Crossfit Gyms Across Region Come Together To Honor Cody Holte
Crossfit gyms across Grand Forks are also partaking in the event
WEST FARGO, N.D. — Crossfit gyms across the F-M area come together in honor of Grand Forks Police Officer Cody Holte who was killed in a shooting while on duty May 27th.
At Crossfit, a Hero Workout of the Day or W-O-D is a tribute to a fallen first responder or member of the military who died in the line of duty.
The workout dedicated to Officer Holte consisted of a thirteen hundred meter run and a thirteen hundred meter row.
Those were followed by 17 rounds of six push-ups, 3 single arm double presses and 9 single arm thrusters.
“All of those numbers and hero workouts represent something. So, the 1,300 plus the 1,300 is the 2,600 block. 17 rounds is 17th street. And that’s where Officer Holte was shot and killed. And then, six, three, nine is his badge number,” says local organizer Kayla Goebel.
Crossfit gyms across Grand Forks also participated in the event.
In total about 74 people participated statewide, including 10 gyms.
Some of the organizers include: Jennifer Freeman, Fred Kooser, Dustin McWilliams, Molly McWilliams, and Luke Glasoe.
