Sept. 11 fitness fundraiser benefits Doherty Foundation

The GLEN WOD Fitness Fundraiser, presented by Seasick Marketing on Sept. 11 at Crossfit 2120 in Del Mar, honors Glen Doherty, an Encinitas resident who was killed in the terror attacks in Bengahzi in 2012.

An open-gym workout done in Crossfit style (but with accommodations made for all levels of fitness), the event will raise money for the Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation (GDMF), a charity started by Doherty’s family. The GDMF provides current and former special operations professionals, from all branches of the government, the means necessary to transition and succeed in civilian life. It also enables the children and families of these soldiers the ability to mature and grow through recreation.

The event runs from 8 a.m. to noon and is focused around a predetermined “Glen” workout. Participants can warm up at their leisure and start the dedicated workout once they are ready. When they are finished, Seasick Marketing will provide food, beer, music, a silent auction and a raffle. The event is family friendly.

“We have organized other fundraisers in the past, but when we approached Crossfit 2120 in Del Mar, with the idea to do something different, something fun, in the fitness community, they jumped on board, and we built the fundraiser we have now, a family-friendly, fitness-inspired workout that promotes a healthy lifestyle,” said Jeff Stoner, owner of Seasick Marketing. “We try to capture the essence of Glen’s love for recreation and fitness in four hours.”

A $50 donation includes a fundraiser shirt and raffle tickets. Prizes for the silent auction and raffle include signed sports memorabilia, athletic shoes, a GoPro camera, VIP packages to sporting events, hotel stays, sunglasses and much more.
