Crossfit Indestri is a unique little gym that believes in Community. There is a unique and longstanding relationship with Crossfit Indestri and the fight against Cancer, most notably Breast Cancer.
To fill you in on a bit of the gym’s history, one of the gym owners Stouty lost his mother, to breast cancer. Scott Thornton’s (the founder of the gym) mother-in-law successfully battled Breast Cancer during his time on Battle of the Blades and Tyson’s (former owner) mother also successfully battled breast cancer along with my mother-in-law Ann Chisholm who has been part of our Fit for Life Program. I know many of you have been touched by cancer as well.
For several years Crossfit Indestri has entered a team in the Run for the Cure and has held many fundraising events raising over $100,000 towards creating a future without breast cancer.
Now one of Indestri’s community members, Narda Hunt, is battling Breast Cancer for the second time in her life and her family has reached out to the community of Crossfit Indestri and the community of Collingwood to ask for help and support.
