FGB This Saturday Nov 2…For a Great Cause!


Some of the students who have benefited from Boost! West Oakland’s services


As we wrote about a few weeks ago, we’re holding a fundraiser workout, Fight Gone Bad (FGB) this Saturday, November 2 at CFO.  We’re doing this along with the good folks at United Barbell, who will be running their folks through FGB as well.

Besides getting a great workout in, we’re raising money for a really good–and local–cause:  Boost! West Oakland

Boost! West Oakland (formerly known as Lafayette School Mentoring Project) is a no-cost tutoring and mentoring program for K-5 students enrolled at Lafayette Elementary School in West Oakland.

Our goal is to raise $3,000, and we’re really close, but we need help from all of you to get there.  Making a donation is really easy.  It took me about 3 minutes to complete the whole process (it’s way easier than actually going through FGB).  Here’s what you need to do to donate:

1.  Go to the main fundraising page.
2.  Click on the “Make a Donation” button at the top right of the page.
3.  Get ready to take on FGB on Saturday!

To sweeten the deal, we’ve got a little competition going against United Barbell.  If we lose to United Barbell, we have to match client contributions.  If they lose, they have to match client contributions.  Either way, Boost! West Oakland benefits, but we also get some bragging rights.

Let’s do this!
