Did you really think we were going to build a shrine of fitness in the epicenter of the best party town in the country and not throw a massive shindig to celebrate the coolest, swollest, raddest, fittest, and best lookingest group of people to ever grace the human species?
Yeah right…seriously…you didn’t really think that did you?
On March 15th, 2014, CrossFit PB will be hosting its 3rd Grand Opening Party in four years. Yeah, three Grand Openings, that is insane. In conjunction with the Grand Opening, we will also be hosting the Third annual Hoyt Foundation fundraiser for our boy Chuck Wagner. We started this event in 2012 with the Grand Opening of CrossFit PB North and raised around $700, which was super cool. Then we made this thing legit, got some sponsors, and raised $1,400 in 2013. Now it is 2014, this will be the fourth time Chuck has run The Boston Marathon for the Hoyt Foundation, and our goal is over $2,000.
We are also bringing in 14 sponsors to get the fundraising energy rolling. Many of these sponsors have offered up gift certificates that we will be raffling off. This is not a short list so pull up that paleo chair and make sure you click and check out all of their websites.

The 2014 running of The Boston Marathon brings with it many of the memories of the tragic bombings from 2013. Chuck was one mile away from finishing the race before the bombings occurred and his family was waiting for him to cross the finish line 50 feet away from the first bombing. As a gym, in 2013, we coined a workout called “Chuck’s Last Mile” and as a group finished the last mile to begin every class. This is not just a celebration for the grand opening. It is an event and foundation that we believe in and support whole heartedly. The story of Dick and Rick Hoyt, the story of Chuck Wagner, and the stories of the lives touched through this amazing foundation have moved us on a very personal level. Yes, we are throwing a party to celebrate the opening of our new gym, but, the real story and celebration is for the athletes that are part of Team Hoyt and the lives it enriches.
