We are counting down the days until the Outdoor Memorial Day “Murph” event! This exciting fitness event will take place in Long Lake, Minnesota. It includes a workout done in memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, New York, who was killed in Afghanistan in 2005. The workout includes the following: one-mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 air squats and a one-mile run.
Firefighters can choose to do the challenge in their gear, or without, and as written or scaled as much as needed. Departments are also welcome to take on the challenge as a team.
Half of the proceeds from this event will go to supporting MnFIRE’s mission of providing Minnesota’s firefighters with the resources they need to prioritize and protect their health. The other half will go to charities supporting veterans.
