D10 Decathlon...

I participated in a decathlon (10 events) in Cambridge on Saturday July 22 as part of a team. The D10's 10 events which are (in order): 400m run, Football throw, Pull-ups, 40yd dash, Dips, 500m row, Vertical jump, 20yd shuttle sprint, Bench Press, 800m run. I did my best.
My friend Bryan's 8 year daughter Alexa was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on July 29th 2016. In his own words: ''Alexa has been doing fantastic and fighting hard through her treatments. I know that all of my training won't compare with how much she has had and will have to endure until September of 2018 when her treatment is targeted to end. I will give it all I've got for her on July 22nd. #LexiStrong

We raised $30,000!
