WOD for a Cause 2018!

September 29th, 2018! 


Dear Friends and Merchants,

For the past four years, CrossFit Murrieta has hosted its annual event, WOD for a Cause. In teams of two, registered participants complete a series of CrossFit workouts to find the fittest male and female team. It’s a fun, wholesome event that aims to raise money for a local family, charity or institution in need.

Our 2018 WOD for a Cause is focused on our military and law enforcement community members that suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and/or traumatic brain injury (TBI). We have identified a non-profit organization, Next Step Service Dogs (NSSD), that specializes in training dogs to assist active duty, veteran and first responders with invisible disabilities (PTSD & TBI) and limited mobility. NSSD pairs individuals with specially trained dogs to improve their quality of life, independence, and overall sense of love and companionship. Most impressively, NSSD does not charge for its services and helps to care for the animal for the duration of its life.

The event will take place on Saturday, September 29, 2018. Each registered participant will have an opportunity to work out in honor of an active duty, veteran or law enforcement officer. All proceeds will be donated to Next Step Service Dogs.

You can help this amazing cause by becoming a sponsor for this year’s WOD for a Cause. Enclosed is a sponsorship menu with numerous opportunities. For your generosity, your business will receive a great deal of exposure and recognition, all supporting an amazing organization.

Spotlight on our Athlete, Mario Borrego

Mario joined CrossFit Murrieta four years ago. From his first trial workout, he was hooked. Since that day, Mario has shown up every day ready to work hard. He pours his heart into his workouts and makes friends with everyone he meets. He is an asset to our community! You can often find Mario at CrossFit Murrieta with his beloved daughter, Abigail, and his service dog, Sierra.

Mario is a veteran U.S. Navy Corpsman who served with the 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines. During his deployment to Ramadi, Iraq, Mario’s battalion, the Magnificent Bastards, fiercely battled Iraqi insurgents. Many brave men lost their lives in these battles. Mario returned home safely, but is forever affected by the events he experienced. Since that time, Mario has sought the help of the Veterans Administration and other related organizations to help him deal with PTSD. He was paired with a service dog, Sierra, that has brought him great comfort and joy. Mario is also passionate about helping others who are battling PTSD.

As a long-time member of the CrossFit Murrieta family, Mario has participated in the last four WOD for a Cause events and is grateful to see that this year’s proceeds will be donated to an organization that will help so many brave men and women. Thank you for your service, Mario!
