It has been 20 years since we experienced our country’s worst terrorist attack that changed us forever. While this was a tragic day filled with senseless loss, it was also a day that united us in ways we could never imagine.
While we each have our personal stories of that day and will do our own self-reflections, we hope you will join us in a remembrance workout as a group. Together, as a strong and supportive community, we will honor the lives lost and recognize our first responders and military personnel who provide us the freedoms we often take for granted. We are so lucky to have all of you as part of this community.
In addition to the day’s honorary WOD happening at the gym, we also hope to accumulate 2071 weighted step ups as a group. The World Trade Towers each consisted of 110 floors and 2071 steps, and this is our way of paying tribute to those that so fearless climbed those steps to give their lives for complete strangers. If you can’t make it to the gym, just add your steps to your Wodify results and we’ll add up all the whiteboard totals for the day.
Thank you for participating and paying tribute to the 2,997 people that were killed in Twin Towers, the Pentagon and on the United Airlines Flight 93 20 years ago today.
