    I'm not sure which was the most appropriate forum to post this in, but I figured this is where it would get the most exposure. I saw this on my former CrossFit gym's blog and thought RJ would be a good place to spread the word...



    From the website:

    On September 3, 2011 CrossFit gyms across the nation and world will gather together to honor our heroes killed in action August 6, 2011 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, other like-organizations, and individual family funds.

    The Workout

    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 the those that have gone before us. We hope you’ll join us for this moment of silence.

    Who Benefits?

    100% of proceeds will go to families immediately affected through the Navy SEAL Foundation, other like-organizations, and individual family funds.

    Get Involved

    -Register for the workout under the “Registration” tab – $31 gets you the workout & a t-shirt
    -Find a local CF affiliate hosting the event. Not involved with a box already? Check out the list of affiliates here to find one near you. If they’re not already hosting, recommend that they do icon_smile.gif
    -Show up on September 3rd and honor our heroes. Times will vary by location, so please check with your local affiliate for event times.
    -Not interested in a workout? You can still donate by clicking the donations tab above, however if you’d like to receive a t-shirt you must register for the event.

    AMRAP 31 Min (As Many Reps [Rounds?] As Possible)
    8 Thrusters (155/105)
    6 Rope Climbs (15 ft. ascent)
    11 Box Jumps (30/24)

    This is a Partner WOD – Partner #1 will perform the work listed above. Partner #2 will run 400m with a sandbag (45/25). Once Partner #2 returns from the run, Partner #1 will grab the sandbag and begin their 400m, while Partner #2 continues work wherever #1 left off.

    Score – Total # of reps

    I'm planning on hitting up my former CrossFit box to do the workout and donate...and you all should do the same! Find a local participating CrossFit box to get a great workout and donate to a good cause!

    Thanks! I'll be sure my CF trainers get the word. (Out to both of them, BTW. They're very cool guys.)
