On Christmas Eve a long standing member of CrossFit Federal Hill was killed in a plane crash. Pete W. was a consistent 5:30 am athlete for 4 years at CFH and a friend to many (including some of us Covies). He showed up, he worked hard and he never complained. He was not the loudest dude in the room or the most talkative, but he was about as nice and genuine as they come. We are beyond devastated to share this news and our condolences go out to his family and friends (as well as our extended Fed Hill family). CrossFit communities are build on people like Pete. He lifted up the community with his smile and always showed up ready to work hard.
On Saturday CrossFit Federal Hill and the Cove will be running a special memorial workout for Pete. This is not a fundraiser, rather just a way to honor his memory. It is the least we can do.

Pete was a member at CrossFit Federal Hill for four years. He was lost his life at age 27 in a tragic plane crash on Christmas Eve. Pete came to the 5:30 am class 5 days a week with a smile on his face. As his good friend Jimmy said. “He was as great as great gets.” Today we honor Pete.
