More than just a workout.
Team G Childhood Cancer Foundation is a community committed to put pediatric cancer in its place. “West Be Ready for Hope” is being spearheaded by Kayla Baumgardener, trainer extraordinaire at CrossFit West Santa Cruz! Held at the awesome CrossFit West, powered by an inspirational cause, the event brings together CrossFitters of all abilities. The only requirement is a positive attitude, some muscles, and a passion for fighting childhood cancer. This local event raises local and national funds for our Hope Tote program and pediatric cancer research at leading hospitals on the West Coast, including Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, Seattle Children’s Hospital, and UC Santa Cruz’ Treehouse Childhood Cancer Initiative.

We are commUNITY.
We come together as family, friends, and community, united by a common goal. We are achievable. Sweat and workout at your own pace! It’s a workout everyone will win. We are parents of survivors. Childhood cancer doesn’t own us. We will put it in it’s place. We are fun…wait…we are FUN!. Childhood cancer is serious business, but the workout doesn’t have to be. We are focused. We have a one-track mind. We exist to fight childhood cancer. We fight as one.
We sweat for your child, your brother, your sister, your grandchild, your niece or nephew. We sweat for the children just diagnosed and for their families fighting the battle of their lives. We sweat for the angels, warriors, and survivors. We sweat for the children recently diagnosed and the ones who have not yet been diagnosed. We sweat to celebrate our child’s remission and we sweat for those who are running out of time.
We fight childhood cancer.
Pediatric cancer is the number one disease killer of children in the U.S. taking the lives of more children than asthma, AIDS, multiple sclerosis and muscular dystrophy combined. A lack of funding into new and improved therapies contributes to this sobering statistic. Approximately 15,780 children will be diagnosed in 2016 and an estimated 2,550 children and adolescents will die from cancer. Through our fundraisers and activities, Team G motivates and encourages individuals to join in the fight against pediatric cancer.
We are Team G.

Tip 06 – Ask, Ask, Ask!
