As many of you may be aware, one of our members, Otto Miller suffered a tragic accident last month at college that has left him paralyzed from the waist down. Currently he is in the hospital at school awaiting transfer to a rehabilitation facility and ultimately coming home to Queensbury. According to updates, Otto is in high sprits given his circumstances.
Otto was an active member at LGCF this past fall and early winter. He came to us looking to build some strength for his upcoming college hockey season. Otto is part of the Lake George CrossFit family. We take care of family, no matter what. We thought it would only be fitting to host an event to help him and his family, displaying the amazing support of our local CrossFit community.
Therefore, we are asking all of you LGCF members, friends and family to attend our fundraising WOD to raise money for the Miller family. This money will be utilized to help offset the cost of his rehabilitation, support, etc. We are asking that you sign up at the gym and state that you are either attending to do the WOD or attending to spectate. We are also asking for a $20 donation upon sign in. It is not mandatory at all to donate and please DO NOT feel obligated. I fully understand that it may not be possible for you to donate. However, that being said, I know very well just what the LGCF is capable of raising when it comes to fund raisers. I’m asking all of you to please seek donations from your friends, family and peers. Make them aware that you will be put through a challenging workout in honor of Otto for their donation.
In true Lake George Crossfit fashion, and knowing Otto…we will be hitting a hard WOD and throwin’ down in his honor! WOD “Otto” to be posted soon. Hope to see all of you at LGCF on Saturday February 20th at 7:30am ready to work…
