**** PBing for Charity at Dragon CrossFit for August****
This is a charity that one of our longest serving Dragons, Gwennan Thomas is heavily involved with. We would like us all to show as much support as possible to Gwen and Alopecia UK this month.
Alopecia (hair loss), although not life-threatening, effects 1.7% of the population and can lead to profound emotional stress and reduced self-esteem. Many doctors feel helpless when dealing with patients with alopecia as there are few effective, safe treatments available.
Alopecia can be psychologically damaging, causing intense emotional suffering and can lead to personal, social and work related problems. Alopecia UK provides much needed information and support which can play a key role in increasing confidence and a better quality of life. The charity is run by volunteers with very little funding.

Plan of attack……
This month Dragon CrossFit will donate 50p to Alopecia UK every time a Dragon accomplishes a Personal Best (great idea Kirtsy McCaig!) this must be written on the PB Board and shared on your Facebook Status along with tagging DC in it. We would like to request that the Dragon achieving the PB donates 50p to Alopecia UK also.
Having had some cracking fundraising ideas for this month, we plan on utilizing these events throughout the month of August! Lets get PB’ing Dragons!!
