Monday, May 30th was Memorial Day. This day commemorates members of the United States military who died in the service of our country. It’s a day to remember those that have given all, so that we may continue to enjoy freedom, and life as we know it.
In CrossFit we have hero workouts to pay tribute to fallen servicemen. One of, if not the most famous of these is Murph, in honor of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy. This Saturday, June 4th is Murph Day 2011 (the 3rd Annual Navy SEAL Memorial Challenge), honoring Lieutenant Murphy and all fallen veterans.
At CrossFit Fenway we’ll be getting started at 9 AM this Saturday. If you’d like to participate please donate online, direct your donation toward the Navy SEAL Memorial Challenge, specify CrossFit Fenway in the comment section, and contact Eric to sign up. Any size donation is required to participate and proceeds will go to the Navy SEAL Foundation. This is in lieu of an invasion this weekend (so much for unknown and unknowable), but if you don’t sign up, there won’t be a spot for you in one of the heats.
