Please join us at Blackbird CrossFit as we band together to support fallen fireman, Lt. Nathan Flynn.
Lt. Flynn passed away in the Line of Duty on the morning of July 23, 2018, while operating as the “lineman” on Engine 101. He is survived by his wife, Celeste, and five children. He was a 13 year member of Howard County Fire & Rescue (Maryland).
We will be running this tribute WOD twice during the weekend. On Saturday anyone is welcome to complete the tribute WOD during our Open Gym at 8am. On Sunday at 11am we will hold our main community event. For Sunday, we have secured top of the line raffle prizes from some of our favorite CrossFit companies AND we will be offering any local fire fighters who attend a 20% discount on our Foundations for Beginners.***
