September Members of the Month Sara McComish & Matt Connolly
The forever CF couple
What a better month to have a special couple featured as our September Members of the Month. September is the month that Sara and Matt will tie the knot and get married! Sara and Matt have been with the FMCF family for almost a year now and have made a great impression already. Through CrossFit, Sara has been able to improve her strength and has become an even stronger runner, and Matt even got his first ever bar muscle up recently. They grew up in Toledo, OH and moved to St. Joseph almost 3 years ago. They absolutely adore their furry sidekick George and the family and community that they have encountered at FMCF. We thank them for being part of our family and congratulate them as our September Members of the Month. Happy Wedding! :)
