For those of you who have never heard of the Fight Gone Bad fundraising program, it’s an annual event that Sportsgrants puts on to raise funds for various support to veterans and their families.  This year, the 6th year of the fundraiser, the cause will be to fund the Special Operations Warrior Fund (SOWF) which will fund college tuition to the children of Special Operations personnel (Delta Force, Rangers, Navy SEALs, Naval Special Warfare, Air Force Combat Controllers/Pararescue, Marines Special Operations Regiment) who have died in combat or training like those 31 who recently died when their helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan.

I’m not big into politics, but I am big on respecting professional warriors who knowingly go into harm’s way to fight for good.  I believe out of any branch of military, Special Operations are made up of the best of what our country has to offer.  We didn’t participate in the fundraiser last year because we didn’t have the right equipment to the the Fight Gone Bad workout as prescribed, and we still don’t this year, but I don’t want that to be an excuse to deter us from supporting a great cause.  We’ll make do, like we’ve always have, with what we have to run Fight Gone Bad workout and I hope all of you join me in fundraising and doing your best in the workout for this cause.  We’ll schedule a date for the workout soon (we will be closed on 9/17), but you can go here for more details about the event:
