  1. This is ridiculous. A little girl got sexually abused and murdered…and 2 years later a CrossFit gym, which has no ties to her what so ever, is using her name to get on the news so they can advertise their business? SMH…
    Sickening…
    What's next a Lily Garcia sign on discount, for new crossfit members?
