(Fairfield, Calif. – June 3rd, 2014) – On Saturday May 24th at Half Moon Bay Golf Links, more than 200 supporters came out for the 2014 Navy SEAL Memorial Challenge, an athletic fundraiser to benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation.
The day’s activities centered around a special CrossFit ® workout to honor Naval Special Warfare fallen heroes, a Tribute Cup golf tournament, memorial ceremony and community reception.
HumanX by Harbinger, provided 20LB Weighted Vests for the 89 “Murph” CrossFit® Hero WOD participants, which included crossfitters as well as former and active Nay Seals and military personnel. The CrossFit ® WOD was led by CrossFit Games champion Jason Khalipa,Miranda Oldroyd, and NorCal CrossFit’s world-class coaching team.
Set against dramatic cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the group WOD started and finished with a 1-mile run and included 100 Pull-ups, 200 Push-ups, and 300 Air Squats. Adjustable weighted vests from HumanX by Harbinger were provided for WOD athletes, who were assigned options appropriate for their fitness levels.
HumanX represents Human To The Power of X, and one’s ability to harness their power to achieve the personal fitness goals. “We are truly honored to have supported this year’s Navy SEAL Memorial Challenge and provide the 20# Weight Vests for the CrossFit® Hero WOD,“ says Chanin Cook, Harbinger’s Director of Marketing. “It was truly inspiring to watch the athletes dig deep – and deeper – to honor the 89 Fallen Seals in such a meaningful and relevant way.”
The “Murph” CrossFit ® Hero WOD is named in memory of Congressional Medal of Honor recipient Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy. The 89 athletes and former special operator guests represented the 89 Fallen Heroes, whom the Naval Special Warfare community has lost during training and in combat since September 11, 2001. All event proceeds benefited the Navy SEAL Foundation, which provides immediate and ongoing assistance to the Naval Special Warfare community and their families.
