CrossFit Waterbury of Vermont created this WOD in memory of five local high school students who were killed when their car was struck by a wrong-way driver. They were all in their junior year.

From CrossFit Waterbury “On 10/9/2016 our community suffered a huge loss, when 5 young teens were taken from us much too soon. We will do this WOD every year, on the Saturday following 10/9, in honor of Cyrus Zschau, Eli Brookens, Janie Cozzi, Liam Hale, and Mary Harris, all 16 years old.”
