Fight Gone Bad began as a fundraising event in 2006. From those humble beginnings and with the support of the CrossFit community, weâ€™ve proven what a small, totally committed group of people can accomplish. The first four editions of Fight Gone Bad have raised a combined total of more than $2 million.
Fight Gone Bad 5 opens its arms to benefit three charities this year: LIVESTRONG, Wounded Warrior Project and the CrossFit Foundation.
Fight Gone Bad 5 takes place on Saturday, September 25, 2010.
The event can take place at any CrossFit Affiliate facility between 6am and 4pm.
The event format is the Fight Gone Bad CrossFit format:
