Aidian Smith Memorial Fund

On Monday, December 18, 2017 Aidian Smith passed away unexpectedly. Aidian, 15, was a straight A student at Logan High School. Aidian dreamed of becoming a pilot and recently completed his first flight lesson. He loved fishing, playing video games, and being with his friends and family. Aidian's mother, Jenny Merritt, is a CrossFit Coach and athlete. As a Coach, Jenny is always going above and beyond in helping her athletes. We are asking the CrossFit community to come together and support Jenny and family at this time by hosting the "Aidian" WOD and encouraging their community to make donations.  All funds raised will go directly to Jenny to help offset the financial and emotional hardship from Aidian's passing.
