Please mark your calendars: CrossFit For Hope is on! This year’s event raises money to find cures for catastrophic children’s illnesses. The event will take place on Saturday, July 6 on the National Mall. The workout:

Hope for Cures
three rounds:
burpee (reps)
power snatch @ 75/55-lbs. (reps)
box jump, 24″ platform (reps)
thruster @ 75/55-lbs. (reps)
chest-to-bar pull-up (reps)

In this workout you will move from each of the five stations after one minute. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a five-minute round, from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On the call of “rotate,” you must immediately move to the next station for the best score. One point is given for each repetition.

This workout is scored by the total points.

To participate, you must register for the event on the Mall, and for the fundraising effort. What you need to know about both:
