I am pleased to say that I have been continuing to work hard towards my goals in Crossfit since I received my sponsorship. The event I was sponsored for was back in August, and I’ve been training hard since then to continue in the community competitions. I did, however, hit a bit of a hurdle and about a month after the competition, I tore the ligaments in my ankle. This derailed my competition plans for the end of 2022 but it hasn’t stopped me from training and I think I’m coming out the other side better and stronger.
The event I was sponsored for initially was the 2022 Masters HQ CrossFit championships – so it was really awesome that the first competition I returned to was the qualifying stage of the 2023 competition series in January. The workouts were really challenging but it was a great experience and it was awesome to put to work many of the skills I have been able to work on through the sponsorship. While I’ve made it through to the next round, I, unfortunately, won’t be able to get to the next event – but I’m looking out for other competitions during the year!
The CrossFit community is amazing and we also held a beach volleyball day, which our gym Crossfit South Wharf dedicated to being a fundraiser for AAAF. I was proud to speak at the start of the event about the foundation and the incredible work it does, especially with the kids adventure camps. So many members got behind the event and made donations through the website, and I’m really proud to have been a part of it and to be able to share awareness about alopecia and the great work of AAAF.
