5/29/17 Memorial Day "Murph" Event

Murph Day 2017

On Monday, May 29th from 8am to 1pm, we'll be doing our annual Memorial Day "Murph" workout. This is a great community event where we perform this classic CrossFit benchmark workout followed by some grilling, side dishes, and beers. The workout is tough—very tough—but it can, of course, be scaled to meet everyone's capacity.
 
For the second year in a row, we'll be raising money to benefit K9s for Warriors, an organization that provides service dogs for veterans suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disability, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma as a result of military service post-9/11. Founded in 2011 by Shari Duval with the hopes of pairing 12 Warrior-Canine teams a year, the program has graduated over 263 Warrior/canine teams. 90% of the dogs in the program come from rescue shelters or are owner-surrendered.

 


Why should you support K-9s for Warriors?
  • There are 184 new cases of PTSD diagnosed every day from the ongoing wars in Iraq & Afghanistan.
  • 22 veterans of these wars commit suicide each day. 
  • Too often, prescription drugs are the only answer given to a veteran. The average warrior is on 10-15 medications when he begins the program. 92% will eliminate or reduce prescription medications after they graduate from K9s For Warriors.
  • More than 3.5 million dogs are euthanized in animal shelters every year. Many are wonderful dogs that can be trained to be service dogs for disabled veterans. 

You can learn more about the program and read success stories on the K-9s for Warriors website.

"Murph"

For time:
1 Mile Run
100 Pull-Ups
200 Push-Ups
300 Squats
1 Mile Run

In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.

This workout was one of Mike's favorites and he'd named it "Body Armor." From here on it will be referred to as "Murph" in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.

Partition the Pull-Ups, Push-Ups, and Squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you've got a twenty pound vest or body armor, wear it.

There is no charge for the workout, nor will it be deducted from your weekly class limit.
