Veterans Day Hero WOD Dedicated to Chad Wilkinson

Chad 1000X, Veteran Suicide Prevention

Together with Sara Wilkinson, we bring you the hero workout "Chad", in honor of Navy SEAL Chad Wilkinson who took his life on October 29, 2018 due to the effects of numerous deployments, several TBIs, blast wave injuries and PTSD. Our goal is to honor Chad's life and legacy and by raising awareness for suicide prevention.

Suicide Awareness

The Veterans Day "Chad" Hero WOD goes beyond the Veteran, CrossFit, and GORUCK communities — it is for everyone. Chad was the oldest of four siblings and a born overachiever. He was good at everything, but couldn’t reach out for help even to those of us who would do anything for him.

There are a lot of people who are struggling, too many lives are lost. Many more we can prevent. We believe that physical health leads to mental health and everybody needs somebody. So use "Chad" as inspiration. Say his name, honor his story, and live big by sharing your time with friends and those you love. Tomorrow is never promised.
