Darrin was a good friend of GCF and a stand up guy. We encourage you to participate in this local competition for a good cause. Knowing Darrin, he’d be tickled to see everyone get together in the name of fitness and community support! Consider signing up! This is a great competition for any of you who want to try out a competition.
The year of 2016 was a tragic year for Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas. In July of 2016 BRPD and BRSO lost 3 Officers Deputy Brad Garafola, Ofc. Matthew Gerald, and Corp. Montrell Jackson by one lone shooter. Ofc. Nick Tullier was also shot and is still hospitalized. Darrin was a huge supporter of our LEO's. In regard to this tragedy he wanted to give back to these families that were going through these hard times. It was at that time he put together the "Blue Movement" Event to raise money for these families. This was to be a CrossFit style competition at his store in Central, La. Pat's Home Center.
Before this event could take place, the historic flood hit Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas. Just another devastating blow to our community. In hopes to one day reschedule this event, the rebuilding of our cities became priority and the reschedule didn't happen.
Fast forward to January 2018 in a tragic hunting accident we lost Darrin, his sister in-law Madeline Hemba, and her son, Darrin's nephew, Joseph Hemba. Madeline and Joesph also enjoyed CrossFit workouts at Darrin's home gym with his family. This has been a major loss to our Zachary, St. Francisville, Clinton, Central Communities, Pat's Home Center, and CrossFit families. We miss them all often.
We want to finish what Darrin started and give back to our LEO'S, because that's what Darrin would have wanted.
