Remember the Heroes is a charitable event held annually on Memorial Day by CrossFit Discovery. Hundreds of athletes come together in Charleston, SC to complete 100 CrossFit Hero WODs.

We will never forget the tremendous sacrifices made for our freedom. 100% of all registration fees, donations and sponsorships will benefit the Travis Manion Foundation and The Citadel'sWarren A. Frank Leadership Fund.
ABOUT THE FOUNDATIONS
Shortly after the death of 1st Lt. Travis Manion in Iraq on April 29, 2007, the fallen Marine’s mother, the late Janet Manion, founded the Travis Manion Foundation to assist our nation’s veterans and families of the fallen. TMF engages with veterans and families of the fallen in all stages of their personal journeys and offers them unique opportunities to empower them to achieve their goals. TMF believes that the best way to honor the fallen is by challenging the living. TMF challenges veterans and survivors to lead the “If Not Me, Then Who…” movement and inspire others to continue the service to community and country exemplified by the nation’s fallen heroes.
2. In memory of Marine Capt. Warren A. Frank, Citadel Class of 2004. Frank was killed in Iraq in November 2008 while delivering humanitarian aid. He is one of 15 Citadel graduates to have died in the line of duty since the war began.
The money raised will go into a fund to pay for leadership development opportunities for cadets and active duty military students

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. Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you've got a twenty pound vest or body armor, wear it.(http://www.crossfit.com/mt-archive2/000881.html)
