What can you say about 2020?

"It’s in these times when we rise together. In these times we stay the course, we lean on each other and we help our brothers! There is light at the end of this tunnel men and as we are STRONGER TOGETHER we will get there together!" - Roach Coach, 09.26.20 3YR F3 Naperville Anniversary Convergence


YEP. If you read that right, it's the exact same quote from our previous newsletter, but it's never been more fitting to sum up 2020. It's been quite a ride this year for F3 Naperville, and it would be nigh impossible to sum up all the great and challenging things that have happened. But here are just a few:

 

  • Opened 2 New AO's (Launchpad and Virtuosity) and launched Black Diamond boot camps
  • Celebrated the life of Noonan, our brother, whom we lost too soon. He'll never be forgotten and his impact to F3 Naperville will live on. 
  • Closed AO's due to pandemic shelter in place orders, March 17. Migrated all workouts to virtual. 
  • Smattering of much needed virtual happy hours.
  • Successfully reopened May 17. 
  • Launched F3 Concierge Services
  • Fostered and helped launch the Crossroads and Tri-County regions
  • Took down F3 Louisville TWICE in regional competitions (most posts in a week and most miles posted in a single day)
  • Increased average daily numbers from 63 to over 100 daily PAX ITG (Dec '19 - Dec '20)
  • Lincoln Games. Nuff Said.
  • First ever F3 Naperville Golf Outing.
  • IRONPAX (when you're last year's champion...)
  • Sasquatch (Won it).
  • GrowRuck 21 (Louisville)
  • 3YR Anniversary (Sept 16)
  • 2nd Annual F3 Foundation 5k
  • F324 Raised over $11,000 for Big Brother Big Sisters, West Suburban Community Pantry, and Family Shelter Services
  • Successfully transitioned in the new LT 4.0 leadership team. 


While we list some of the memories from the year (and so many more not mentioned!) we also acknowledge that the lives changed, both within the men of F3 Naperville and the surrounding communities, is what matters most. Thank you to you all for being a part of F3 Naperville this year. Looking forward to seeing in the gloom in the next one!

~ LT 4.0


F324 A HUGE SUCCESS

WHAT HAPPENED:  24 workouts. 24 Hours. MASSIVE FUNDRAISER. #Live3rd. And Goldberg and Babyhands posted at every. single. one. of. them. 

WHERE IT HAPPENED:  Workouts occurred at an AO near you!

WHEN IT HAPPENED:  Saturday, November 28th, 2020

WHY:  Because you over-indulged on Thanksgiving, want to do some good, & it’s a CSAUP event! #IronSharpensIron and Science tells us that doing CSAUP events together forges bonds stronger than Iron.

HOW IT HAPPENED: The call was made by F3 Cherokee, and the PAX of F3 Naperville answered!!! $10k+ will be going directly to Family Shelter Service, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Will & Grundy Counties, and West Suburban Community Pantry!! What a fantastic story to be able to share about what we do here in F3 Naperville!

Helping others is what we do but how great to be doing so during this holiday season in one of the strangest years we’ve lived through. We’re privileged to have a direct impact on those that need help and support right here in our backyards…Families that turn to FSS for help and safety from DV incidents, young kids that don’t have a mentor or leader in their life until they get wrapped up in BBBS, people of all walks of life that may have nowhere to turn to for food but a food pantry like WSCP.
 
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone who put in so much time, effort, and literal sweat to making this happen. Truly epic.

Concierge Services Continues to Explode with Service!
 

F3 Naperville created a free, personalized, homebound concierge service to grocery shop, pickup prescriptions, and provide other services for those in need in our communities.










We've been privileged to serve West Suburban Community Pantry, Will County Senior Services, and Loaves and Fishes with food donations and food drop off. The support is amazing and we're honored to serve! 


And coming soon - 4 K.I.D.S Sake and Hesed House!


Reach out to your local senior communities, your churches and pastors. If you or someone you know needs assistance, please don’t hesitate to pass on the contact information:

Passing The Leadership Flag


LT Flag Pass 12.2020

As this year comes to a close, it is with a full hearts, deepest gratitude, and great excitement we announce the “flag passing” for our leadership roles of Weasel Shaker, 1st F, 2nd F, 3rd F, and Growth Q!

Our LT 3.0 obviously faced unprecedented challenges this year. The hard work and sacrifices of the men in these roles to ensure our region's continued acceleration despite those obstacles must be recognized! 

Our Weasel Shaker Leuben not only led amazing growth within our systems, he did so while fluidly changing with our needs through a shut down, a nationally recognized virtual launch and our own restart... all while supporting the creation, development and launch of two new regions – Crossroads and Tri-County! Leuben will support Goldberg as he assumes this role for LT 4.0

LT 3.0’s 1st F Shandy maintained acceleration within all our PAX despite the polarizing differences within the ranks! He led, grew and educated our SiteQ Team to be stronger than ever, all while insuring the primary goal of sustaining extremely hard workouts was maintained! Shandy passes his flag to Tonka!

2nd F Q Curds faced unique challenges in figuring out how to keep the fellowship of PAX moving during a pandemic and lack of proximity. The ol' FnB Director was up to the challenge, pulling off virtual happy hours, poker nights, golf outings, and even tricked one unfortunate PAX into performing 1000 burpees in a day. All while keeping it safe. Curds' legacy is now passed on to Rusty!

Mr. Miyagi, our 3rd F Q conquered inconceivable personal health challenges this year. Battling through open heart surgery then recovering through the pandemic only to be forced to overcome thyroid cancer. Despite all, he still orchestrated several fundraisers for Feed My Starving Children, grew our Q Source to 3 locations and supported Seabiscuit as he navigated the challenges for our 2nd Annual 5k! Our new 3rd F Q is Ronda Rousey and he will continue his already outstanding work in this vital part of our region!

LT 3.0's Growth Q was Trickle. In addition to launching 3 new AO's at The Ridge, Iron Lion and The Launch Pad, he was also instrumental supporting the creation and launch of the Crossroads Region. Our LT 4.0 Growth Q is Flush!



As we look forward with hope to the new year, please join us in recognizing these men with gratitude for those that served, support for those assuming new roles and most importantly, love for them all!!!


F3 TRI-COUNTY LAUNCHED!


Growth and acceleration are part of F3 and due to the overwhelming expansion through Virtuosity, F3 Naperville is proud to support the regional expansion of F3 Tri-County in Minier, IL. 

With a little EH back in May of 2020, the advantage of Virtuosity to bring proximity when none was easily available, lots of FNG’s, and a little push off the ledge, we’re proud to announce F3 Tri-County! Today, F3 TRI-COUNTY is the only F3 Region between Chicago area Crossroads and St. Louis. 

The growth doesn’t stop there. The launch planted new seeds in Bloomington, Peoria, Springfield, Decatur and Champaign. With FNG’s from Bloomington and surrounding areas we’re truly partners in planting and growing small workout groups for the invigoration of male leadership in the community.
