9am – 12pm

CrossFit Haywood in Waynesville, NC

A fundraising event to help the Holloway family raise funds for their upcoming adoption.


The owners of CrossFit Haywood (Brandon and Jenny Holloway) have been wanting to adopt for a long time, and add a little girl to their family of 2 boys (Kale and Easton).
The cost of this adoption is very expensive, about $30,000. The CrossFit community is always quick to come together to help each other, and this is one of those opportunities.

National Adoption Day is November 23, which makes that the perfect date for the Adding Arrows Adoption WOD. You can participate at Crossfit Haywood or your own gym.

If you are local, come to the WOD at CrossFit Haywood. We have an all-day fundraising event planned, with lots of fun activities starting with the WOD from 9am-12pm, with BBQ from 11am-6pm, specialty desserts, coffee, Silent Auction from 4-6pm, bon fire, etc. To see full details of the day and to keep up to date, visit our Instagram page (@adding_arrows)

This is great “bring a friend” type WOD for Saturday mornings at your gym. Grab a friend, introduce them to CrossFit and have fun supporting a great cause!

ALL proceeds of this fundraiser will go to the Holloways for the adoption! The suggested donation is $50 to participate (which includes a shirt), however any amount will be greatly appreciated (especially anything greater than $50!).

The easiest way to donate is through the registration form below. Additionally, cash or checks payable to Brandon and Jenny Holloway can be hand-delivered at CF Haywood, or mailed to this address:

Brandon & Jenny Holloway
11 Edmund Place
Waynesville NC 28786

If you want to support the cause, but do not want to do the workout, please stop by CrossFit Haywood on the November 23 for other fun activities that will be announced later on!

The goal is for this to be a nationwide event, helping raise awareness of the importance of adoption. If you are not local to Waynesville, NC, but want to participate, please free to do this WOD at your own gym and spread the word about adoption!


Your $50 suggested donation will include a cool Adding Arrows Adoption WOD tri-blend t-shirt.

Register by November 18 to receive your t-shirt on the day of the event. Registrations after November 18 will receive your t-shirt after the event.

Additional Adding Arrows t-shirts can be ordered for $20 in advance. Email Mike to order one.

If you need a shirt shipped, email Mike to set up those details and find out the additional shipping charge.
