HONORING MCCRAE WILLIAMS

On SATURDAY, DECEMBER 16, Daybreak CrossFit will be honoring McCrae Williams, son of long time Daybreak CrossFit member, Chris Williams. We are partnering with McCrae’s family to host the “MW3” Hero WOD where ALL donations will benefit the McCrae James Williams Foundation. Daybreak CrossFit will also donate 1-month Unlimited Memberships to the top 5 donors. 

McCrae Williams: 01.29.98 – 09.12.17

McCrae touched many people in his 19 years and, although his life was cut tragically short, it was a life well-lived and one full of incredible experiences.  He was a Division 1 lacrosse recruit at Lafayette collage and died a few weeks into his freshman year.  Beyond lacrosse, he loved art (especially video production and editing and graphic arts), family, travel and friends.  Many people have remarked that he had a unique ability to connect with people of all ages and understand them.

McCrae fell in his dorm at 5pm shortly after returning from a lacrosse initiation event at the off campus lacrosse house.  His friends decided they should put him in his bed and JanSport him rather than call for help.  After leaving him in his bed for 22 hours, they decided to carry him out to the parking lot in an effort to bring him to a clinic, at which point the coaching staff heard what was going on and called 911.  He died two days later from a traumatic head injury.  As a goalie, he was the last line of defense.  In his death, he is the last line of defense for the recipients of 5 of his organs.

ABOUT THE McCRAE JAMES WILLIAMS FOUNDATION

In his memory, his family and friends continue to celebrate his accomplishments, and are now focused on raising awareness on the importance of good samaritan policies and the dangerous practice of JanSporting (aka Backpacking, DrunkPacking or Turtling).  Every parent has seen a recent article about a college student dying. You may even know of someone whose son or daughter has died at school. The truly tragic fact is that if help were called, most if not all of these kids would be alive today. Unfortunately, there are only a few poorly funded organizations working to understand and resolve the problem.

    I just registered – Brandon and I would love to both do the workout but I obviously can’t read directions and put “daybreak” instead of WOD into the affiliate line…

    I may have done the same thing 🙁
    I think I put Daybreak instead of WOD. I can’t read directions either.
