We are excited to announce that our CrossFit Soda City family will once again be participating in Families Helping Families this holiday season.
In 2018 Families Helping Families (FHF) in the Midlands provided assistance to more than 3,400 families in need of food, clothing, and Christmas gifts. The estimated value of this assistance was nearly $1.5 million.
Now in its 30th year, FHF provides a business-like approach to organizing holiday giving for the neediest families in South Carolina. By coordinating with local agencies and community assistance programs we can ensure that donations and charitable giving are targeted to those who need help the most, and by eliminating duplication of services we can do more for more families.
If you are interested in donating or participating in this charity event, please speak to Coach Elliot. There will be a tree set up in the gym with ornaments (wish list items for the family) and you can choose one or more to be responsible for. Please make sure your gifts are wrapped and under the tree by December 4th for delivery.
This will be the only holiday assistance that the families will receive this year so we hope that our CrossFit Soda City community consider participating.

U.S. Army Spc. Christopher J. Coffland of Baltimore, MD, died 11/13/09, in Wardak province, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when enemy forces attacked his unit with an IED. Coffland, who joined the Army a month before reaching the enlistment age limit of 42, was assigned to the 323rd Military Intelligence Battalion at Fort Meade, Maryland. He was deployed to Afghanistan two weeks prior to his death.
Coffland was a CrossFit athlete who was known to have demolished the U.S. Army Physical Fitness Test, which features push-ups, sit-ups and a 2-mile run. He was particularly fond of long workouts, heavy lifts, distance sprints, push-ups and sit-ups.
