Nina Fredeen

February 23, 2005 - February 21, 2011

"Nina is like a ray of sunshine. Once you meet her, it is hard not to fall in love and want to spend time with her. She is warm, full of sass and sweetness, with the most contagious sense of humor. It is hard to be around Nina and not smile, even when she is beastly! Her heart is generous and she is eager to be happy, even in the middle of turmoil. Nina's presence, like sunshine, brightens everything!" – Rosy Freeden (Nina's mother)

CrossFit Goodland and H.E.E.A.L. have teamed up to raise funds and support for some great local causes through the medium of a competitive workout. On Saturday, April 30th we will be hitting a WOD called "Nina" to honor Nina Freeden, who recently died from an inoperable brainstem tumor at the age of 5 just shy of her 6th birthday. Sign-up will cost 25$ and proceeds will benefit both H.E.E.A.L. and "Praying for Nina." The workout will be released next week, but you can sign up with the link at the bottom of the page.

What is H.E.E.A.L.?

Hope through Exercise, Energy, and Art for Life will serve as a facility in the Santa Barbara community that offers an alternative to traditional talk-therapy when dealing with grief and loss.  We will focus on creative and physical outlets involving exercise, energy and art to advocate healthy and holistic healing.
