Crossfit Clan is committed to supporting the community that we live in as well as our men and women in uniform. We are proud to be Official Hosts of the Murph Challenge. Some of you may know the story of Lt. Michael Murphy as told in the movie “Lone Survivor” starring Mark Wahlberg. Others may have witnessed Crossfit’s Elite athlete’s compete in “The Murph Challenge” as one of the WODs in the 2015 Crossfit Games. Now you have the opportunity to test your fitness and commitment as part of a world wide fundraising event.
How the event has grown.
ALL for a good cause.
The Murph Challenge is the Official annual fundraiser of the LT. Michael P. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Foundation, presented by Forged®. It is also one of the primary means of funding for the Foundation on an annual basis. YOUR support is what drives our success!
Over the last three years, Forged® has raised nearly $800,000 for the LT. Michael P. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Foundation through The Murph Challenge campaign. With such overwhelming support and success, the Foundation was able to add four additional scholarships in 2016, now providing the opportunity to award 22 or more scholarships each year!
This unique Memorial Day tradition will take place again throughout the United States on 05.29.17. We invite YOU to join countless others Americans, and register for The Murph Challenge 2017 today by clicking the button below!
Once you register, you will not only be pledging to participate in the Crossfit Hero WOD ‘MURPH’ (originally named ‘Body Armor’), you will also be joining a unique group of Americans who pay tribute to LT. Michael P. Murphy (SEAL), and contributing to a prestigious organization founded by the Murphy family.
Beginning on Memorial Day, each registrant will be asked to return to TheMurphChallenge.com and submit their ‘MURPH’ time to compare their achievement with other participants throughout the US. All times submitted will be displayed on a National leaderboard found at TheMurphChallenge.com. From that board, the top 5 Men and top 5 Women will be recognized for their efforts.
The ’MURPH’ is more than just a workout, it is a tradition that helps push us, humble us, and dedicate a bit of pain and sweat to honor a man who gave everything he had.
Are YOU up for the Challenge?
