Support Tamara Simmons

OK, the day is almost HERE! Heats start at 9am – we will post heat schedules on FRIDAY night here and on our social media platforms.

There will be incredible raffle prizes, food, drinks, and of course the WOD! Come support Tamara and the Simmons Family this Saturday at CrossFit Merced!


These are our friends Tamara and Josh with their awesome kids Jackson and Jenna.

Tamara just found out recently that she will be in the fight of her life, as she was diagnosed with breast cancer. While she still has much to learn about the treatment and the road ahead, we are sure it won’t be easy.

If you know Tamara like we do, you love her and her family, and you would do anything in your power to help in any way possible. So, that’s what we are going to do.

The CFM team has decided on July 22 we will host a friendly competition, and we want EVERYONE there.  The sole focus of the event is to create support for Tamara, Josh, and their family.  To accomplish this, we are hosting a friendly fitness competition that includes food, raffle gifts, and winners’ prizes.  Please join us as we lift up the Simmons family together. The competition will be held from 8:30 AM to Noon on Saturday, July 22 and will include a 10 minute workout for everyone, plus food, prizes, and gifts for the winners.

WOD: 10 Minute AMRAP of Wallballs and Clean & Jerks (135/95) 

The goal for this event is to create support for Tamara and her family as she starts her treatment.  We are glad to have you at the event – it’s going to be great.  Also, though, we want to be a source of sustained encouragement for the Simmons family throughout her fight, which will require a sustained effort.  Please bring with you a personal note of prayer, encouragement, and support in an envelope.  Thank you.

    1. We are from mid state, and my wife might need a partner. We will be there so if you need a partner, I will force her!
