The Williams family is excited to announce that we will be sponsoring the first CrossFit Apex “Bring a Friend” event of the 2015 calendar year.
Please join us in honoring our daughter Emmy Lynn Williams on Saturday, January 10th from 9-11 am with a fun, competitive, beginner-friendly workout to benefit an organization that is close to our family’s heart; Operation Smile. All non-members will be $20 donation, Apex members will use a membership visit along with a donation of your choice. All proceeds will go to operation smile.
Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that performs safe, effective cleft lip and cleft palate surgery, and delivers postoperative and ongoing medical therapies to children in low and middle income countries.
As some of you may know, our daughter Emmy was diagnosed (in utero) with a craniofacial abnormality, more commonly known as cleft lip and palate. While this diagnosis certainly challenged our lives as young parents, we definitely benefitted from a strong support system of family/friends and the services of some of the best pediatric medical facilities in the world at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).
Three years and a few surgeries later, Emmy is a brilliantly energetic toddler who has brought a tremendous amount of strength and resolve to our family.
In return, our family has been active contributors to Operation Smile, making donations in Emmy’s name as often as we can.
It would mean the world to us if you would bring your friends and family out to Apex on the 10th in support of this cause, and our little rascal!
