A WEEKEND OF WINNING, 18th – 20th March

The weekend of March 18th – 20th was a weekend of winning for our Optimistic community. First, as an Airrosti Supports Affiliates partner, we hosted CrossFit Games veterans Julie Foucher and Christy Adkins for 16.4 in Friday Night Lights.  Our Optimistic community cheered on all the athletes throwing down and had an upfront view watching two elite athletes display their skills and abilities. Absolutely incredible.  Thank you to Airrosti, Julie Foucher, Christy Adkins and our Optimistic community for evening an we will never forget.  You can see some great pictures and videos HERE.

On Sunday, our ruck team returned to White Sands Missile Range to participate in the annual Bataan Memorial Death March.  Our team marched in memory of not only the Bataan marchers but also for those brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.  Our Optimists sacrificed themselves to something greater than themselves.  So proud, so proud.  The team also had the privilege and honor to meet Oscar Leonard.  A survivor.  A true hero.  You can see Bataan Memorial Death March photos HERE.  For the Warriors.  Never Forget.
