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, & individual family funds.
CrossFit RVA will be participating, hosting workouts at 9am, with as many additional heats as necessary to allow everyone to workout. The regular team workout on 9/3 will be canceled to run the 31Heroes workout.
The workout promises to be a unique Hero WOD. 31 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.
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. Thank you!
