Today’s workout comes from CrossFit Football. CFFB Founder John Welbourn created the workout in memory of a young boy, Wade DeBruin, who died of neuroblastoma at only two years old. If you wish to donate to “Wade’s Army,” you can do so here.
From the Wade’s Army website:
“Cancer is a word everyone knows. And a word no one wants to hear. Certain cancers are common household names. Most people have heard of leukemia, breast cancer, and prostate cancer. Neuroblastoma, on the other hand, is mysterious to many. Wade’s Wings wants to change that. We believe the only way to conquer this extremely aggressive childhood cancer is to give it a name.”
These are the courageous words from the DeBruin family who are leading the charge against the pediatric cancer, neuroblastoma, in the name of their brave son, Wade. Shortly after learning to walk, Wade DeBruin took on a challenge that every parent fears for their child.
Wade was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at 18 months old. Neuroblastoma is the leading pediatric cancer killer. Almost 70% of children who are diagnosed with neuroblastoma have an advanced stage of the disease, and less than 40% of those with this advanced disease live five years. Wade put up strong fight, but he passed away on November 12, 2011, leaving his twin sister and parents behind.
Wade’s Army was created to rally against Neuroblastoma. Last year the army raised over $18,000 in Wade’s name for Neuroblastoma research and support of families battling the cancer.
Today, Wade’s Army is gathering across the world to bring awareness to Wade’s battle and put up a fight for him during a CrossFit Football workout. We are recruiting you to join Wade’s Army to spread the word, support the cause and band together in the fight against Neuroblastoma.
