Memorial Weekend Community Grill Out and Murph Challenge
May 29, 2016, 11:00am - May 29, 2016, 3:00pm
Please join this community event at Engineered Per4mance (Home of CrossFit Prairie Trail) to support your Polk City, Ankeny, and Des Moines firefighters. Murph is a CrossFit workout that is done on Memorial Day each year by thousands of people in memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.
Your local firefighters want to do this challenge in their UNIFORMS - talk about hardcore!
Come hang out at Engineered Per4mance, walk around our fitness facility if you've been wanting to check it out, and help us cheer on the firefighters and other participants while they do the workout.
