There's being a weekend warrior in your workout routines.
And then there's beinga weekend warrior to help benefit local organizations and honor all those who lost their lives during 9/11.
Crossfit Oswego is hosting their second annual 9/11 343 Workout of the Day, which aims to honor the 343 firefighters, 60 police department men and women and all the others that gave their lives that day.
As such, the workout titled “343 Memorial 9/11 WOD” and consists of workouts that include the numbers 60, 23 and 37. 60 represents the police department men and women that died in the 9/11 attacks, 23 represents the NYPD men and women and 37 represents the Port Authority Officers men and women.
Last year the event raised $5,000 for Camp I Am Me.
The workout will take place at the Oswego Crossfit, 38 Stonehill Rd., on Saturday, Sept. 7 from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. with heats going off in half hour increments. Miranda asks athletes to arrive at least half an hour prior to their workout.
Special heats honoring firefighters, police and military will take place between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
The cost of the workout is $20 and t-shirts can be purchased for an additional $20, non-participants are welcome to purchase shirts as well. 100 percent of the profits will go towards the two charities.
