Fundraiser for the families of
SGT Jody McPherson and John Velandra
CrossFit Wilmington has been a part of the Wilmington community for 2 years and wants to show appreciation for making our expansion and growth an exciting reality.
We are hosting a cookout in celebration of our move to our new 8,000 sq ft building on Saturday,
January 30th from 10am – 3pm. Food will be served at 12:30.
We are taking this opportunity to help the families of Wilmington Police Officer, SGT Jody McPherson and CrossFit Cape Fear owner, John Velandra.
SGT McPherson, a Wilmington Police Officer of 12 years, died of cancer in December 2009 leaving his wife, Debbie and two year old twin sons, Joseph and Jacob.
John Velandra, a former member of the 75th Ranger Reg. and 3rd Special Forces Grp, was a vital and active member in the CrossFit community. One of the first CrossFit owners in NC, he was killed in a vehicle accident on Jan 6 enroute to open his gym for their "morning crew".
Proceeds and donations will go to Jody and Debbie’s son’s college fund and John’s memorial fund.
Items from local vendors such as Try Sports, Active Care Chiropractic, Jim’s Guns & Pawn, Mama Fu’s, Monkey Joe’s, Extreme Outfitters, Shooter’s Choice, Hardwire Tattoo, ArtFuel Inc., GNC Mayfaire and University Center, and others will be raffled or given as prizes in competitions.
The competitions will be fun events that anyone can participate in. Our youth and child program coordinator even has something in mind to entertain the kids!
Congratulations to Kelly and Zach L. on the birth of their baby girl, El. El was born Christmas morning and Kelly joined CFW less than two weeks later. Our program is a scalable and progressive, we ease beginners into our workouts and the intensity.
