The hashtag #cfustrong means a few things.
Sure, it means “strong” in the traditional sense – pushing through hard workouts, eeking out that last rep, and holding on to the bar when your body says stop.
It also means “strong” in the sense of supporting each member of our community during tough times.
A few weeks ago, a member of our community, Denise Villalobos was a victim of a gruesome attack. A man attacked her and several others with a baseball bat. The attack killed one victim and left Denise in critical condition with a broken jaw, multiple skull fractures, and other injuries. She’s undergone several surgeries over the past few days to repair her skull and will likely have more.
This is where we get to the heart of what #cfustrong really means. It extends far beyond what happens within an individual workout.
This week at CrossFit Undeniable, we’re supporting Denise through a few different ways.
First, we’ll have a card at the gym this afternoon (Monday) on the front desk. Please sign it with words of encouragement. We’ll deliver it to Denise next week.
Second, we’re dedicating the workout this upcoming Saturday to Denise. Similar to this past weekend, the workout will be tough, but it will pale in comparison to what Denise is going through on her road to recovery.
Third, we’re encouraging anyone that’s able to donate to her GoFundMe page to help cover the cost of her treatment.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Denise and her family during this tough time. Our whole community is sending hugs, high fives, and positive vibes your way and wishing nothing but the best for you moving forward.
