Background: This Memorial workout is dedicated to Cora Schryver, who, at 13 years old, was the youngest member of 3 Peaks CrossFit @3peakscrossfit (Madras, Oregon, USA). Tragically, Cora took her own life on December 19, 2018.

After contacting Coach Mel of 3 Peaks, she confirmed that this workout was actually created by Cora herself when she was 3 Peaks' student-athlete of the month.

In her blog post, Mel said, "I can tell you without a doubt, we never saw this coming. None of us. We’re completely broadsided with shock, disbelief and grief..."

In an email with Cora's sister, Carol, she told us that Cora had wanted to try out for her 8th-grade football team and at the time the coach told her she needed to weigh 100 lbs to play. Through her hard work at 3 Peaks CrossFit, Cora successfully joined the team and was a starter free safety.

It is Mel and Carol's hopes that this WOD will not only honor Cora but also help raise awareness of suicide.

In describing Cora, Carol told us "she was an exceptional little human that hid her pain and encouraged others to see the best in themselves."
