What better time to highlight an awesome fundraiser for our veterans than a few days before our country’s birthday? Let’s be honest, any time is a great for that!

Last week, TrvFit in Perrysburg hosted an event called “The Murph Challenge” to help raise funds for local veterans.

The Murph Challenge is an event known across our nation as a workout to honor one of our fallen veterans, Lt. Michael P. Murphy (SEAL).  Murphy was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2005 when he left a position of cover, with knowingly great danger, to transmit a call to get help for his men.  By exposing himself, he was heroically able to make the call for backup amid increased enemy gunfire. Even after being shot, he continued to fight on with his team, but was eventually killed. The Murph honors his sacrifice and memory. 

The Murph Challenge is appropriately named… Murph + Challenge.  Overall, the challenge combines a 1 mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats and one more 1 mile run (for good measure). Afterall, we’re honoring a SEAL. 

Through this event, TrvFit was able to raise $1,000 for Northwest Ohio non-profit, HOOVES, which works with veterans to help them heal, regain control and return to the life they fought to protect.

This is an event they do every year (normally around Memorial Day), but this year, having it be TrvFit’s first “community event” since quarantine, made it even more special.  It was a great time to come together as a community (in person, but safely). They brought people from all over together for this and even had their own cheering session with many of their members.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, our community truly is a special one!  Events like this make me so proud to call Northwest Ohio, “home”!
