Dozens of fitness fanatics from across South Florida gathered on Saturday in Fort Lauderdale to honor a fallen hero.
Hannah Eden, founder and owner of PumpFit Club in Fort Lauderdale, organized the free one-hour boot camp to honor the memory of Virginia deputy Curtis Bartlett, 32, who was killed in collision while pursuing a suspect in March.
“I often throw a big bootcamp event for local charities,” Eden said. “I feel it is my responsibility to spread awareness and stand up for the fallen.”
“Curtis was a hero and affected millions of lives. This is also about supporting local law enforcement, military and active duty heroes,” she said.
Supporters who came out to Holiday Park braved the heat while completing a fun, but challenging class that made sure to work every part of the human body.
In addition to the free boot camp, participants also gave generous donations that will benefit the Police Fitness Foundation.
“In the wake of his death, it has become our mission to keep his dream alive within our local community, and to raise money for officers o have vital resources they need to stay in shape,” Eden said.
Donations are being accepted at 408 N. Andrews Ave. in Fort Lauderdale or at RSPNutrition.com.
Uber CEO Travis Kalanick’s parents were involved in a boating accident on Friday that killed his mother and left his father badly injured.
The company, in a statement on Saturday, called the incident an “unspeakable tragedy” and said that Kalanick’s father remains in a “serious condition.” Kalanick’s mother, Bonnie, was 71.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Travis and his family in this heartbreaking time,” the Uber statement reads.
An email sent to Uber employees said that Kalanicks father is being treated at a hospital.
Kalanick’s parents, who went on frequent boating trips, were on Pine Flat Lake in Fresno County, California, when the accident occurred Friday.
The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that an investigation into the incident is underway. An autopsy is planned for Sunday.
“A preliminary report indicates the boat struck a rock and the man and woman on the boat suffered injuries from the collision,” the sheriff’s statement said.
Kalanick was close with his mother, a person familiar with the matter said. Just over a week ago, he shared a Facebook post for Mother’s Day with photos of them together, saying “I appreciate my mom, her infinite love and huge [heart] more and more.”
