Fight 2 Flourish

Date: Saturday, May 15, 2021

Time: 8:00 AM

Location: CrossFit Salt de Terre  2385 Corbett Street, Building 2
Jacksonville, FL 32205 

CrossFit Salt de Terre and The Youth Crisis Center invite adults and teens to compete together, at our first-ever Fight to Flourish event, raising funds and awareness for Teen Suicide. 

This event is inspired by the passing of a fellow CrossFitter, Cora Schryver of Ojai, CA who took her life at age 13. Cora loved animals, the outdoors, and CrossFit. In her gym, she was known for “pushing people past their comfort zones,” always giving it her all, and for wearing only Converse sneakers when working out. 

Through this partner style competition, our aim is to honor and remember the teens, families, and loved ones, like Cora’s, affected by teen suicide.
