MURPH MARBELLA

On Saturday the 18th of April 2020 we are going to do something incredible for the second year in a row: use our fitness to raise money for Sarah Almagro Vallejo and the project “Forward with Sarah”.  This event will take place in the Marbella Stadium like in 2019, meaning you get to feel like a pro, working out in this amazing atmosphere. The workout we have planned for you is Murph – the most famous CrossFit memorial workout. All levels are welcome, as we offer an RX and Scaled version of the workout.

Forward with Sarah

Sarah was born on the 6th of March, 2000.

Sarah is a very sporty person who throughout her childhood and adolescence has played football, tennis, basketball, she has competed in swimming meets and in Judo tournaments. She has also practiced nordic-skiing, hikes and was actually doing CrossFit and surf when she became ill.

On the evening of the 23rd of July, 2018 she began to feel ill.  We found out a week later that she had picked up bacterium meningococcus Y.  This lethal bacterium caused her a sepsis and multi-organic shock.  We do not know how Sarah was infected, but we do know that it is transmitted through the respiratory system (sneeze, cough, etc…).   It also has an incubation period of 2 to 15 days.    

She was on the critical vital list for 5 days and under induced coma for 10 days, until she pulled out the respiratory tubes that kept her sedated.  During the first 72 hours in the Intensive Care Unit she was given medication that saved her life, but because of the bacterium´s attack and the effects of the medication, great damage was caused to her vascular system and her extremities were affected due to the lack of blood circulation.  A month later the doctors had to amputate her hands and feet due to a necrosis.   In the entire process, her kidneys were seriously damaged and so Sarah has undergone a kidney transplant, her father being the live donor.    They are both doing very well.

The fee for Murph Marbella is €20 per person and all funds will go towards for prosthetics that will allow Sarah to live a normal life, taking into account that hand prosthetics last from 6 to 8 years and feet prosthetics last from 3 to 4 years.  

She dreams of living independently, going to university and participating in sport competitions.  She would like to work and have a family.

Sarah´s life is on a standby until we help her to get back on to her feet and as enthusiasts of this sport, we can not think of a more suitable person to dedicate this charity event for.

THE WORKOUT MURPH
We are going to do CrossFit Hero Workout Murph, 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 there on it is 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.
