43 Burpees – one for every year that he was alive. 1 Mile Run – Scott would talk about how he used to hate running so much but after losing his balance and ability to run – all he wanted to do was run.

After doing CrossFit for several years Scott Serene was diagnosed with terminal glioblastoma multiforme (brain cancer) in March of 2014. Scott wanted to find a way to use his passion for CrossFit to raise awareness and give back to the brain cancer community.
From this the idea Kettlebells for Brain Cells (KB4BC) - a fundraising competition hosted at Hill Country CrossFit - was born. In March of 2015 Scott was diagnosed with a second brain tumor, this time on the brain stem and inoperable.
In June of 2015 Scott was able to see his dream become a reality when the inaugural Kettlebells for Brain Cells event took place. With an amazing show of support, Scott was able to raise $5,000 for American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA).
