We do this WOD for and in memory of Ben Koon, our good friend’s, Brian Koon’s brother. Ben passed away Wednesday, September 11, 2013 from battling Leukemia for over 8 years. Ben had 3 relapses during the 8 year fight with cancer. He was quite the fighter. All the numbers in this WOD are relevant to his date of birth 9-4-85, the 8 years he fought this disease and the 3 relapses he had. We named this WOD after him because of the Fighting Spirit he had with such a terrible disease. Since Ben was part Japanese he found it fitting to tattoo the symbols “Fighting Spirit” on him.
RIP Ben Koon. September 4, 1985 – September 11, 2013
