Good luck to everyone running the Coopersburg 5k this Saturday. Stop out to support the many runners representing CrossFit Threefold and all the runners supporting a great cause for the local community. There will be a health and Wellness Expo from 7:45 am-11:30 am at the Village Center on Main Street in Coopersburg. Come out and enjoy!
***WE WILL BE HOLDING ALL REGULAR CROSSFIT CLASSES THIS WEEKEND***
Then on Monday come out for another great cause:
Everyone is invited. Stop out to have fun, challenge yourself, and, make a difference!
As we have announced we will be holding “Murph” on Memorial Day Monday starting at 9am. This is the only scheduled class on Monday Memorial Day. This is a hero WOD in honor Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005. He was 29, of Patchogue, N.Y. Lt Murphy was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor after his death. CrossFits and others do this WOD around the world Memorial Day weekend. We put in the work and push through the suck to honor brave people as Lieutenant Michael Murphy was.
This year for Murph we are also going to honor a very special little girl who is fighting her own battle right now. Many of you may know her or know of her as she and her family are a big part of the local community. Her name is Jillian and she was recently diagnosed with a form of brain cancer.

Everyday is different for her and some days are very hard. At CFT we wanted to honor this little girl for being so brave and continuing to fight hard through her battle with brain cancer. So this year for Murph we are adding a yellow ribbon on our Murph shirts and donating proceeds to pediatric cancer as this is where the family would like money to go to. We will also have a jar if anyone would like to donate that day.
On Monday the 30th when you come in to grind through this WOD remember while it may be hard and you may want to stop, many people out there do not have a choice to stop… they must keep fighting through as their lives depend on it. We look forward to pushing ourselves through our limits for this one as we know someone out there is always fighting harder then we are!
