We will be hosting the Murph Challenge on Memorial Day from 3-7pm. We will be having a bbq outside, and a ice pool to recover in! The workout is:
1 mile run
300 air squats
1 mile run
This workout will can be scaled for beginners if you just want to come try. If you do not want to do it but would like to come watch and hangout, that's fine too! This event is FREE at our gym but we will be taking donations for the LT. Michael P. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Foundation.

Here is a little info about the Murph Challenge.
The Murph Challenge is the Official annual fundraiser of the LT. Michael P. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Foundation, presented by Forged®. It is also one of the primary means of funding for the Foundation on an annual basis. YOUR support is what drives our success!
Over the last two years, Forged® has raised nearly $400,000 for the LT. Michael P. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Foundation through The Murph Challenge campaign. With such overwhelming support and success, the Foundation was able to add three additional scholarships in 2015, now providing the opportunity to award 21 or more scholarships each year!
This unique Memorial Day tradition will take place again throughout the United States on May 30, 2016. We invite YOU to join countless others Americans, and register for The Murph Challenge 2016.
Once you register, you will not only be pledging to participate in the Crossfit Hero WOD ‘MURPH’ (originally named ‘Body Armor’), you will also be joining a unique group of Americans who pay tribute to LT. Michael P. Murphy (SEAL), and contributing to a prestigious organization founded by the Murphy family.
The ’MURPH’ is more than just a workout, it is a tradition that helps push us, humble us, and dedicate a bit of pain and sweat to honor a man who gave everything he had.
