In honor of Navy Chief Petty Officer, Mark T. “Badger” Carter, 27, who was killed December 11, 2007 while conducting combat operations in Iraq.
This was an email that we received from Eric at Chandler CrossFit.
I was hoping to never have to send an e-mail like this but after discussing the recent death of Skyler Stock with co-workers I felt like I had to do something.
For those of you who are not aware of Skyler’s story please see the attachment from the Arizona Republic. For those of you who do not know me I am a Training Captain for the City of Chandler Fire Department and run Chandler Crossfit.
I was introduced to Skyler and 29 other firefighters in 2007 when Tempe and Chandler did a joint academy. At the time I was assigned to assist with developing the PT portion of the academy. Of course we did Crossfit.
After the unfortunate events that took place a couple of days ago I would like to post a workout for the Arizona affiliates if you are willing. I would like everyone doing this to do it on the same day in honor of Skyler. The workout is one that Skyler did during the academy. Be advised we liked setting up academy workouts in teams so the focus is never on 1 individual. It goes as follows:
Relay of 6 individuals on 1 team, (you can remove the rest if only 5), you cannot leave your station until everyone has completed their individual exercise.
Reps 21, 15, 9
Sit-ups (GHD would be good)
Rest (if appropriate)
I know the workout is not the most challenging ie: hero type, but this is one Skyler actually participated in and represents his academy well.
At this point the only information I have on a donation site is at Wells Fargo. If anyone has any experience on this end PLEASE let me know. The idea is 1st to honor Skyler and 2nd if possible raise a little extra money for Skyler’s wife and 3 young kids.
Workout date - December 19 at each individual box.
If I am missing any affiliates on this please forward as you see appropriate. Also, if anyone has any suggestions, questions or comments please contact me at my affiliate address at email@example.com.
I have attached a photo of Skyler during an academy workout he is the one that just came off the pull-up bar.
If you’re able to make it, come down this Saturday at either 7am or 9am to take part in this wod.
