Some members of CrossFit Dynamo, located just off Bethelview Road, are going to put in some tough work for a good cause.

Starting at 7 p.m. on Friday, 10 teams will take part in 24in24, meaning they will be doing 24 workouts in 24 hours to raise funds for the Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research. 


To participate

The workout is open to the public, and donations can be made to the organization directly at RallyFoundation.org or the event’s page at fundraise.rallyfoundation.org/captainjohn.

“What we’ll be doing is one workout every hour on the hour for basically a day,” said Affiliate Owner John Manser, later adding, “The 24 hour part of the event can be transforming when you kind of whittle people away to their threadbare emotions. It can be very, very compelling and really helps them to find their best selves.

Manser said teams have been set and about 50 people will be participating. More than $36,000 has been raised as of Thursday.

“It’s teams of four, and just like CrossFit, they’re all going to be constantly varied events,” he said. “Every hour on the hour I’m going to be letting them know what they’re going to be asked to do and they’re now strategizing on how they’re going to get that done.

“We have everything from simple things like running and rowing and bicycling up the fan bike to lifting weights, jumping on boxes, doing pushups and sit-ups.”

The workout is open to the public, and encouraged them to make donations to the organization directly at RallyFoundation.org or his personal fundraising page at fundraise.rallyfoundation.org/captainjohn.

“We would love for the community to come out and support and watch them,” Manser said. “We actually have a couple of interesting things going on. At 8 a.m., we’re going to have a workout that is comprised of sprinting and eating donuts.”
