As you are all well aware of, This Friday the 28th we will be doing a few things for a fellow Bendigonian and his gorgeous Family.
We are inviting all of the Bendigo and Greater Bendigo Community to partake in a Memorial Workout dedicated to the late great man Ian “Bakes” Baker and later that evening join us in a beverage and to bid on a few items in the Fundraising Auction.
The workout is 100% scalable/modifiable for any ability, age or fitness level. No previous experience of CrossFit necessary. We will cater for anyone and everyone to partake in giving something for someone else. There is also a Live Logon and Leaderboard where you can enter your name and score
You also can come and not partake in a workout, make a donation, grab a feed from the ALL day BBQ and have a yarn with great people.
Ian sadly passed away on Saturday the 8th of Nov in an unfortunate Ski Racing accident on the Hawkesberry River (NSW). Ian was born on the 5th August 1969 and grew up in Rochester, where he graduated in 1987. Ian has spent more than the last two decades working for Telstra with his always “Can Do” attitude to life. Ian has had two passions in life; one being for Water Ski Racing (99 Psyhco Clowns) and the other his Family. Ian was a passionate, caring and loving man who put others before himself, but above else, he held his beautiful wife Jo and his 4 gorgeous daughters Jessica, Jordan, Jenna & Jasmine dearest to his heart.
Having over 1000 people attend his funeral was a testament to the man’s heart he had for life and as such, why we are not just asking for donations for his family, but why we are dedicating a Memorial Workout to honour his name, we are doing this so the name “Bakes” is echoed for all of eternity, for the love and the ultimate sacrifice he has made.
All proceeds will be donated to Jo, Jessica, Jordan, Jenna & Jasmine (more info found below)
