We have sad news to report as the first day of the 2020 CrossFit Games breaks. Kelly Brown, CF- L4 and subject matter expert in CrossFit Kids passed away on Tuesday, September 15, 2020.

Kelly began her CrossFit journey in 2006; in 2007 she and John, her husband opened their garage gym for their first clients. Her gym CrossFit Agoge benefited from her expertise as a Physical Therapist focusing on orthopedics, sports medicine and pediatrics. She served on the CrossFit Kids HQ staff for a decade.

From the CrossFit Training IG:

“Kelly is survived by her husband, John, and their two beautiful children, a 14-year-old son named Quinn and 11-year-old daughter named Wesleigh. An incredible wife, mother, teacher, coach, affiliate owner, and friend, Kelly contributed so much to all whose lives she touched, and her loss has rocked the CrossFit Kids’ Team, the CrossFit Training Department, and the CrossFit community as a whole. Kelly made everyone and everything she was involved in better. She will be sorely missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.”

There is a GoFundMe page set up for her family. Please take a look and donate.
