Wednesday 11.20.13

This Saturday's WOD will be in honor of Alex P.'s father, who passed away a few days ago. For those who don't know, Alex has been part of the CFCH family for quite some time now. He frequents the 9:30AM and the occasional evening class, but you can always find him at open gym on Saturdays. He was originally supposed to compete with us at the Alamo City Throwdown in San Antonio when his father had a stroke, and he immediately left for Florida to be with his dad. After what seemed like a recovery progressing very well, Alex's father passed unexpectedly a few days ago. We would love to show our support for Alex by pulling together to be a Houston family for him. Saturday's WOD will be designed in honor of Mr. Poole and we will be taking donations for the family to help with travel and funeral expenses.

We made this announcement tonight during evening classes for the first time, and by the end of the evening, I was almost in tears by the outpouring of generosity and support thus far. You are truly an amazing group of folks.
