As many of you are aware, our Coach and dear friend, Gina, lost her mother to pancreatic cancer on May 23, 2017. Through her courageous battle, Gina and her two daughters, Julia and Kristina, worked to raise awareness for this devastating diagnosis through profiling her treatments via blog posts (donnasstoryofstrength.wordpress.com) and working with charities, such as Project Purple. This organization is particularly important to Gina as it was founded by a member of the Crossfit community who was affected by pancreatic cancer. Although times were rough, Gina brought us together to do a workout to benefit this organization. In lieu of flowers for the services to commemorate her mother and to support the efforts of Project Purple, to have a world without pancreatic cancer, we would like to collect monetary donations in Donna's name and memory. Donations will be given directly to Project Purple to support other patients, families, and caregivers through difficult times. Thank you for you kindness, your generosity, and your willingness to help friends and families in need.
