Event description

Description

Bare Hands CrossFit, in partnership with local veterans charity Songs4Soldiers, is hosting a Hero WOD Challenge on March 30, 2019. In Matt's memory, we raise funds to be donated immediately to Songs4Soldiers. Songs4Soldiers is a local, grassroots, nationally recignized veterans' charity organization that specializes in assisting veterans with daily relife and financial assistance all over the country. Since 2013 S4S has helped over 400 combat veterans and their families spending over $500,000. We're also hoping to raise awareness of Matt's sacrifice in the CrossFit community and abroad.

On Saturday, March 30, 2019, the event will start at 10:30 am, rain or shine. It's $10 (additional donations accepted) per person to enter (credit, cash, or check made out to Bare Hands CrossFit), the event is open to the public and is family-friendly. The Hero WOD Challenge consists of common bodyweight movements. The workout can be done Rx, or we will have several scaling options available, including a Team or Partner version. The main idea is to remember a fallen Hero and contribute to a fantastic cause.

We will provide water, beer, BBQ and tunes.

Matt's Story:

On April 9, 2004, Army Staff Sgt. Keith Matthew Maupin disappeared during the 2004 Iraq KBR Convoy Ambush in Bahgdad. Matt was held hostage by Iraqi insurgents for an undetermined amount of time and exectued before his remains were recovered March 21, 2008.

Matt Maupin was the first American soldier missing in action during the war in Iraq and symbolized the risk and sacrifice all soldiers made during the war.
