WOD For a Hero

On October 23rd, 2012 Police Officer Artie Lopez was killed in the line of duty. Artie was a member of our community at Crossfit Merrick. On December 1st, Crossfit Merrick is hosting WOD for a Hero with all proceeds being donated to Artie's family.

If you are in the Long Island area and would like to come WOD with us please visit: http://wodforahero.eventbrite.com (SFW). I'll be one of the coaches on staff in the morning to mid-afternoon and would love to meet anyone from these boards

You can read more on the tragedy surrounding Artie's death here: http://articles.nydailynews.com/2012...-man-blind-guy (SFW)

Re: WOD For a Hero

We did Fran. There is a little bit of a back story, when Artie first joined Fran was his first benchmark WOD and he finished it in 4:41 Rx. At the time he could not yet kip, so he did the whole workout with strict pull ups. We had quite a few times better than 4:41, but no one was brave enough to try it with strict pull ups

HOLY COW

Thats an awesome time not only for a first time but strict pull ups, very impressive.

Again, sorry to hear about him though. Are you going to make a memorial WOD for him other than Fran?

Re: WOD For a Hero

I believe our box owners are talking to CF people about creating a hero wod in his honor. From what they've told me it's a pretty in-depth process.
