One... Two... Three... 152!!!

"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

OH MAN has it been a stellar, eye opening CRAZY two months for F3 Naperville as we've stepped into a chilly Fall. 

  1. The number of posts an FNG has to make to get named and become part of the brotherhood of F3! 
  1. The number of NEW regions spawned since the Pandemic from F3 Naperville - Crossroads, and coming soon F3 Tri-County!
  1. The number of years F3 Naperville has been around, taking names and changing lives.
  1. The number of meals and deliveries Concierge Services has made since August 18 to families, donors, and folks in need. (121 meals delivered in a single day!)

Check out the busyness that's been everything F3:

August 15 - Cross Region Competition Triatholon
August 18 - TODAY - 232 Meals/Deliveries by Concierge Services
August 23 - Beer Ruck
August 29 - F3 Crossroads official launch
August 30 - September 26 - IRON PAX Challenge
September 11 - Naperville Park District Cleanup
September 12 - Poker night
September 26 - 3YR Anniversary F3 Naperville 

As we move further into the gloom with the fading morning light... keep on moving. It's always a race!

Why do we call it G2? Cause that's what F3 calls Information. Read on for this months Information!


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 now Loaves and Fishes with food donations and food drop off. The support is amazing and we're honored to serve! 

Check out some of the highlights from September:

  • The service made 19 total individual food runs to guests for the month.  This was just under double the amount of deliveries made in August!

  • We began our partnership with Loaves and Fishes and Happy Meal filled our very first volunteer pick/pack shift on 9/3!  He continues to donate his time now regularly to the pantry!!  Thanks to Goldberg for filling the second volunteer opportunity! This is an ongoing endeavor (1st and 3rd Thursday morning each month) now with the pantry due to the successful lunch with these HIMs!

  • The West Suburban Community Pantry needed help with deliveries for their Culinary fundraiser and we Made it Happen!!  The following HIMs delivered 121 meals from local fine dining establishments (also donated) to 13 separate donors for this event.  A special thank you again to Aladdin Wham Mr. Nice Guy Boxcutter Hootie Marla Hooch TBD Goldberg Twilight House Arrest At At and Radio Flyer!!  The virtual live auction portion of this event raised over $70,000 for the pantry!

  • The following HIMs made deliveries during the month to guests as well.  Many of them for the first time!  Thank you Giggles, Belichick, Buttermaker, Wine in A Box, Hootie, House Arrest, Ebeneezer, and Aladdin!!

We hear nothing but praise from the various contacts I speak with from both Loaves and Fishes and the WSCP about the fine HIMs they meet from F3.  Way to represent F3 Naperville and live 3rd brothers!

F3 Foundation is hosting the Give2Give fundraiser to benefit it’s mission in October.
If you have not heard the Roundtable or COT Podcasts, please take a listen for deeper dive.


The big picture:

The F3 Foundation can not scale in it’s current form and support the pax of F3 Nation. Our goal is to make the F3 Foundation a professionally run foundation for several reasons:

1. Need to raise money for the pax so they can accelerate their impact on their communities and not waste a ton of time raising money.

2. Build a “resume” of what the result of “invigoration of male community leadership looks like. Compile all the impact F3 pax has done in their respective communities. (eg. Disaster Ops, Men's Shelter, etc).

3. Establish national F3 projects and leverage size of F3 Nation to take advantage of best practices and experience.

To accomplish this aggressive mission and to continue to scale the Foundation with F3 Nation, it will require professional leadership. We have so many amazing volunteers but it will take time and experience so we need to go out and hire a director. Then the director will go out under the guidance of the F3 Nation board and enable the Foundation to accomplish the mission.

Give2Give 2020:

Our goal is to raise over $200,000.00 in October. The proceeds will go to the F3 Foundation for the following:

1. Hire and establish a professional director to lead Foundation

2. Continue to fund F3 Expansion and Truebadore Program

3. Build a general fund to be able to make grants to existing F3 Regions

IRON PAX 2020!!

After four hellish weeks of crazy awesome hard workouts... Naperville pulled out a stunning 399 workouts completed!! Congrats to ROACH COACH for finishing 3rd in the NATION for the RESPECT crew!

Tough year - lots of new competitors putting up impossible times... but we all got stronger for it!!


The price of admission of F3 is taking on the leadership of a workout - TIME TO Q. This is where we apply the learnings of accelerating. If you haven't yet signed up to Q, and you're looking to post up your VQ (Virgin Q) - get in touch with a PAX who you see lead regularly. 

Stay safe, stay healthy, and don't get up for easy.
