition works different, you only choose part of your team to complete the workouts. Alex was chosen for the 1000 row, 20 pistol squats and 15 hang cleans at 225lbs. He had a fast row and was able to float through his pistol squats. Can I just say it? 225 hang cleans are stupid! haha. Alex got through all 15 reps only missing 2-3 reps. It was exciting to watch Alex compete as part of a team event. So much loudness and yelling! lol
We'll be there all weekend, come join us!!
Good Luck Tomorrow dudes!!
