How can I follow Dylan, Eric, Brock, Jonathan, Forrest, Noah and Cam?
They will document their journey across the nation by updating a blog a few times a day via Facebook and Twitter (facebook.com/road2thecure, @SeeFit2012). In addition, they will be filming a documentary recording their experiences.
What will they be doing at each stop?
The stops at each gym will revolve around boxes programming a “WOD” (workout of the day) dedicated to the cause: SeeFit- a fundraiser that benefits the Vision for Tomorrow Foundation, in which 100% of all proceeds go towards research for the cure of congenital visual impairments. The Vision for Tomorrow Foundation is a non-profit 501c3 organization that is directly connected to SeeFit.
Dylan, Noah, Brock, and Cam ask that the CrossFitters working out give it everything they’ve got, in honor of those living with this type of visual impairment. While there, they will explain some of the diseases and conditions, SeeFit and what the trip is about, their story, and how people can get more involved to raise funds to find the cure that is just on the horizon!
On select box visits, they will be hosting “mini” CrossFit competitions that are station-based. This is another great opportunity to match and compare yourself to some local CrossFitters, help the cause, and have a fun time doing it.
What gyms and cities will they be visiting?

Where their final destination?
The trip culminates at the CrossFit National Games on the weekend of July 13th, 2012, where they will be again spreading about this wonderful fundraiser, and how they can combat conditions that cause visual impairments.
