In memory of Sam Saimo, 21, of Snoqualmie, WA, who died on August 20, 2016. Sam was a beloved member of SnoRidge CrossFit. He is survived by his parents, Dan and Jeannie; brother Will; and sister Julia. With heavy hearts we offer our prayers and condolences to his family, friends and loved ones.
Carrying the ball signifies carrying Sam with you. Do not put him down. He loved running, heavy deadlifts and rope climbs. Climbing to 20 feet puts you a little closer to him.
We have also created a shirt/tank top for “Saimo”. This shirt honors Sam with an emblem of three of his passions; CrossFit, Mountain Biking, and Photography. The accent color is blue like his eye color. On the left rib cage are the verses of his tattoo (also on his left side), which are the final lines of the the poem “Invictus” by William Ernest Henley.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
We wanted a shirt that did not blatantly state his name, but rather would be symbolic of Sam and remind the wearer of him.
There will be a preorder beginning Saturday for the T-shirt. We will have men’s T’s (American Apparel 50/50 Black T’s) and women’s T’s and Tanks (Next Level Black 50/50 T shirts and Tri-blend Racerback tanks – loose and Bella Canvas Black Racerback tanks – tight). They will cost $20.
Each shirt/tank top sold we will donate $5 to the Saimo family, the rest will go to cover the production costs. We will make no money from it. The money raised will not be much, but will hopefully help the Saimo family. The preorder will be posted in our FaceBook group but you can also email us to order a shirt.
We will program this WOD annually going forward.
