    The outpouring of love and support for a Connecticut state trooper continues more than two weeks after he was killed in an on-duty car crash.

    At Tolland CrossFit, Sunday’s workout of the day was created in honor of Trooper First Class Kevin Miller.

    Miller was killed in a crash on I-84 in Tolland on March 29, 2018.

    Participants at Sunday’s workout planned to do a 300-meter run, 29 sit-ups, and 18 wall balls in honor of that day.

    The 19-minute long workout is in honor of Miller’s years of service. A steady stream of people came in to participate all this morning, both adults and children.

    The idea came from one of Miller’s comrades, a member of this gym and local state trooper. He told NBC Connecticut that he was surprised by the tremendous response.

    “It took off quick. I thought it was kind of going to be like an internal gym kind of thing, just maybe some people from our community here and when they told me there were gyms across the state that were shutting down and their members were coming up for this it felt good,” said Trooper Chris Church, who serves at Troop C.

    The workout is free, but donations are being accepted to help Miller’s family. The event runs through noon Sunday.
