CrossFit Uprising has set up a Memorial WOD and a Fundraiser for the family of Phoenix Firefighter Bradley Harper. It will be June 1st. Please go to the following link http://www.crossfituprising.com/bradley-harper-memorial-wod.html and either donate to the cause or let’s take a group of people out there and represent Forever Strong and the Firefighters we have in house here. The early time slot is almost full so if we are going to go let’s choose the 10-12 time slot and all be there at the same time.
The following is from their website about the event:
“CrossFit is known for the closeness it creates through each community. Early Sunday morning on May 19, 2013 we lost a member of our community much too soon.
23-year-old Phoenix Firefighter and CFU member Bradley Harper had just finished fighting a mulch fire in south Phoenix Saturday night, when a fire truck and ambulance tried to pass each other on a narrow road. Harper, who was taking off his gear at the time, found himself pinned between the two vehicles. He later died at St. Joseph’s hospital.
We have created a special WOD that we are hosting at the gym Saturday June 1, 2013 to honor his memory. We are expecting a big turnout and are going to set two different arrival times, Please sign up below and use the Buy Now link to donate online. We will also be hosting a BBQ. Registration is $25 and includes a Memorial Brad Harper t-shirt made by Designed in Ink. If you would like to make an additional donation please use the Donate link or cash/check donations can be made at CFU. All proceeds will go to Brad’s family to help through these tough times.”
