The 15th of July 2014 will mark the anniversary of the passing of Brendan Hurst. For those that don’t know, Brendan was the partner of Bootcamper/CrossFitter and good friend Tanya Cashin, and father to their son Max. Brendan “Hursty” Hurst was killed on the 15/07/07 while serving in Iraq as a civilian contractor training local police officers as a result of injuries sustained during an ambush on the outskirts of Bagdad. Brendan had previously served as a Police Officer in the Queensland Police Force for over 15 years and was highly regarded and respected by his colleagues. Brendan was partner to Tanya and Father to Max. Sadly, Max was only a few weeks old when Brendan passed away. He is survived and will always be in the hearts of his partner, Tanya Cashin and Son Max Hurst. It will be our honour to conduct a Memorial WOD for Brendan on the anniversary of his death (15/07/14) and would love to see maximum attendance on this day. Together with Tanya, we have created a workout that is inspired by Brendan’s training style and regardless of your physical prowess, this is a chance to celebrate the life of someone who passed too soon with your best effort. For any affiliates out there with members (especially first responder/military) who would like to be part of this workout – we welcome you to be involved.
