3rd Annual SUBWAY BEAST MODE CHALLENGE, a family festival to celebrate Marshawn Lynch and FAM 1st FAMILY FOUNDATION on Saturday, July 30 at Swan Creek Park in Tacoma, WA. The festival site will include interactive games and activities for the entire family featuring an adventure course with 12 football-themed obstacles to challenge participants’ INNER BEAST MODE regardless of skill level and athleticism. Obstacles will include “Find the Crease” – just like Marshawn did to defensive lines his entire career; “Training Camp” – run the 40, hit the tackling dummies, run the tires; “Coach’s Playbook X’s & O’s” – over the X’s, thru the O’s, “BEAST QUAKES 2.0” inspired by Marshawn’s legendary runs against the Saints in 2011 and 2014’s run against the Cardinals, and of course – the return of the “Skittles Ball Pit”!
“You don’t feel in Beast Mode, it feels you” Marshawn Lynch, Skittles interview, January 2015. Beast Mode is a state of mind, an inner super strength that allows you to move faster, jump higher, lift more and extend yourself past what you thought was humanly possible. It is a Superhuman state in which the raw animal.. beastlike instincts take over the mind and body. There is only one BEAST MODE and it isn’t in the way you play the game, hit the ball, or score a touchdown. It’s who you are, it’s how you’re built, it’s part of your genetic makeup, it’s a lifestyle. Marshawn Lynch thrilled us on the football field, now show him what you’ve got on the obstacle course AND support his foundation: The Fam 1st Family Foundation.
Marshawn Lynch hung up his football cleats in February but he continues to support the community through his foundation, Fam 1st Family Foundation as well as recent trips to Haiti with Free the Children to help rebuild an elementary school, and to Egypt with American Football Without Borders. The 3rd Annual SUBWAY BEAST MODE CHALLENGE will again raise much needed funds to support the foundation’s mission of empowerment and education, aiming to build self-esteem and academic learning skills in underprivileged youth.
