Little Jake fundraiser WOD



Help us help Jake!

Sam Rodriguez is a good friend to Granite City CrossFit and owner/founder Jeremy Lang. Sam’s son Jake was diagnosed with Lymphoma Nov 2, 2018. Sam lost his wife Erika (mom to Jake and his twin brother) to Leukemia 6 yrs. This time of year we at GCC has usually always collected food and toiletries for a local shelter. This year we would like to help Sam and his family with a fundraiser to help with time off of work and other misc. expenses while Jake goes through chemo treatments and other hospitalizations that will be ongoing over the next few yrs.

About the WOD

We anticipate many athletes so please RSVP as soon as possible. Because of space and equipment, we will also run the workout in waves.


On Friday, November 2, the Rodriguez's lives forever changed. Initially, Jake was having issues with belabored breathing, which has quickly led them to a diagnosis of a form of blood cancer, which specific blood cancer is yet to be determined.

As a bit of a back story, Jake has a twin brother Ben. Jake and Ben's mom Erika passed away from Acute Myeloid Leukemia(AML) when the boys were 3 years old. Sam, their dad, married Katie in April of 2016 and they had Cole in February of 2017. Jake and Ben have spent their entire short lives honoring their mom and keeping her memory alive, their goal has always been to raise enough money so that no other child has to lose their mom to blood cancer. In 2017, they were honored as the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's(LLS) 2017 Boys of the Year. As you can imagine, never in their wildest dreams did any of the family or friends think they would be down this road again. We have learned that the road for Jake and the entire the family will be long with many unknowns. This battle will take great strength and faith, there is no doubt they that strength and faith and is unwavering. Sam and Katie are two of the most kind and generous people, they are always there for others in their time of need. They are the first to provide support, now it's our turn to help alleviate some of their worry. Many have been asking what they can do to help them through this scary time. Therefore, this is being set up to help reduce the great financial cost that comes with fighting cancer. Anything you are able to give will allow them to not worry about the fianical portion of this fight and focus and getting Jake well. "Fear not, for I am with you, be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

An annual CrossFit tradition, affiliates all over the world, perform the Hero WOD....

(For time)
1 mile Run
100 Pull-ups
200 Push-ups
300 Squats
1 mile Run

*With a 20lb vest (body armor) for the men and 14lb vest (body armor) for the ladies.

In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.

This workout was one of Mike's favorites and he'd named it "Body Armor". From here on it will be referred to as "Murph" in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.

Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you've got a twenty pound vest or body armor, wear it.


Because we want to spend time with our friends and family and some people may be traveling...we will do "Murph" on a Saturday morning rather than Monday.
OPEN to the public, contact us if you plan to drop-in.
