The official total funds raised by the CrossFit Central community for The Flatwater Foundation are IN! This year we tried a few new fundraising ideas from a little pie-your-coach-in-the-face event to a deadlift-a-thon. Together, we raised $15,397 for this incredible organization!! Thank you to everyone that donated, got involved, and helped spread awareness – we are so grateful!
