Devil Dogg CrossFit and MBS Family Sport & Fitness will be hosting the 3rd Annual Memorial Day Murph this upcoming May 26th at the baseball field at Pueblo City Park. We will be remembering our veterans with the CrossFit Hero WOD Murph, a grueling workout made to honor Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.
25% of the proceeds raised from the event will go towards Veterans Overcoming Obstacles, an organization that provides support to veterans through fitness and camaraderie.
There will be several heats which will include an Elite Division (with weighted vests), RX individual, RX team, Open team and a kids (12 and under) mini Murph. The heats will start at 7:30am and run every hour.
