If you were at our Mayhem in Mankato event last May, you probably noticed something special in the Men’s Scaled division.
We received a call a couple of months before the competition from Derek Weida, a veteran and amputee, wanting to participate. We were absolutely thrilled with the idea and couldn’t wait to provide the platform for him to compete. He was new to CrossFit at the time and just wanted to have some fun. The kid showed up, absolutely killed it and was the talk of the competition.
Derek chatted with a number of our staff members in-between workouts and down time at the competition, and somewhere along the way we sparked the idea of teaming up with his non-profit, The Next Objective. GameDay Competitions couldn’t be more excited to announce that you will be seeing a lot more of this guy and TNO at our competitions in the coming year.
Registration will open for the GameDay Championship on 8.10.15 and we will donate 25% proceeds to TNO on all spectator ticket sales! Tell your friends folks!
