3x CrossFit Games teen athlete Dylan Kade got down on one knee in the middle of the North Park and asked his girlfriend Mia Nightingale to marry him while a bunch of shirtless buffed athletes were close by. She said yes!
The CrossFit Games always provide a special occasion for spectators, but Mia Nightingale was not expecting to see his shirtless boyfriend get down on one knee and pop the question in front of hundreds of people.
According to a post on Dave Castro’s Instagram, Dylan Kade accidentally tossed up a small box with a ring inside on the ground. He quickly picked it up, got down on one knee and asked her to marry him.
”If the last year taught me anything,” Dylan said, “it’s that I want to spend the rest of my life with you.”
Mia Nightingale tackled her boyfriend in a hug and now the future looks brighter than ever for both of them.
Dylan Kade was Diagnosed with a Rare Encephalitis
2020 was a difficult year for most people and Dylan Kade had an extra difficult obstacle. He was diagnosed with Jamestown Canyon Encephalitis, a rare virus that attacked his brain and spinal cord causing inflammation.
The once athletic teenager survived by breathing through a ventilator and his future was uncertain according to doctors. “My neurologist told me they didn’t think I’d be able to think on my own ever again,” Dylan wrote.
