On Nov. 3, CrossFit Los Altos and Focused Individual Trainers hosted its annual Fight Gone Bad fundraiser workout to support the efforts of U.S. Pain Foundation. A total of 45 athletes participated, raising more than $22,000 to support two recently held patient education days in Chicago and Boston and an upcoming support group leader weekend training.

The fundraiser is a organized by Rick Dyer, director of CrossFit Los Altos, in honor of his wife Nicole Hemmenway, interim CEO of U.S. Pain Foundation. Hemmenway lives with complex regional sympathetic disorder.

“When I think back on everything she has been through – and we have been through together – I am so thankful because she had access to all forms of therapies and treatments,” says Dyer in a message on his FirstGiving page. “Sadly, this is not the case for the majority of people living with chronic pain and rare conditions.”
