Today’s workout is a tribute to a brave little girl from our extended CrossFit family. Ellie Walton battled brain cancer for her whole childhood, sadly losing her life one month ago. During her short time with us, she underwent 17 brain surgeries, 26 rounds of chemotherapy, and 42 days of radiation. She was only 4 years old.
Ellie’s smile and perseverance was and will always be an inspiration to everyone that had the privilege of knowing her, and also to many people she never even met. Today and this weekend, CrossFitters from all over our state will be coming together to complete a workout in Ellie’s honor. If you’d like to do a little more by supporting Ellie’s family as they confront 4 years of medical expenses, you can do so by purchasing a custom beanie at https://www.imprintmakeyourmark.org/.
