We are excited to announce our 5th Annual Grit & Grace Crossfit Fundraiser scheduled for FEBRUARY 3, 2024. In partnership with CrossFit Waipio, Pa’ana Alapai and her team, all proceeds raised for Grit & Grace will directly support Let Grace In and its programming. Let Grace In is a locally grown 501c3 organization whose mission is to restore HOPE to families after the death of a child.
Let Grace In was founded a year after we lost our son Grayson to a rare brain tumor called Glioblastoma multiforme. Throughout the 10-month fight Grayson had with his tumor, we were supported in every way you could imagine. Once Grayson earned his Angel wings, the support was still there but began to wane over time. That’s when we realized that it was our duty to carry on Grayson’s legacy of love and support other families battling grief after the loss of a child. No one should ever have to go through the worst tragedy anyone could ever imagine alone.
Let Grace In, together with the larger Oahu community, offers a space to recover the strength of mind, body, and spirit with ALOHA. Monthly & Hope Retreat activities are an opportunity to share stories of loss with other families, participate in healing activities that reduce anxiety, memorialize, & help families move into the future with their child. We believe in collaboration & have been working with existing non-profit organizations, bereavement professionals, & mind, body, spirit, cultural healing practitioners.
Grit & Grace will be a Saturday class takeover and will comprise of the following workout:
Teams of 3 (30 min cap)
Buy in: 500m WB Run
3 Rounds Each
25 DB Hang Clean and Jerks 50/35
10 Burpee box jump overs 24/20
Buy out: 143 synchro air squats (this is a total number not each roughly 48 per person)
*One person working at a time
*Each person completes one full round before next teammate can start
*Each person must complete 3 rounds
*Wall ball is held by someone the entire workout, 5 burpee penalty done by team if ball is dropped
The thoughts behind the WOD and numbers…. Grayson was 5 years old when he passed (500m WB run) his birthday is 3.25.10 and he often communicated 143 as an I love you to his parents. We also wanted to have some type of Grace movement in there (DB hang clean and jerks)
Of course, scale it however you see fit. Hopefully, everyone has fun!Participating Gyms are:
Crossfit Waipio with Paʻana & Team (Registration on this site is for this location only)
Crossfit Huaka’i with Kapua & Crew
