Episode 67 of CrossFit Radio aired Wednesday, May 13, 2009 at 6:00 p.m. PDT.
01:43 A special series of audio clips called "The Voices of CrossFit" opened the show. Affiliate owners explained why it is so important to support the CrossFit RRG, a form of self-insurance. Host Justin Judkins announced that CrossFit HQ had contributed $40,000 to the cause. He said affiliates are being asked to contribute $1,000 each and trainers are being asked for $200 each. The money buys an ownership stake in the RRG and a say in how it's run. Most of all it buys protection. Justin said: "If you're sued, the RRG will stand behind you. Guaranteed. We're still about $150,000 short of the $500,000 we need to start the RRG. But we've made tremendous progress is the last two weeks -- raising many thousands of dollars a day. One way or another, we are going to make it." For more information, go to www.crossfitrrg.com
