U.S. Army Spc. Christopher D. Horton, of Collinsville, Oklahoma, died Sept. 9, 2011, in Zurmat District, Afghanistan, of wounds sustained when enemy forces attacked his unit with small-arms fire. The 26-year-old was assigned to 1st Battalion, 279 Infantry Regiment, 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, Oklahoma National Guard. Horton is survived by his wife, Jane; parents David and Cherie; brother, Nicholas; sister, Tenley; and many other friends and family.

A Heroes 4 Horton fundraising event was created in his name, to raise awareness and funds for Companions For Heroes‘ mission (“to save and help shelter dogs and cats, active duty military, disabled veterans, first-responders, law enforcement and their families from suicide, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and depression.”

The “Horton” Hero WOD was first posted on as the workout of the day for Saturday, October 10, 2015 (151010), where the post offered, “If you can’t find a partner, perform 5 reps of each exercise per round and find a heavy sandbag to carry.”
