Murph on Memorial Day Tribute & Fundraiser -- Get Set to Sweat!

Verne Strickland Blogmaster May 29, 2011

CrossFit Wilmington is hosting a “Murph on Memorial Day” Fundraiser on Monday, May 30th

We will be honoring all the men and women who serve, have served, and particularly, those who’ve fallen while serving in the Armed Forces … with sweat and a little pain.

Donations and proceeds will go to the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) and to the College Funds of Gunnar and Rogue Bitner.  

Gunnar and Rogue are the sons of fallen Green Beret and close friend to CFW, MSG Ben Bitner.  KIA, 23 APR 2011 – Afghanistan.  “Murph” named in honor of Navy Seal and Medal of Honor recipient  Lt. Michael Murphy, KIA, 28 JUN 2005 – Afghanistan, is known as one of the most grueling workouts in the CrossFit and military communities.
