31 Heroes WOD
As you all know on August 5th the United States lost 31 of it’s finest citizens and bravest soldiers. On September 3, 2011 CrossFit gyms across the nation and world will gather together to honor our heroes killed in action with a workout in an effort to raise funds for the families affected by this tragedy. All funds received will go to these families through the Navy SEAL Foundation.
The workout promises to be a unique Hero WOD. Thirty-one of America’s bravest have made the ultimate sacrifice for our sake. We can all agree that no workout will ever be enough to say thank you, but among this community it almost seems to be our version of the “moment of silence”, a small way we can honor those that have gone before us. We hope you’ll join us for this event.
In regards to the specifics of the Hero WOD, it is still in the process of being created. We will provide more information as it becomes ready.
Visit the 31Heroes website for more details and to register/donate. Please feel free to come and participate in the workout even if you decide not to register through the official website. CrossFit Connex is proud to participate in such a worthy cause.
