Success! We Raised $967 For Puertas Abiertas

Our humble little fundraiser a few weeks ago raised $967 for the displaced and underserved in Napa!

We gathered to Pledge For Pull-Ups, our Fire Recovery Fundraiser on Saturday, October 28. There were a total of 42 strict pull-ups in the WOD, and we asked that participants pledge 42 of the amount they thought they could do.

Mayor Jill – a longtime Wine Country CrossFitter –  kicked off the event, and all levels worked hard side by side. We had the young, the old and everything in between.

Today I walked down the bike path and around the corner to the Puertas Abiertas office. It is a simple house that they have turned into a distribution center. The staff has worked around the clock since the fire, and they were delighted that we had done a grass-roots fundraiser for them.

Yolanda Ayala oversees the donations, and said “It was a pleasure meeting you today! Thank you so much for your generosity and concern for our community!!”

Wine Country CrossFitters, we make a difference!
