About the Throwdown

The year’s Winter Throwdown will take place on Saturday, January 25, 2014.

The Throwdown will benefit the Lee County Humane Society and provide the funding they need to ship animals to “no kill” shelters. Many of you may not be aware, but their funding was cut drastically a few months ago. After a partnership spanning at least 30 years, Lee County and the Lee County Humane Society officially severed their contract. The commission voted to re-appropriate the $127,923 originally allocated to the Humane Society to the county’s environmental services department.


How will the Throwdown work?

Teams of 4 will make up this event. Teams can be mixed to your choosing. You may have all male, all female, one male, two females, etc. There will be 4-5 WOD’s for this event. The top 3 teams will complete the last WOD. Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m. with the first event beginning at 9:00 a.m. Each team must have a team name. (Nothing inappropriate)

DSC_0315Please arrive between 8:00-8:30 a.m. to get warmed up, stretch, work on mobility, etc. Please also feel free to bring protein shakes, food, drinks, etc. We have two water fountains and a Kill Cliff dispenser. We also have a kitchen if you would like to place anything in the refrigerator as well.

Judges will be made up of volunteers and/or coaches. We will not tolerate any  unsportsmanlike conduct or any arguments with judges. This event is about raising money for a charity and having a great time encouraging each other, not any one athletes personal gains/satisfactions.
