Cynergy CrossFit, Hanson
Cynergy CrossFit , 23 Commercial Waye, Hanson will be hosting a workout event and raffle to benefit dogs in need on Saturday, March 12, 10am-3pm.
Proceeds from the event will benefit:
Byron, a 10 year old Golden Retriever who needs a toe amputation due to a tumor. His owner Tim has been out of work and is unable to cover the cost of surgery. He has raised some funds through his friends and family but needs an additional $450 to cover vet bills.
The second dog is Achill, a 4 year old German Shepherd who was raised in the Czech Republic. Achill and his owner Nancy are graduates of the Boston Police K9 Academy and internationally certified as a narcotic detection team. Due to a serious injury during a K9 demonstration in December, Achill suffered a broken jaw and fractured a canine tooth. Achill was officially retired as a police dog in January as a result of the need for future veterinary care. Estimated dental work exceeds $4,000.
Vested Interest in K-9s, Inc. a Taunton based 501c(3) non-profit fundraising organization dedicated to providing bullet and stab protective vests for law enforcement K-9s throughout Massachusetts is the third recipient. Bullet/stab protective vests have a price tag of $735 each. Stop by and meet several area K9 teams.
Competitors will workout with a partner and may choose their own partner or Cynergy CrossFit will choose one for you. CrossFit will run several, short partner WODs (Workout of the Day) as well as a team event which will be a random pairing of two teams.
