What Is The Amanda Miller Memorial Wod?
Amanda Miller competed in the 2009 CrossFit games and sadly, lost her battle with cancer less than one year later.
In 2010, the first WOD of the 2010 Games was dedicated to her and now “Amanda” is known as one of the gold-standard for fitness and tenacity in all of CrossFit.
This single-wod, online competition allows athletes to train for and compete in a workout that raises awareness of cancer in children, and to attack a workout that is difficult and extremely challenging, with the same fight, tenacity and determination that Amanda Miller brought to everything she did.
Registration Fee: $20.00 for all competitors and participants. No pledges or fundraising required. Just register, and prepare to crush the wod on July 21st!
Amanda Miller’s story hits very close to home for me. I watched her compete in the 2009 Games, and followed her blog while she battled her way through skin cancer. Some of you may know that my father died of skin cancer the same year Amanda lost her battle.
This WOD will take the place of our regularly scheduled Power Hour and Team Saturday on Saturday, July 21st. If you’d like to participate, visit the official site of the Amanda Miller WOD and get registered. The workout is tough, but there are divisions for scaled athletes as well. ALL are welcome to participate and honor this amazing CrossFitter.
