Crossfit community gets behind hospice
CROSSFITTERS around Ipswich will sweat it out for a good cause this weekend at the annual W.O.D for Harper competition.
The charity event, run two weeks after the Harper James Hockings Swimathon each year, will see couples test their endurance to raise money for Ipswich Hospice in memory of Harper Hockings, who tragically drowned in a backyard pool in 2008.
The warmer weather hasn't deterred participants and all places have now been filled.
However donations are still being accepted.
The Crossfit competition will be held in the parking lot at McMahon's Swim Factory in Woodend from 7.15am.
