This Memorial Day at 10 am, CrossFit Provision will be participating in a Community “Murph” WOD at the Kickapoo HS football stadium. Join us and other local CrossFit affiliates and crossfitters as we challenge the living by honoring the fallen. This will be the only WOD that CFP will offer on Memorial Day. Thank you to Axom Performance, Honor Him Gear, Jason Sweet with Kickapoo HS and Supplement Superstores for supporting and facilitating this event. We look forward to working out with our friends at CrossFit Springfield, CrossFit Republic, CrossFit 417 and others during this special Memorial Day event.
All proceeds will be split evenly between the Michael Murphy Scholarship Foundation and local hero Officer Aaron Pearson.
We look forward to seeing you there!
In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.
This workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he’d named it “Body Armor”. From here on it will be referred to as “Murph” in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.
Thank you to all who serve our country and protect our freedom and liberty! Saying ‘Thank you’ is in no way enough, but we are truly grateful for everything you do! On this Memorial Day let’s take the time to reflect on those fallen veterans who paid the ultimate sacrifice to help make this country what it is today.
