Hotshot 19 Memorial WOD and Fundraiser


This week my son and daughter participated in a fund-raiser selling raffle tickets to support the families of the 19 firefighters who were killed in the Arizona wildfires. Members of the CrossFit community pitched in to help, and to participate in a memorial WOD to remember the men who lost their lives. Unfortunately my daughter could not do the WOD because she was under the weather with a cold, but my son completed the entire WOD.
"Hotshot 19"
6 Rounds
30 squats
19 power cleans (Rx was 95#, he used 55#)
7 pullups
Run 400 m
time: 54:13
I am so proud of his determination and commitment to completing a very difficult WOD which, practically speaking, was not scaled for the kids at all. They did the same moves and the same number of reps as the adults.

It was amazing to see such a well-organized community effort go towards helping these families who are mourning the loss of husbands, fathers, brothers and friends. Our CrossFit Kids raised $2,200 to support this cause, and you can still donate at the website here. CrossFit corporate broadcast the community workout that was held in the hometown of these men. You can watch it here, but be forewarned, you will need a tissue or two or three.
