PHOTOS: CKO Kickboxing Remembers Sharon Geraghty With ‘Some Planks and Hoot-n-Holler in Her Honor’

From CKO Kickboxing:

Today, December 16, at CKO Kickboxing Maplewood, the regular 11 a.m. class was replaced with the Sharon Geraghty 90-Minute Tribute.

It’s been one year since she left us. We miss her. We love her. We didn’t think we could go on without her. Over 50 people signed up to do some planks and hoot-‘n’-holler in her honor. (Anyone who took a Sharon class knows this would make her very proud.)

The class was 90 minutes long with nine CKO trainers kicking butt, showing off their best moves and raising funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital — Sharon’s charity of choice. We had a lot of fun too: DJ, giveaways, and a sampling of local treats. Bonji Bowls, soon to open in Maplewood Village, offered post-class treats for all.

The final trainer was a surprise for all. An audio recording of one of Sharon’s classes was played and everyone planked and cheered (and cried a little) as they finished up an amazing workout.

More than $1500 was raised (not counting donations made directly to St. Jude).
