Everyday Warrior Battle Series

About Everyday Warrior:

At Everyday Warrior we believe in the warrior spirit. That we are surrounded by individuals who when faced with challenges and hardships confront them boldly with courage, vigor and strength. Individuals, Everyday Warriors, who maintain hope and continue to inspire those around them, all while in the midst of the fight for their life. It is these people, these warriors, who we seek to support, encourage and empower.

Their Mission:

Everyday Warrior is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded with the primary mission to financially support, inspire and empower individuals who have been diagnosed with cancer and are currently undergoing treatment.

Their Story:

At age 29 Brittany Gill, avid crossfitter, wife and mother, was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cervical cancer. Within seconds of sharing her diagnosis with her CrossFit community, a fundraiser was planned and she learned firsthand that No One Fights Alone. Brittany has proven time and again that she is a warrior. Fighting bravely and enduring extremely aggressive chemo and radiation treatments all while proving everyone wrong, proving that above all she has more than hope and will survive. Furthermore, she proved that she could do it with a smile on her face and an IV pole over her head.
