Some updates on Melissa
We wanted to give some brief but important follow ups on Melissa Arnold. With the permission of her family, we wanted to share with you all that through her tragedy, Melissa was able to provide 8 life saving organ transplants to people in serious need. Last weekend Methodist Hospital performed an “Honor Walk” where the nurses, doctors and staff lined the hallways in respect and reverence for her donations as she was transferred from the ICU to the operating room. Theres no doubt that Melissa was taken too early, and our heart goes out to her family, friends, loved ones and her two pups. But the gift of life she was able to bestow upon 8 perfect strangers is nothing short of incredible. Melissa’s legacy lives on in so many ways and we are so fortunate to have her as a part of our community. In coordination with her siblings, who are also CrossFitters as well as a couple of her former gyms, we will be doing a tribute workout to Melissa on her birthday in late October. More details to follow.
Some of you have asked for her parent’s address so that you could send a card or flowers. If you’re interested, please reach out to David at Crossfitsbk@gmail.com to get the information.
