Body By Boris Hosting Memorial Day Murph To Raise Funds For VeteransMay 9th, 2015 by gainesvillechamber
Join Body By Boris on Memorial Day to honor fallen military members while raising funds for the Jonathan Cote Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship aids veterans at Santa Fe College and The University of Florida in paying for semester tuition and books. The scholarship was started by Chirs “Boris” Marhefka, owner of Body By Boris, in honor of his friends, Jonathan Cote, who was killed in action overseas in 2006.
The workout Body By Boris is hosting on Memorial Day is called the Murph. It was a favorite of fallen LT. Michael P. Murphy, a Navy Seal who received the Medal of Honor in 2007 after he fatally led his team on a mission to capture a key Taliban leader in 2005.
The Murph consists of a one mile run, 300 squats, 200 push-ups, 100 pull-ups and another one mile run. The workout will take place at Body By Boris on Monday, May 25, at 9 a.m.
There is a suggested donation of $25 at the door or online. Memorial Day Murph T-shirts will be provided to those that participate. Visit bodybyboris.com/murph for more information or to register.
