“Officer down” tribute workout to be held on January 25


Risen Strength CrossFit gym will be hosting a special workout at 10 a.m. on January 25 at Buchholz High School to honor the law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty during the previous year.

The annual event was started by an Alachua County Deputy Sheriff and is now hosted by a former ACSO Detective who owns his own gym. Participants will complete a burpee box jump for every officer killed in the previous year. Participants typically include sworn and non-sworn officers, citizens, and families.

The event is free, but t-shirts can be ordered for $20. Participants can register here
