CrossFit Austin will be hosting Murph Day Saturday (7/4/2015) honoring the memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy and all fallen veterans. Liutenant Murphy was killed in Afghanistan on June 28th, 2005. This workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he named it “Body Armor”. We will honor a focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.

In the past, our annual MURPH Day has benefited the Navy SEAL Foundation. Last year, we decided to band together and help out a member of our own community. This year, we’d like to continue strengthening our community by opening donations to The Barnabas Connection.
The Barnabas Connection provides access to health & human services, client advocacy, and community education. Services focused in Wimberley and Hays County include advocacy with local service providers; annual events that provide for specific community needs, and encouraging education and discussion among community leaders about the issues of poverty.
The Barnabas Connection is working in coordination with local and state officials to respond to the devastating rain and flooding that impacted the Wimberley Valley on Saturday night, May 23, 2015.
We have seen an outpouring of generosity with donations and volunteers from CrossFit Austin aiding in the flood relief efforts and we are honored to be able to continue that effort.
Upon registration you may specify which cause you would like your donation to go to. We will also be taking donatons on site for both charities. In addition, you may donate directly to either foundation through Navy SEAL Foundation or Barnabas Connection
“I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.” – Vince Lombardi
