Victoria Soto was one of the teachers killed while attempting to shield her students in the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting (Newtown, CT, USA) on December 14, 2012. She was a CrossFitter.
The significance of the reps: She was a teacher for 5 years; the tragedy happened in room 10 on 12/14/12; and her life got cut short at the age of 27.
The workout was initially posted on Facebook by MyBoxLive with a call to athletes to do the workout in her memory on December 29, 2012 at their local boxes. The event creator posted the WOD with this comment: "I'm a teacher myself, and I felt helpless when I was sitting in my own classroom hearing the news that children and teachers were murdered. I looked at my students and couldn't help but think what if...I can only hope that I would have the courage to do what Victoria did."
