On Saturday, January 26th, 2013, Invictus will be hosting an incredibly meaningful and awesome event that will make you sweat for something greater than yourself – the SFHW Vengeance Charity event! Together we will perform a hero memorial workout – the Vengeance WOD – and sweat in remembrance of the 7 Marines who died on February 22nd, 2012 in a training accident in Yuma, Arizona.
Together our goal is to raise over $1,000 for SEMPER FIDELIS HEALTH and WELLNESS (SFHW), a non-profit 501(c)(3). This organization brings a whole new meaning to holistic health when working with wounded warriors. SFHW is dedicated to improving the lives of all their members through health and wellness, with a special concern for those who suffer from wounds and injuries, post traumatic stress disorder and other combat related illnesses, chronic pain, disease, obesity and addiction.
7 Rounds for time (with a 20 minute time cap):
Power Snatch x 4
Power Clean x 6
Deadlift x 9
You will be able to sign up for heat times for the workout. Some of your favorite vendors – Not So Fast Paleo Food Truck and Life As RX, to name a few, will be at the event. We will also hold a raffle with cool prizes to raise money for the charity. You can donate in person or online: http://sfhw.kintera.org/invictuscrossfit
If you are a wounded or injured athlete and interested in participating, we want you there and will be able to adjust the workout accordingly, so please email [email protected] for details.
