How to Participate in “31Heroes”

The “31Heroes” WOD is an annual fundraiser put on by The 31Heroes Project to honor those killed in action on August 6, 2011 and raise funds for programs that support surviving families of all fallen military heroes. The proceeds will be given directly to these programs by The 31Heroes Project.   Cost to participate is $31 and all proceeds benefit the families.  Register before July 20 and get your shirt in time for the WOD!

History

The 31Heroes Project was conceived in response to the downing of Extortion 17, a Chinook military helicopter, in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011 killing 30 military service members as well as one military working dog. Many of the fallen were Special Operators from the Navy’s SEAL community.

Men and women from all branches of our armed forces give their lives every day in defense of our freedom, sometimes with minimal recognition for their sacrifice or their family’s sacrifice. The events of August 6, 2011 drove us to recognize our responsibility as Americans to take care of the surviving families of this particular tragedy, but also to take action in support of all families of our fallen military heroes. Thus, the 31Heroes Project was born.

CrossFit Paso Robles is honored to be hosting this WOD and we are asking for everyone to participate.  As with every CrossFit workout, is is scalable for all ages, fitness levels and abilities.
