CrossFit Darien "Rup" Fundraiser


Brian Rupsis is the owner and head trainer of CrossFit Darien. On August 22, 2012 he was suddenly and unexpectedly diagnosed with leukemia.  A fundraiser in his name will take place on Dec 15th, 2012 with heats starting at 10am. Please register for the event in advance at for assigned heats or sign up on location to do the workout in a later heat. A $23 fee is required to participate in the event. All donations go to the Rupsis Family Fund, helping Brian and his family with the medical bills and other costs associated with his diagnosis and treatment.

This is our chance, as his CrossFit family, to do something for him. Prior to being diagnosed with cancer Brian weighed in at 205 pounds.  His gym will collectively do a DEADLIFT themed workout, as we try to lift him through this. The workout will be:
