On April 29th of this year, our CrossFit community will come together in gyms across the country to do the “Manion” Hero WOD. Thousands of athletes will put themselves through the rigors of this intense workout, and when they begin to hit that wall of exhaustion, they’ll think about Travis and all he sacrificed.
Zach Dorrow, Level 1 CrossFit Trainer, is hosting a special Open Gym today at 9am to do the Manion Hero WOD. All True Spirit CrossFit members are welcome. Please, no guests.
First Lieutenant Travis Manion, 26, of Doylestown, Pennsylvania, assigned to 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force, based in Camp Pendleton, California, was killed by sniper fire on April 29, 2007 while fighting against an enemy ambush in Anbar Province, Iraq. He is survived by his father, Colonel Tom Manion, mother Janet Manion, and sister Ryan Borek.
