31 Heroes event raises money for families of those killed when helicopter was shot down

CrossFit Rowan took part in a 31 Heroes fundraiser event on Saturday, Sept. 3, raising money for the families of 31 soldiers killed Aug. 6 when the helicopter they were in was shot down during a battle in Afghanistan.
The victims included 22 Navy SEALS, three Air Force airmen and five Army helicopter crewmen.
The fundraiser had 15 people participating in the 31 Heroes event while 5,000 competed in more than 400 CrossFit gyms worldwide.
More than $200,000 was raised through the Navy SEAL Foundation.
The 31 Heroes workout was meant to be challenging. It consisted of as many reps as possible in 31 minutes of eight barbell thrusters, six climbs up a 15-foot rope, 11 box jumps and a 400-meter run carrying a sandbag.
Participants were paired in teams of two, alternating the gym movements with the sandbag run.
Everyone had a great time and got an amazing workout.
