Our Annual Juggling for Jude  Post

We spent 36 hours in Memphis at the ALSAC/St. Jude 60th Anniversary celebration. Our younger daughter, Hollis, accepted the Jerry Nicholson Award, given to a young person for exemplary fundraising and awareness raising for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We are truly grateful for the TJ’s Gym community’s support of Juggling for Jude over the past three years and figure that approximately 25% of the $129,000 Hollis has  raised comes from people at TJ’s Gyms. Continuing to set her goals high, Hollis’s next goal is $200,000. Having just been to St. Jude, touring their incredible facilities and hearing more about their mission and operation, now more than ever, we know the importance for all of us of supporting their lifesaving work.

For anyone reading this looking for a charity to get behind, we hope you will consider Juggling for Jude. For those who have given before, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts and hope you will consider giving again this summer season. Hollis is juggling daily and is also available to give lessons to kids wanting to develop their soccer skills, in exhange for support of her fundraiser. Please take a few minutes to check out her blog post about her experience being at St. Jude. And if you have 3 minutes to spare, click on the link to her acceptance speech there, and give her a listen. She spoke to a room filled with hundreds of CEO’s and CFO’s and Board Members and St. Jude legacy donors, and parents of patients. We are proud and blessed parents and are extremely grateful for your interest and support. When you spend time with parents whose kids are fighting cancer or who have lost their battles, you recommit to doing whatever you can to change the face of this illness, including making use of your business forum to garner support. Thank you for your time and ongoing generosity!

TJ’s Gym Workouts for the Week of 5.29.17

 #tjsteam2017

Athletic competition is rarely predictable or in our control. After a fabulous first day of competition at the CrossFit Regionals, things took an unexpected and unwelcomed turn on day two.  Jeff tore his lat, just a few reps into the team’s third workout. He managed to complete the workout, which included bar muscle ups and rowing, for which lats come in super handy.  Jeff is a fighter, and he wanted nothing to do with letting down our team. With Jeff unable to continue, the team was forced to withdraw from the rest of the competition.  Alternate Jesse would have killed it off the bench, but rules clearly state that no subs are permitted. The good news is that we are a resilient bunch surrounded by a resilient and loving community with great perspective. These athletes will find themselves on that floor again, even more formidable and hungry than they are now. Like competition, life doesn’t always go as planned. Surrounding yourself with the right people is critical, because the diversions in the path are a lot more tolerable when you travel them with good souls.  To our community: Thank you for your support of these athletes, thank you for your spirit, and thank you for engaging in the competitive season with enthusiasm and warmth. GO BLUE!

Susan Lionel

Special shout out to Coach Susan, who worked like crazy these past few days, covering classes six days in a row, to help us ensure that all classes were on. With 90% of our coaches at Regionals or on vacation, efforts like Susan’s were critical!  Thanks, also, to Coaches Mika, Nicki, and Deirdra, who also stepped up to cover classes not usually on their plates!  It truly takes a village, and ours is amazing! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
