This GoFundMe page has been established to help raise training and travel funds to support Casey Campbell’s participation in the 2017 CrossFit Games from 3-6 August in Madison, Wisconsin.
The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on EarthTM. Qualifying for this event is a remarkable accomplishment and represents a chance of a lifetime to compete amongst the world’s toughest athletes in one of the fastest growing sports in America.
Currently ranked 33rd in the world in CrossFit, Casey’s inspiring journey began at the age of four when she discovered the sport of gymnastics, which she passionately continued throughout her childhood over the next seventeen years.
Earning an athletic scholarship at the University of Denver, she competed as a collegiate gymnast from 2003 to 2007 where she qualified for the NCAA Nationals twice as an individual and once as a team. Upon graduating with a B.A. in Psychology, she continued onto post-graduate education at Cal State University, Fullerton, where she earned a M.S. in Sport Psychology.
Deeply impacted and inspired by her coaches throughout her gymnastic career, Casey has devoted her life to giving back to the sport, coaching at both the NCAA and Club levels. Without a doubt, her devotion to coaching is evident to all those who know her, and if you ask her, she will kindly tell you that she feels extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to help coach and develop the next generation of aspiring female athletes into strong, confident young women-both in the gym and in life.
In the summer of 2013, Casey started CrossFit, and a year later she starting competing in both CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting, qualifying for the American Open in 2014 and 2015, and West Regional in 2016 (21st) and 2017 (5th). Although she thought that she was capable of qualifying for the CrossFit Games, she was unsure if she could find the time to train while also working as a full-time gymnastics coach. However, she made the decision to commit as much as she could to train and to her surprise she qualified for the CrossFit Games her second year at Regionals.
Simply put, Casey is proud and grateful for the opportunity to compete in the 2017 CrossFit Games, and she hopes that she can use this experience to have a greater impact on the community-both near and far. Her goal in everything she does in life is to do it with integrity to the best of her ability, and she hopes to be a role model to those all around her regardless of age or ability. Indeed, Casey has demonstrated that hard work, dedication, and a good attitude can lead you to achieve things you never even dare to dream of…
Now she just needs a little more help to get her there!
