Donna has been here for much of our journey – her daughter (Kelly) and son-in-law (Matt) had been two of our Founding Members and Donna joined them at our Grand Opening. During our raffle giveaways, she won a free Base Camp package and joined! Since then, Donna has worked incredibly hard in the gym, not to mention also running around with two (soon to be 3) grand kids, and helping run the local Boys and Girls Club. Recently, Donna jumped on a 20-inch box – something that seemed impossible when she joined! Donna has always been supportive of the Kanna community and is a friendly face in the gym always ready for a good laugh and to cheer others on. Congratulations, Donna!

How does one become Member of the Month? By embodying the mission of CrossFit Kanna of Learning, Working Hard, and Having Fun. By contributing to the community and supporting others in and out of the workout. By being open to coaching and improving oneself for the sake of being better, not to “win” the workout. By just generally being a good person and having a positive attitude. And a lot more, but you get the idea!
