A Selfless Moment...

Our members of the month are often people who have inspired us through their hard work and dedication. They are often athletes that have made extraordinary physical gains, but because this athlete has a rambunctious toddler, a busy career and a passion for triathlons/marathons he isn't able to be one of our most consistent athlete. He does make it a point to try and participate in our extra-curricular activities, such as last years new years eve event, the expansion weekend, Murph, and the Be Staci Strong event. This however is not why Mitch is Junes member of the month! Mitch is the member of the month because he went above and beyond to support a fellow BCF member during the Murph challenge. This wasn't a buddy he knew, a spouse, or a family member. This was a stranger he doesn't even know outside of the box, yet he set aside his own personal ambitions to cheer and encourage this athlete along. He could see that she was struggling, so he stopped and walked when she needed to walk, he ran when she could run and no matter what he kept encouraging her to finish and he stayed with her every step of the way.

Mitch's selfless act had such a huge impact on that athlete that she took the time several days later to inform me of what happened and how much Mitch's sacrifice and encouragement helped her fight through a very challenging WOD. Thank you Mitch for reminding us the power of a selfless act and Thank You for being a BCF member!!
