Two important events are coming up in the next couple of weeks, and we wanted to give you plenty of time to put the dates in your calendars!
“The Kidnapping of Jessica Buchanan”
Monday, August 25, 11:30a-2p
Meet Jessica Buchanan and listen as she shares her story of being kidnapped by Somali pirates and rescued by NAVY SEALS. This event at the Sarasota Yacht Club is a Benefit for the Brian Bill Foundation, an organization RFS members supported through our MURPH event last May. Grab some friends and reserve a seat (or a table). You won’t want to miss this! SEAL Richard Kaiser, Executive Director of the Navy SEAL Museum in Ft. Pierce, FL will also be there to talk about Navy Special Warfare. For tickets and more info, go to: brianbillfoundation.org
Monday, Sept. 1, 8a-Noon
The 31 Heroes Project was conceived in response to the Extortion 17 helicopter crash in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011 killing 30 military service members, as well as one military working dog. Many of the fallen were Special Operators from the Navy SEAL community.
The first 31 HEROES WOD was held four weeks after that tragic event, and now CrossFit gyms all across the country pay tribute to the 31 Heroes between August and September.
Real Fitness Sarasota will hold our 31 Heroes WOD on Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 1. We’ll be open 8a-noon, running heats on the hour. Our hope is that all our members participate in this grueling partner WOD and donate to the organization that supports the families of these fallen heroes. TO DONATE and to see the WOD, go to 31heroes.com.
