Bring Jon Home!

Apr 13, 2014 17 Comments by

The US Embassy is preventing Jon from entering the country he’s called home for a decade. And without him, his wife and two little girls are suffering.

Jon’s family owns a business that he manages. He’s a regular contributor to the CrossFit community and has been for seven years. He was even on Practice CrossFit’s Regional affiliate team in 2010. When he returned to Mexico, he was under the impressions he’d be back in a week … now we’re not sure when he’s coming home.

While we fight in every way imaginable, we need your help:

Sign this petition and share it as often as possible.

Email Senator Brown here, and call the office whenever you can.

Click here to help Cassi and the family left to fend for themselves because of paperwork. Without our help, they could lose their home, their car … everything.

Sometimes we get so immersed in paperwork and policy that we end up hurting the people the rules were originally created to help. When anything gets in the way of good people getting fair treatment–terrorists, criminals or even our own government–something must change.

    What a productive morning! The athletes at 5am came to do some work!
    From beautiful Power Cleans to aggressive clean and jerks this group worked their tales off this am.
    Sandy did 100lbs for the workout, which equates to 17 C&J in 6 minutes.
    Krissy and Michelle did 8x400m repeats before class.
    Very impressed with all the athletes this morning.

    Yes, that’s what I did in my dreams. in real life I did 100# power clean + clean + jerk. 2 PRs for me.
