Early on the morning of September 11, 2001, nineteen hijackers took control of four commercial airliners en route to San Francisco and Los Angeles from Boston, Newark, and Washington, D.C. Planes with long flights were intentionally selected for hijacking because they would be heavily fueled. At 8:46 a.m., American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the World Trade Center’s North Tower, followed by United Airlines Flight 175, which hit the South Tower at 9:03 a.m.
Another group of hijackers flew American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon at 9:37 a.m. A fourth flight, United Airlines Flight 93, crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania at 10:03 a.m. local time after the passengers on board engaged in a fight with the hijackers. Its ultimate target is believed to have been either the Capitol or the White House.
Along with an increasing number of CrossFit boxes from all over the world, CrossFit Maximus will be hosting two WODs, one at 8:46 am, and the second at 10:03 am, to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001 Each WOD will be preceded by a minute of silence to remember the 2,977 people that were murdered on that day. We will also be taking donations for the Disposable Heroes Project, in honor of wounded and fallen heroes.
