Scotty Foundation Giving Tree

“Our core belief is that everyone, regardless of age, can positively impact the life of a child.”

This holiday season BCF is partnering up with the Scotty Foundation to bring toys to children in foster care.

“Each year thousands of children are placed in foster care. Foster parents do receive financial assistance to cover a foster child's basic living necessities, but there are no extra funds given to these families during the holiday season. Not only can this result in a financial hardship for the foster family, it can also deny a child who has known only pain and neglect, the childhood magic of the holidays. The children placed in foster homes may have never opened a gift waiting for them under a tree on Christmas morning. It is through the generosity of others that we are able to support these foster homes/children during the holiday season.”

The week of Thanksgiving our “Giving Tree” will be going up at the box. Tags will be hung from the tree branches with the name of a foster child on one side and their gift suggestion on the other side. Feel free to pick and choose, but please do not take a tag you won’t fulfill. 

The deadline is December 6th.

Once you purchase the item, please do not wrap it, but follow these steps:
  1. Put it in a paper or plastic grocery bag
  2. Affix the gift tag you took from the tree to the bag handles
  3. Put it under the tree (or a TBD location) at the box

We are very excited to have a Christmas tree at the box this year! A few requests- please do not let your children touch the tree or remove anything from it.

‘Yeah Dude Racing’ Toy Drive

‘Yeah Dude Racing’ has placed their annual toy drive box out at BCF for the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. The donation box is already under the computer near the front door - please leave your gift(s) unwrapped. A wish list is taped to the front of the box. 

Deadline is December 19.

November Athlete of the Month- Kevin Hindal

Tell us a little about yourself and family- Hobbies, interests, where
you grew up, occupation, etc.

I grew up on a small farm in Minnesota. I joined the US Marines Corps after high school and served twelve years. After the Marines I earned an electronics degree and have been working for Nikon Precision at Intel for 19+ years. During my first year in the Marines I married my high school sweetheart and have been married 35 years. Mary and I have a son, daughter, and three grandkids with another on the way. I like to hike, ride bicycles, camp, play with grandkids, and do whatever my wife tells me. (happy wife, happy life)

How did you hear about BCF and what made you want to join?

I belonged to another CrossFit box and felt I needed a change. I thought about a couple different places, but after talking to Sarah, I decided to try BCF out. I liked it from day 1 and am glad I switched. I love how the classes are run, the coaches, and the community. I even like it when Ally “yells” at me when I am screwing up.

What motivates you to come to the box week after week?

It’s a cult so I have to go! 

What are your goals? Personal, professional, and/or athletic?

My main goal with CrossFit is to maintain/improve my health.

What is your favorite lift, movement or WOD? Least Favorite?

Favorite movement is overhead squats. I have been working very hard on my mobility and OHS are a great way to test my mobility. Least favorite is burpees. Buck Furpees!

What is your proudest CF moment?

I was doing "Age Is Just a Number" competition as an individual and during a particular workout I thought I wasn’t going to complete the workout. I even started to think about not trying my best so I
wouldn’t have to complete it. With some encouragement from my judge I finally started to move faster and not give in to the idea that I wasn’t going to finish. I finished the workout and it felt so good to not have given up and really push myself through the workout.

What is one tip you would give someone who is interested in CrossFit or new to CrossFit?

Learn how to do the movements correctly and don’t think you have to do Rx weight every time.

Biggest impact CrossFit has made in your life?

My health is better both physically and mentally.
