For all of the amazing and exciting things that happen within the CrossFit community, when something hits one of us, it hits all of us. Many of you may know Kevin Lynch — the owner of CrossFit Nevermore in Baltimore County. He is also responsible for the Baltimore Affiliate League and always helps out when it comes to running events in the area. Last week Kevin’s long time girlfriend Angie who is an active CrossFit athlete in the Baltimore community was diagnosed with cancer. Again. She has fought it through twice before successfully. We were lucky enough to participate in a fundraising WOD last year called “Fight Gone Angie” and she was on the road to recover then. Unfortunately it is back and the prognosis is not good. Here is a quote from Kevin’s Facebook page-
“Tuesday was the most devastating night of our lives. We both felt helpless and scared and angry and sad…and very lost. The endless stream of visits and messages from you beautiful people has helped bring us back. Over the last three days it is been very inspiring to witness the power of the human spirit and the healing that can take place when there is love. Angie is THE love of my life and her ability to absorb this blow and respond with grace and humor and resolve has given me the strength and will to dig down and help her through this the best that I can. We have shared and will continue to share more with one another than I thought humanly possible. Most of that will stay between us, but I will share this with all of you… We are determined to find joy and happiness and make THAT the priority in our lives. We will find moments and adventures that challenge us to LIVE and EXPERIENCE. After all, this is how we all should live, isn’t it? The treatments and hospital visits will be merely a necessary distraction from our happy life. We refuse to approach this from the opposite direction.”
We are not asking for anything here, rather we are simply shedding light on the story. We have made a donation on behalf of the Cove. It is from our community. So consider it a donation from you because with out your support, every single one of you that is reading the blog, we would not be able to do things like this. If you want to read more about her journey, still feel compelling to give or just want to see what they plan to do with the funds and her time remaining, please please check out her page:
