We're pretty proud of our CFQ crew, and we're constantly gushing about their successes.  We've seen first unassisted pull-ups, ladies with 200 lb. Deadlifts, monsters with 300+ lb. Back Squats...all kinds of amazing accomplishments.  We're like Italian grandmothers when bragging about how amazing our members are. It's not just in the gym either!  They're awesomeness continues outside of our four walls.

This weekend, two of our members are participating in two separate, but equally amazing events.

Jason is taking on his first Century Ride - a 100mile/160km ride - and aiming to complete it in 6 hours.  He is participating in the Ride for Karen, and racking up the kms to raise money to send kids with cancer to camp.  Please consider helping Jason reach his fundraising goal by donating at http://my.e2rm.com/personalPage.aspx?SID=2694116

Laura, aka SuperMom, is participating in the Weekend to End Women's Cancer.  This is Laura's 3rd year participating in the two day, 60 km walk.  Proceeds from her efforts will benefit The Campbell Family Institute at The Princess Margaret, funding important cancer research, education, services and care that will not only benefit those suffering from breast cancer, but all women's cancers.  Please consider helping Laura in her fundraising by donating at:   http://www.endcancer.ca/site/TR/Events/Toronto2010?px=1812606&pg=personal&fr_id=1440
