Work up a sweat with CrossFitters from Salt de Terre gym on Saturday, Sept. 28th, for a very special special “workout of the day” in honor of fallen Coast Guard Lieutenant, Thomas Cameron. The event will raise funds for Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida programs throughout Duval County.
About Thomas Cameron:
Thomas Cameron, 24, was a U.S. Coast Guard Lieutenant Junior Grade, of Portland, Oregon. He was a good friend of one of Salt de Terre's favorite Coaches and fellow Coast Guard, Lt. Shea Quinn. Cameron died on February 28, 2012, when his unit's helicopter crashed into Mobile Bay in the Gulf of Mexico during a training mission. We will say a short remembrance, then workout in his honor and memory.
