Sunday's WOD: In memory of "Snipes"

April 8, 2018

Thanks to everyone who came out to our movie night! We are all now super motivated for our Sunday WODs! Tomorrow is a very special day as we will be showing our love and remembrance for Officer Christine Braswell with a Hero WOD in her honor. Officer Braswell was not only a much loved member of our CFD community, but also a decorated officer of the Delray Beach Police Department and the only female sniper in all of Palm Beach County. Officer Braswell's life was taken one year ago on April 8, 2017 in a tragic motor vehicle accident while she was taking a much earned vacation in the keys. Christine, we miss you dearly and hold our hearts high as we do this hero WOD in your honor tomorrow <3 "Snipes" will be programmed for the 10am CrossFit class tomorrow.

Delray Beach Police Officer and SWAT Team member, Christine Braswell, was hit and killed in a motor vehicle accident while enjoying a well-earned vacation with another officer in the Keys.


Officer Braswell was airlifted to the Ryder Trauma Center where she passed surrounded by the love and care of her parents, her DBPD family and many heartbroken friends, on the evening of Saturday April 8th, 2017.


Hired by DBPD in 2005, Officer Braswell was masterful at her job and dedicated to her community. She was a member of the S.W.A.T. Team and was the only female S.W.A.T. sniper in all of Palm Beach County. She shared her passion for law enforcement as a field training officer for new officers, as a police academy instructor at Broward College and as a mentor for the Delray Beach Police Explorers.


Braswell aka “Snipes” embodied what the CrossFit community is all about. She was the person who stayed with you and encouraged you to finish the workout, counting all your reps, even when everyone else was already done. She was an instant friend with an infectious smile, always joking around and having fun. She was someone you looked forward to seeing each and every day, whether it be for the WOD, a double WOD, or her favorite class – stretching!


Officer Braswell had served with the Delray Beach Police Department for 12 years. She is survived by her parents.
