WOD To End Veteran Suicide, Coraopolis, PA
August 22 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Come out and join us at:
Angry Mike’s Gym
938 4th Ave., Coraopolis, PA
20 veterans a day commit suicide, the WOD to End Veteran Suicide is for those who want to make a difference.
One of Active Heroes most popular events, the WOD to End Veteran Suicide is hosted at gyms and CrossFit boxes across the country. Partner gyms/boxes raise donations and raise awareness on behalf of Active Heroes to help further their mission of helping end veteran suicide. Please donate and/or purchase a ticket to get your Active Heroes t-shirt so that we can continue our mission to help reduce and hopefully eliminate suicide .
Each partner-gym/box creates their own WOD (Workout of the Day) with 22 exercises (22 is used because 22 suicides a day was the highest recorded number) and 22 reps of each. At minute 22 into the WOD, teams take a 2 minute moment of silence for those who have passed in the veteran suicide epidemic. All of this, in honor of the highest the veteran suicide rate has ever been: 22.
