Heather Carroll CrossFit Games Fund

My name is Casey Carroll many of you know my mum (Heather Carroll.) Much to her surprise, she has qualified for the World CrossFit Games in the Masters Division (55 years - 59 years.)

So how did mum get this far?
Mum has been a member at CrossFit Geelong for approx 5 years now. Every year 'CrossFit' Headquarters releases 5 workouts for anyone in the CrossFit Community to complete. This is called the CrossFit Open. Your workouts are judged and scores logged online against the rest of the world.

This year Mum did as she usually does and competed in the CrossFit Open. She then realised she placed 7th in Australia for her division and 30th in the world!

The top 200 in the world then made it to the Qualifiers. CrossFit Headquarters released these 4 workouts over the Easter period and Mum had 5 days to complete these and ensure she had them all judged and videod at CrossFit Geelong.

We then all waited in anticipation to see where she finished on the world leaderboard. Much to her surprise, she secured herself 11th place in the world. The top 20 in the world are then invited to the World CrossFit Games in Carson, California, USA.

For those of you who don't know, Mum lost Dad to cancer last year suddenly. I admire her strength and courage to continue training through grieving the loss of Dad as he would have wanted her to pursue her passion that is CrossFit.  I am so proud of her achieving this given the grieving and loss in her life which has been a major driving factor as to why I would love to see this campaign successful. 

Many of mums friends, family, netball community and members at CrossFit Geelong have been asking if they can help with mum getting there in 10 weeks time. I came up with a list of what's required to get her to the World CrossFit Games which helped to choose my goal of $6,000.

-$270 CrossFit Games registration (Converted to AUD)
-$250 Transfers and transport (airport, hotel to events)
