31 Heroes WOD Today!

By Sean | In Events and Announcements | on September 3, 2011

I posted last Wednesday about today’s 31 Heroes Event. We’ll be honoring the sacrifice of the soliders involved in the August 6th shootdown of an American Chinook helicopter in Afghanistan killing all 31 souls on board. Not only will we be honoring their memories with our blood, sweat, and tears in today’s WOD, but by registering on the 31heroes.com website, your $31 will directly support the families of the fallen soliders in their time of need and you’ll receive a tee shirt to commemorate the event.

Because of Hurricane Irene, the delivery of the tee shirts has been delayed but should arrive sometime next week.  If you can’t make it to today’s 0900 or 1000 workout you can check this site to see if you can make it another CrossFit in your area or make a donation of any amount by clicking here.  Below is the list of the bulk of the American soliders involved in the Aug 6th incident and it is them and their families that we honor today.
