Good Afternoon CFTP!
Today I want to jump right into the upcoming Memorial Day Murph. We are teaming up with the official Murph Foundation this year and that is where you can sign up and get your shirts and contribute directly to the foundation.
Here is the link! Get on today so you can get your shirts in time for the big day! https://themurphchallenge.com/pages/product-register
I love doing these Hero workouts because it gives us a chance to remember those who sacrificed their lives for our freedoms. I am so happy they set up this foundation so that they can use this tragic event to bless the lives of others. Not to mention… The shirts are pretty dope!
Here is a message from Lt. Murphy’s Dad:
“To My Fellow Patriots and Veterans, Maureen, John and I want to thank all who participated in last year’s Murph Challenge and welcome you to the 2019 Challenge, which marks the 14thyear anniversary of Operation Red Wings. First, I want to thank you for making 2018 one of the most successful. Your participation and generosity allowed the LT Michael P. Murphy Scholarship Foundation to add four new scholarships to be awarded this year which will directly benefit the Night Stalkers, the PJ’s and in memoriam of two Operation Red Wings members, Navy SEAL Dan Healy and Navy SEAL Michael McGreevy. Michael’s Foundation is now awarding 27 or more scholarships per year. In addition a contribution was made to the LT Michael Murphy Navy SEAL Museum. The museum will honor the legacies of SEALs ad educate future generations.
Michael believed “education will set you free” and we know he couldn’t be happier that his legacy is helping those furthering their education. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Forged for their unwavering support and working so hard to make sure the Murph Challenge continues to honor Michael and his Teammates. We are truly indebted to them for making sure the Murph Challenge not only grows every year, but that the two things that matter most are not forgotten, Michael and those that honor him by participating each year. It is with deep gratitude that I thank you all so much for honoring the service, life, sacrifice and legacy of my son Michael. I look forward to 2019 being another successful year because of YOU! On behalf of the Murphy family and Michael’s Foundation, I wish you all the best of luck and our deepest appreciation.”
If you want a Murph shirt this year, this is the way to do it. They are trying to have everyone who does Memorial Day Murph to funnel through this website to make sure it is going to the right cause so we are jumping on board.
Murph will be done this Memorial Day at The Point and you are more than welcome to invite others to come and join us for free on that day! Let’s take on the Murph Challenge!
I’ll leave you with a thought from Coach LaDee:
“What prompts us to feel useless and shameful? Our failures, our weaknesses, our previous activities and choices? These previous activities and choices are not the basis for our current identity. I am renewed every day. I don’t want to waste any hurt caused to me or by me. I want to use it to show love and to better myself.”
