Who We Are


Our kids, family, and friends are under attack. The number of people DYING FROM OVERDOSES now EXCEEDS THE NUMBER OF DEATHS FROM CAR ACCIDENTS. On any day, 80,000 teenagers are in rehab. 42% of drug-related arrests in Louisiana included individuals under the age of 18.

Why I Fight

I myself have had to fight the fight. My husband, a veteran, has had a very hard battle with drug addition. This battle was not only difficult for him, but devastating for our family, to say the least. Fortunately, God found my husband, and he is now in a program called, Teen Challenge. Which despite the name is a faith based organization that helps adults, teens, and families get their lives back.  During the worst of it, I clung to my faith, and my fitness. I have been doing CrossFit for about five years, and I now own CrossFit Affiliate in Leesville, LA. Fight for Five originated to help give back and bring CrossFit, Faith, and Fitness to the forefront as an outlet to help those battling addiction.  We are holding our annual Fight for Five CrossFit Competition in Alexandria, Louisiana May 13-14, 2017 at the Rapides Parish Coliseum. This competition will raise awareness, promote CrossFit, and raise funds for the Louisiana Adult & Teen Challenge.  Will you join the fight with me?
