As my Bar Mitzvah approaches this October 2018 , I wanted to start thinking about how I can make a difference. As many of you know, my Grandma Nancy passed away six years ago in October 2012 from Multiple Myeloma. I miss her very much, especially on occasions like this where I know she would have been so happy for me. I wanted to do something in her memory, to help others fight that disease, and so decided to do a Cross fit Fundraiser. I've been doing cross fit for almost two years now and I love it. All funds raised will be donated to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) which is an organization dedicated to finding a cure. We are planning on holding a cross fit class for kids and adults on October 6 and I will also be doing a personal cross fit challenge in my weekly classes. I will send out emails with that week's challenge should you choose to sponsor me for that week !
