Stacie Tovar of Omaha and three teammates at a fitness competition donated their $5,000 winnings to an injured CrossFit athlete last month.
“CrossFit is totally all about the community, and it was a chance for us to give back and really be a part of that,” said Tovar, who recently quit her full-time job to train for CrossFit competitions.
Tovar placed third in the women’s individual competition. She joined Rich Froning, Elisabeth Akinwale and Chris Spealler for the team portion of the event.
The group, nicknamed “The Dream Team,” took first place at the East Coast Championships in Boston and won $5,000. They gave the cash prize to Kevin Ogar, 28, who was injured at a similar competition in January.
