In September of 2015, 2x CrossFit Games Athlete Jenny LaBaw set out on a 500 mile run across the state of Colorado to raise both awareness and money for Epilepsy. Jenny was diagnosed with Epilepsy at the age of 8. Having doctors set a number of limitations on what she would be able to do, Jenny went on to defy them!
CrossFit Indestri + UG Series have supported Move Mountains since day one. UG Series sponsoring the run, and CrossFit Indestri and it’s members participating by running daily with Jenny (here at our gym, before and after class + raising money.)
In 2016 on the one year anniversary of the completion of her Move Mountains run, we along with many other CrossFit Affiliates held a Move Mountains workout. It was also on the eve of the 2nd Women Strong retreat, which meant that we were lucky enough to have some of the top Women in the Sport of CrossFit in our facility to hit the workout during our 6:30pm class with our members. Including Katie Hogan, Nicole Holcomb, Becca Voigt + Sam Briggs. Jenny herself arrived at CF Indestri the following day!
Move Mountains is a workout we have done every October 19th since. Much like we do Grace for Grace on March 26th, Epilepsy awareness + support is a cause close to our hearts at CrossFit Indestri.
Jenny is also just a phenomenal woman! Truly one of the kindest, humblest + most genuine humans you will met. She is also a badass athlete, who can bust out pistols faster then most of us can air squat!
So please come out, hit Move Mountains + please wear purple in support.
1 mile – 26 reps, because 1 in 26 are diagnosed with epilepsy.
