Honor the fallen hero’s! A hero WOD is a special workout in our community. It gives us a chance to recognize those who protect us everyday and give us the opportunity to live free! These workouts give us the opportunity to come together as a family and honor those the best way that we know how, through hard work! Stay strong!
Dedicated to Chad Michael Wilkinson of the US Navy who died on October 29, 2018, in Virginia Beach on active duty after 22 years of service.
On December 14, 2018, CrossFit Games Director, Dave Castro @thedavecastro posted this workout in memory of Wilkinson, who was a friend. Castro said, "A few weeks ago we lost an American hero. A friend of mine and someone I worked with when I was in the Navy. At his funeral his wife mentioned that he did 1,000 step ups for time with a 45 pound pack on a 20” box to train for climbing Mt Aconcagua. Tonight I did this workout with @jameshobart@apbozman and @jimi.letchford. We did it as a celebration of his life and to honor his memory. If you are looking for something to do this weekend give this one a go and keep Chad in mind."
