Local CrossFitters from Invitto Fitness here in Hackensack came together recently to help Tackle Kids Cancer.  The members of Invitto Fitness, led by Coach Charlie Pacelli, came together to complete a grueling workout including box jumps, rowing, hang cleans, toes to bar, push ups, and push presses, with the goal of completing as many repetitions as possible within 14 minutes.  All of the members who participated solicited sponsors to donate to Tackle Kids Cancer per repetition that they completed.  In all, Invitto Fitness has raised $1,751 to date, which is matched dollar for dollar by Eli Manning of the New York Giants!

One hundred percent of all donations to Tackle Kids Cancer benefit essential clinical care,  support service, and research for pediatric cancer patients.  If you would like to make a donation, you can do so by clicking here!
