LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - CrossFit centers around the country came together to workout and raise money for the 19 firefighters who died in June while fighting fires in Arizona.
More than 60 people came out to CrossFit Uncommon Saturday afternoon for a Hero Workout of the Day (WoD).
The nationwide workout consisted of six rounds of 30 squats, 19 power cleans, seven pull-ups and a 400-meter run.
CrossFit Uncommon owner Pete Deiwert said he was amazed how the local community came together for a group of families more than 1,500 miles away.
"We're all banding together today to support these mean. I think it's just amazing to see people that are willing to put themselves on the line like this because what we are doing is not easy and it's usually not fun until about 20 minutes afterward," said Deiwert.
All proceeds from Saturday's workout will go to the 19 families.
More than $135,000 has been raised nationwide.
