With a running clock, as fast as possible perform the prescribed work in the order written.

The creator of the workout originally posted it with the following non-fitness cash in and cash out:

Cash In: Do your own research. Read anti-racist articles and educate yourself. I recommend the following Instagram pages: @Rachel.Cargle, @ckyourprivilege, @nowhitesaviors, and @decolonizing_fitness

Cash Out: Donate, sign petitions, and spread awareness. Donate your money to the local organizations currently on the front line fighting for @blacklivesmatterdc, @minnesotafreedomfund. Sign the petition for justice for Breonna Taylor. Vote in upcoming local and national elections – this is the change to vote out officials who don’t support black lives and vote in the people that do. Get your local CrossFit box involved and encourage them to complete “Big Floyd” to raise awareness for black lives.

Score is the time on the clock when the last 800 meter Run is completed.

Background: This memorial workout is dedicated to George Floyd who died in police custody after being brutally arrested by four Minneapolis police officers on May 25, 2020. His killing sparked peaceful protests and riots in over 100 cities in the US.

George Floyd was known as a peace activist and a respected community leader.

The workout, designed by Stacy Pugh, founder of @blackpowercleans, spread throughout the CrossFit community in support of the Black Lives Matter movement following George Floyd's killing.

It circulated with a letter Stacy wrote detailing his desire to see increased diversity in the functional fitness community and to urge athletes to complete the workout in honor of George and in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Stacy’s original post included an image with the text, “We lift for: George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Sandra Bland, Philando Castile, Atatiana Jefferson, Walter Scott, Alton Sterling, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, Stephon Clark. Rest in Power."

The workout was also originally written with a non-fitness buy-in and cash-out (included above).
