We also invite EVERY BOX out there to do “DT for Ditano” on this date and help us raise funds for this 2011 Games Competitor, well known local competitor, Regionals judge, Coach and Co-Owner of CrossFit 508.

It may be hard for anyone to imagine Dawn Ditano needing help from anyone. Especially since she is the first person we all go to for help.

On July 10th, Dawn was diagnosed with a highly aggressive form of lung cancer.
Although she has been told that a cure is unlikely, Dawn has not once let her determination waiver. She is fighting like hell to stay as strong as possible and is still making wise ass comments (or Ditano-isms) to everyone including her nurses and doctors.

This news has hit a great many in the Crossfit community hard.

We at Crossfit 508 are amazed and comforted by the out pouring of support by our community. We thank you all.

We would also like to give a Giant Thank You to Coach Greg Glassman.

On July 12th we reached out to Coach and on July 14th he was by Dawn’s side giving her a pep talk. I am not still not sure who was happier to meet who. They have become fast friends.

Please join us on on August 15th. Do “DT” in honor of one of Crossfit’s finest and donate what ever you can.
