“Miles for Smiles” Mission of Mercy 5k this Saturday!
Join us at Veteran’s Park this Saturday at November 12th at 3pm for a 5k in support of North Carolina’s Mission of Mercy Clinics.  Lauren Piertrzykowski organized this event as her senior project and she needs support.  The NC Mission of Mercy provides free dental care for those in NC who cannot afford it.  Registration fee is $15, payable at the event.  For more info go to Facebook event “Lauren Piertrzykowski’s Senior Project: Miles for Smiles”.

CrossFit Wilmington members, Ilario Pantano (Pantano For Congress) and Frank C. contributed to the Green Beret Foundation and participated in the foundation’s 1st annual, “Pro / Am Shooting Competition” at 37 Public Shooting Range.  The competition paired contributors, the “Ams”, with Green Berets, the “Pros”, in 2 man teams for head to head competition.  The event raised over $11,000 for the GB Foundation.  Kudos to Frank McRae and crew at 37 PSR for putting a great event and a huge thanks to Frank, Ilario and all sponsors, for helping our injured GBs and their families.

“Shoot and no shoot” targets at various ranges …  Frank (left) properly utilizes cover while reducing threats.  Jay (right), Ilario’s Pro teammate, was wounded in action (WIA), receiving severe abdominal injuries.  Jay, and men like him, is why The Green Beret Foundation was created.

    Nancy is one the favs… get some.

    Interested in a CrossFit style pool workout. Wednesday mornings at the YMCA, a few of us meet and get in a wet wod. We begin at 640am. Get there early if you’re not a YMCA member to register and pay.

    Frank’s team took 4th place and received a few very nice prizes. IP’s team… well, they didn’t finish last. Ha.

    If you’ve never attended an event with wounded service personnel, it is an experience.

    The GBs at this shoot were all sporting the latest in prosthetics, having lost legs, arms, or both. Many continue to serve, deploy, and fight in wars that insure our way of life is not lost to extreme Islamic fundamentalists. They make jokes about their mechanical parts and make the best.

    If you think about it, log onto one of the charities’ (Wounded Warrior, SOWF, Green Beret Foundation, or others that help our wounded) websites and donate few bucks. It means something.

    Anyone know of a good team / program / instructor who teaches adult swim? I can swim well enough to not drown but I’m severely hampered when I try to do anything for time or distance. I’d love to get into a program that does 2-3x a week.

    There is a masters swimming program I believe 3 mornings a week at UNCW. I can look into it more if you are interested Chris. It’s early morning workouts and they even have a few competitions each year that you can do if interested. Let me know if you want me to find out more information. I wish I could swim with you guys!!
