On January 8th, 2011 in Tucson Arizona, during an open meeting held by U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords in a supermarket parking lot, a gunman opened fire injuring 20 people. Of those injured, 6 of them were fatal including a 9 year old girl by the name of Christina-Taylor Green. Born on September 11, 2001, she had appeared in the book Faces of Hope: Babies Born on 9/11 (page 41) and was also the granddaughter of former Major League Baseball player and manager Dallas Green.
A few days ago, the folks over at CrossFit Old Town completed a Rememberance WOD for Christina. It was a 20 minute AMRAP for the 20 victims of the shooting, which had 6 movements for the 6 people fatally shot, each with 9 reps for Christina who was 9 at the time.
Let’s show our support and do this one for Christina!
