CrossFit PHX is excited to celebrate our 7th Anniversary and 6th annual WOD 4 Trent Competition and Fundraiser on Saturday, April 4, 2020. As a valued partner of the gym, we would love for you to participate in our efforts to raise money for the fight against cancer. This fundraiser was created in honor of our owner’s dear friend, Trent White, who passed away at the young age of 28 from oral cancer.
Who was Trent?
Trent was one of Mycal’s best friends and teammates from the Air Force Academy. He would go on to have a successful career in real estate investing. He was larger than life and had a giving heart, making sure that anyone within arm’s reach was taken care of to the fullest extent. Sadly, in 2011, he was diagnosed with oral cancer and lost his fight in June of 2012 at the age of 28 years old. He lived a full life to have died so young, leaving no stone unturned. Trent lived life just as hard he fought this terrible disease.
What is WOD 4 Trent?
WOD 4 Trent is a fundraiser/competition created in Trent’s memory with 28 of each movement in WOD 1 to honor each year of his life. This year, all of the money raised at WOD 4 Trent will go to Gateway for Cancer Research. Gateway for Cancer Research funds clinical trials for all types of cancer and prioritizes only the most cutting-edge research that can help patients TODAY. Gateway invests in next generation patient-centric cancer research in order to drive transformational advances and breakthroughs in cancer treatment.

How Can You Help?
Cancer has touched so many lives, as and I am sure it has touched someone close to you. WOD 4 Trent is no longer just about Trent. It’s about BEATING CANCER and raising the funds to do so. We have multiple tax-deductible ways for you to participate in the fundraiser. We are looking for donations or items for the 12 podium winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers for men and women, scaled and Rx), as well as items for the silent auction. 100% of our proceeds will go to Gateway for Cancer Research.
Please let me know if you have any questions at all. I am so grateful for your participation and look forward to you being a part of WOD 4 Trent.
