Red Deer’s crossfit community is helping out one of its own with a Fight Gone Bad workout scheduled for July 13.

Everyone is invited to participate in the workout and all fitness levels are welcomed. The event is in support of Jeff Sagan, a Red Deer man who was badly injured in a two-vehicle collision while riding his motorcycle in May in Red Deer.

Sagan has undergone several surgeries since the collision and is rehabilitating in hospital in Red Deer. The event begins at 10 a.m. (at No. 3 5551 45th St.) and is expected to wrap up late afternoon.

A donation of $10 is requested for the workout. There will be door prizes and a cash barbecue following the workout.

All proceeds will go to the Sagan family. The fundraiser is being hosted by Ignite Fitness/CrossFit Red Deer.
