WOD Brief:

Today we are raising awareness for Matt Cooper, a fellow crossfit athlete and friend from Crossfit Higher Ground who was shot protecting and defending our fellow citizens.

“While on duty, Matt was responding to a shoplifting call at the local Covington Walmart. Pursing one of the perpetrators on foot Matt took a shot to his head. He was taken by life flight to Atlanta Medical Center where the doctors found a bullet fragment that was lodged on his carotid artery. This caused him to have multiple strokes which caused swelling in his brain. A few days later he received a craniotomy to reduce the swelling in his brain and has since been transferred to the Shepherd Center Brain Rehabilitation Program in Atlanta where he will begin therapy under the guidance of a full team of medical and rehabilitation specialist. Matt still has a very long recovery ahead and we would like to help ease his family of any financial burden they may incur while he recovers.”

Please join us in participating in this doozy of a wod and by donating to his recovery. Here is the direct link for donations: Matt Cooper Recovery
