I was lucky enough to be able to attend the Alexis’ Dream fundraising strollathon this past weekend and meet some of the families that will hopefully benefit from the funds raised at our recent Fight Gone Bad event.
I was deeply moved by the strength and courage that these loving families displayed and most of all the incredible hope to someday find a cure and prevention for Rett Syndrome. Angela Herrick made a moving speech and acknowledged our Cross Fit community for helping forge on with the fight to end Rett Syndrome. Life is precious and fragile and this event was a wonderful reminder that community, support, friendship, and love is what makes life worth living, and these families who have little girls with Rett Syndrome are living with hands full, and hearts overflowing with love and dedication. Best of luck to the Herrick family and all the families touched by Rett. Check out these photos of Angela’s family, as well as two other CrossFitters, Rachelle and Mike who came to support!
