Boston firefighter Michael “Dork” Kennedy, 33, of Boston, Massachusetts, died fighting a nine-alarm fire on March 26, 2014. Kennedy served with the Boston Fire Department for six and a half years and was a Marine Corps sergeant who served a tour in Iraq before that.

He had a big presence in his local CrossFit community, coaching and training at several affiliates, including CrossFit Craic, CrossFit Florian, CrossFit Together and CrossFit HomeBase.

He is survived by his girlfriend, Sarah Wessman, and many other beloved friends and family members.

This “Dork” Hero WOD was first posted on the CrossFit main site as the workout of the day for October 10, 2018 (181010). 

In 2014, CrossFit Florian, one of the Boston gyms where Mike trained, created a workout in his name. See also: “Dork” (Florian) Hero WO
