We've got a special Memorial WOD for our stamina Wednesday tomorrow. In August 2017, CrossFit Reform in Rancho Santa Margarita "lost an integral part of our community, Jerry “The Bawz” Ray. Jerry brightened up the room with his smile and genuinely loving personality, and was always a pleasure to be around." - CrossFit Reform (Rancho Santa Margarita, CA)
This workout was posted by @fortyqfit, with the caption, "Jerry was a member of our box who passed away too soon. I try to remind myself that you never know the burden someone else bears. The demons they struggle with. Be kind to each other. Reach out to your friends and check on them. You never know when your sincere “how are you doing? I care about you” will make the difference."
This memorial WOD hits close to home as we also lost a very special member of our CFD community last year. Many of you know Andrew Wright, or better known as "Android" at the box. Andrew had been a member at CFD for over 2 years, during which time he touched many of our lives with his positive attitude, friendly smile, and outgoing personality. He was very involved in our social circles at CFD and always had a smile on his face. It really goes to show you that you never know what someone is going through. It comes with great sadness to say that we lost Andrew in September of last year at the young age of 40. We will never forget the good times we had with Andrew both in and out of the gym. We miss him greatly and will be doing a memorial WOD to commemorate him soon. It will be called "Android" and contributions will be accepted for the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention.
