As a company who was built on its support of our Law Enforcement Officers and the United States Military, the past week has been heartbreaking for us. The police, fire fighters, and military members of the CrossFit community have been critical to our success and without them we would not be here today.
With that being said, we do not support and never will support the actions of bad cops or those who perpetuate racial hate in our beloved country. The murder of George Floyd was senseless, needless, and heart breaking for us to watch.
Boxstar is ran by three white males, and we can never attempt to understand the challenges that the black community or any other minority community has to endure, we do sympathize with the hurt that our nation is experiencing today.
As active members in the CrossFit community, and having been to hundreds of boxes and having met thousands of CrossFitters, we can say wholeheartedly that we have met incredible individuals in both the police community and the black community and we have seen firsthand the harmonious relationship the two communities can have together.
As a company who believes in equality for everyone, we dream of the day that the entire nation can experience the harmonious relationships we know to be possible, and we will do our best to help our entire nation to be #greaterthanyesterday.
United we stand, divided we fall.
