Ready, set ... go!

At CrossFit: DeForest, around 70 people turned out for its first-ever Murph event on Memorial Day, as CrossFit places all around the country did the same. Held to commemorate Navy Lt. Michael Murphy, who was killed in action, the event offers attendees the chance to do Murphy’s favorite work in honor of the fallen soldier. Members pictured here are starting the running portion. Last year, CrossFit: DeForest members took part in a similar event in Portage.
