Story

Just over a year ago Jessica Fairclough was a happy 17 year old doing all the things that happy 17 year old girls do. Her packed funeral took place in December after her little body couldn’t cope with a particularly nasty and rare form of cancer. A beloved only child, friend to many of all ages and adored grandchild and niece, we all knew that Jessica had been a special child and was becoming a special young woman. But none of us, not even her gorgeous family, realised just how special until tributes and eulogies came flooding in from people whose lives she’d changed, helped and touched. A talented musician and creative imp she has left us a legacy of goodness to enjoy after her passing. But her legacy lives on. When Jess was told she had days to live she said, ‘not everybody is meant to live a long time. And that’s okay’. When asked what she wanted for a treat she asked simply for £125 to give to a homeless person because that’s what they’d need to have a good week. Crossfit is a challenging fun sport for all ages based on community. Each Workout of the Day is named after a hero. Jess is our hero and we’d like you to celebrate her and take the Fairclough challenge in her name to raise money for the charity who helped her smile when not even her 3 dogs could. Come and join us and meet the Fairclough Challenge in her name. She would’ve for you.
