On Thanksgiving morning, CrossFit Springfield held the 5K Gone Bird event and participants donated $2,000 to benefit the H.A.Y. Foundation in remembrance of Landon Potts. Landon helped build the outdoor arena and put up hay at Laurel Arena.
As a result of this donation, 5 local children will be able to participate in the 8 week Horsemanship Lesson Program in 2017 in Landon’s memory. The HAY Foundation would like to express our sincere appreciation to Chance and Sherry Potts and the owners of CrossFit Springfield, Grant & Melissa Wistrom and Jeremy & Jenny Mhire for selecting the HAY Foundation as the benefactor of their philanthropic efforts. A thank you note will be sent to CrossFit Springfield from each of the 5 children who benefit from the generosity of the many donors who gave monetary gifts on Thanksgiving. The HAY Foundation is thankful for each of these donors as we strive to help children in our community.
