What’s better than 1 good arm?... 2 of course.
4 months ago I had the pleasure of meeting one of the most genuine, kind hearted people I could have ever met. At the time I didn’t realize what she has been through over the last year. It’s hard to see the pain through all the smiles. Even though I never got the chance to see her compete, hearing how everyone speaks about her as a coach and as an athlete makes me want to make sure she continues to follow her passion with CrossFit. And the only way I can ensure that is to try and raise the money needed for her arm surgery.
A year ago Jackie was being Jackie and broke her arm in a freak accident with a tree... more like a branch if you ask me. Last year she competed in CrossFit regionals and is an incredible athlete and CrossFit coach at CrossFit Westchase. If you ask anyone to tell you anything about her they always have the best compliments and say that she has a way of making everyone smile and she lights up a room (trust me I did my research and talked to plenty of people) The CT scans show after a year the bones still aren’t coming together. Watching such an amazing woman sit on the sidelines during the open and regionals is gut wrenching. She deserves to be out there competing. Her drive and passion for helping others achieve their goals is inspiring, and it shows everyday when she shows up to work to coach other athletes and train them into being the best versions of themselves that they can be. She deserves the same and the only way to do so is to help her raise the money needed to help her heal and start doing what she does best...
the estimated costs for surgery is looking somewhere in the ballpark of $8000. Every little bit counts. No amount is too little. If you are fortunate enough to have a little extra to help her get back to competing and being the best coach she can be, please donate. And if not... a few quick words of encouragement helps more than you know! Thank you all in advance and thank you Jackie... for continuing to inspire everyone despite your own set backs.
