Hero Workout – 9am Saturday 3/16/19


Tomorrow (Saturday) at 9am we are honoring a decorated local soldier’s life and sacrifice. Honoring our fallen soldiers is something we do regularly at CFR for good reason. His family will be there to watch, his cousin singing the national anthem, as everyone does the Hero workout in his name. Anyone is welcome to participate.

This event is called the Maltz Challenge, an event internationally put on each year by the DEA, honoring a local hero in each area. Childcare available until 10:40am. We will release in heats every 5 minutes, as we expect a good turnout. You can do this in 4 man or 2 man teams or as an individual. ????????????????????????????????????????
