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!
