The 31Heroes Project came about in response to the Chinook helicopter crash that took place on August 6, 2011 killing 30 military service members and one military working dog. Through this event we quickly discovered that many of us in the CrossFit community have a strong desire and will to support those that have given the ultimate sacrifice to our country and its citizens. Men and women of our armed forces are giving their lives constantly, sometimes with minimal recognition for their sacrifice or that of their family’s sacrifice. However, when 31 of our brave were killed in action on August 6th, we could not naively standby. For us, the sacrifice of our 31 heroes was a catalyst, driving us to realize that it is our responsibility as Americans to take care of all surviving families of our fallen military heroes. These men and women have died protecting our freedom and in response we will take care of their loved ones. 31Heroes became “The 31Heroes Project”. If it weren’t for the sacrifice these 31 made, we wouldn’t be here, called to action and on this mission. Our gratitude for the sacrifice of the 31 could not be greater and because of it, we are setting out on this task of showing each American family that has had to sacrifice a loved one that we support them and stand behind them.

The 31 Americans were not the only ones that died as heroes that day. We cannot forget the sacrifice of our Afghan comrades. Seven Afghan commandos and one Afghan interpreter were also killed in action and we cannot look past their sacrifice. They too are heroes and we thank them and honor them and their families.
