Memorial Day Murph

Posted on: in [ Events ]

The Memorial Day Murph will be hosted by KiloTrained in Waverly. From their Facebook page, they describe the Memorial Day Murph as:

"KiloTrained Waverly invites you to join us for some sweating and suffering on Memorial Day to remember the real reason we acknowledge this day. Memorial Day is more than just a day off for BBQ or the unofficial start of summer -- this day is for ‘Merica. We will be doing a classic CrossFit Hero WOD, “Murph” and invite you to join us. Hero WODs are an opportunity to reflect on the sacrifices of the fallen – to speak their names and honor their memories.

This one is specifically to honor Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005. The 2013 movie Lone Survivor tells the story of Michael Murphy and his men based off the book written by Marcus Luttrell, the lone surviving SEAL from Murphy’s group."

This event is taking place on Monday, May 27 beginning at 7:00am at KiloTrained in Waverly - 195 20th St NW Waverly, IA 50677
