If you guys would, please read the following post that Pete included with the original post back in 2013 when we first did this. It meant a lot to us as a community and still means a lot to this day.

I’m not entirely sure why yet but this cause, these firemen’s story has really affected me. Be it the fact I was a fireman or that most of them were CrossFitters..or it could be the kids. 16 children, 3 of which are unborn are without fathers. They are without fathers because those men chose to serve their neighbors. They died protecting the lives and property of their community. I think it deserves us stopping and thinking about how huge a sacrifice that is. To knowingly put yourself in a situation that could result in you never dancing at your daughters wedding, never teaching your son to throw a ball or swing a bat. I’m sorry but that thought brings me to tears. I’m blown away that men and women like this exist and I’m compelled to honor them.
