 CrossFit isn’t just a fitness program. It’s a program that brings great people together. Together we suffer the same failures and weaknesses. We rejoice in each other’s small victories and we lend a hand and show support when needed. Well this is a time that I feel compelled to show one of our members that we all care. Some of you know Cathy Julius. She is a frequent flyer in the afternoon classes.  On December 2nd, 1992 Cathy gave birth to a beautiful baby girl “Sarah Avery”. As Sarah Avery grew she loved to play Ring Around Rosy and she loved sunflowers. On June 18th 1994 Sarah Avery became sick and unfortunately for Cathy and the rest of their family, God needed her more with Him. She passed due to an irreversible illness. Let us honor both Sarah Avery and Cathy today with this WOD.

Cathy set up a charitable foundation in honor of Sarah Avery. Anyone wishing to donate any amount of money to this foundation just give it to the trainer coaching and it will be handed over to Cathy. Thank you in advance

What a tribute. That is why I love Crossfit. We band together in each other's pain as well as our joys and hold each other up. That's what Cathy does and our turn to do it for her. Hugs to Cathy!

Once again I am humbled. There are stories behind each and every one of us, some stories are full of pain and sadness and some stories are full of joy. Thank you for reminding me of that....Cathy, I have no words. She was beautiful.

All of us that know Cathy know what a special person she is. We all know how special she makes each of us feel. I think it's awesome that we are doing this WOD in honor of her precious daughter. I also think it's awesome that Lee and Jen always manage to take care of one of their own...always!
