Memorial Day Murph Fundraiser Raises Over $2,000 For Veterans

The 2018 Memorial Day Murph Fundraiser  at Ultimate Fit Zone in Monmouth County for Unbroken Warriors has raised over $2,000 for the organization.  Unbroken Warriors is a local Holmdel, NJ organization founded by a combat veteran who struggled with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder upon returning home from service.  After experiencing first hand how expensive and difficult it was for him to receive treatment, he set up the organization to help others manage their PTSD symptoms and regain control of their lives.

Murph is a popular CrossFit workout named in honor of Lt Michael Murphy of Patchogue, NY.  He was killed while on duty in Afghanistan. The workout, which encompasses a 1 mile run followed by 100 pull-ups, 200 pushups, 300 squats and a final 1 mile run, was his favorite.  Ultimate Fit Zone’s fundraiser attracted more than 40 people who came to show their thanks to America’s service men and women with a donation to Unbroken Warriors and participation in the workout in honor of Michael Murphy.

The Murph Fundraiser at the Monmouth County cross training gym will be an annual tradition.  In 2019, the gym hopes to exceed their collected donations and again support Unbroken Warriors.
