Lift 4 Liz

It’s an annual practice here at CrossFit York to draw on our amazing athletes to help out the community. We’ve held fundraisers for everything from the Children’s Home of York to the efforts to fight testicular cancer.

For this Thanksgiving holiday, it’s no different. On Black Friday (November 28th) at 10:00am, we’ll hold a fundraising workout to contribute to the Lift for Liz cause. Liz Custer is a local mother of four who in late 2013 was diagnosed with colon cancer. It has since expanded to her ovaries and other areas. She is receiving chemotherapy treatments, surgery, and general care at Penn Hospital in Philadelphia, PA. Her husband Isaac, who is the brother of CrossFit Hershey co-owner Caitlin Steel, has had to resign from his coaching position in order to better care for her and their children.

Proceeds from this WOD will contribute directly to the Custer’s medical expense account.
