A local CrossFit gym will be holding a charity workout to honor a late U.S. Marine from Elmwood Park who died Memorial Day.
The WILLIAMS workout, honoring Cpl. Kenneth Richard Williams Jr., will begin at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, July 28.
A donation fee of $10 is requested. All proceeds will go toward Williams' family.
While on active duty, he served his country faithfully, deploying to Japan and Afghanistan multiple times.
More than $4,000 had been raised as of Tuesday on a GoFundMe for Williams' family .
"If you knew Kenny, you were lucky," says the page, launched by Reggie Harrison.
"He had such a big heart and was willing to give the shirt off his back, even to a stranger. He was a Marine’s Marine, always willing to go above and beyond and did it with a smile."
Empire Fitness, 15 Wallace St., Elmwood Park, (201) 773-3654
