  1. We are doing a fund raiser at school called teens for jeans. It can be every size and every color. For every pair that you donate, you can receive a coupon for 25% off a new pair at Aeropostal. A drop box has been placed in front of the white board, where you come in. We have a good chance to win up to 5000$, as we now have a little over 1,100 pair!! Oh, and all the jeans will be given to non-profit organisation in the Moncton community!!! I will pick up the box Thursday at 8pm, so go clean you closet NOW! Thanks!!!

      1. Only denim count for the contest, but all the pants are going back to the community for people in need, so you can give any pants you want

      2. I dropped off two pairs of jeans tonight, I wish I had seen this earlier, I had other pants to give away that weren’t denim!

      It’s always motivating to see someone who’s been doing CrossFit as long as you have still getting PRs! Maybe there’s something to this CrossFit thing after all?
