On July 28, 2011, Asheville firefighter Capt. Jeff Bowen gave his life in the line of duty. In his honor, we are hosting a CrossFit Hero workout to raise money for the Bowen Family.

A donation of $35 earns you a spot in the heat as well as a commemorative t-shirt. All proceeds will be going to the Bowen family. ANYONE is welcome to participate. You do not have to be a member of a local CrossFit to attend. Spectators and families are welcome and encouraged to attend the event. Please come on out and show your support to honor the memory and family of a local hero.
