On October 1, 2016 from 8:30 until 11:30, The Main Line CrossFit-Ardmore and The Main Line CrossFit-Wayne (Locations at our website: www.crossfitmainline.com/contact-us/) will be a sponsoring location for the the Third Annual EOD 131 Memorial Workout to benefit the EOD Warrior Foundation (EODWF). The workout is in honor of the 131 EOD Technicians in the Navy, Army, Marine Corps and Air Force who have made the ultimate sacrifice since 9/11. This year Marine SSGT David B. Lyons is added to the list of 130 which now brings the total to 131. SSGT Lyons died of wounds received in action while deployed in 2010 to Afghanistan in Support of Operation Enduring Freedom. The workout is therefore renamed the EOD 131 Memorial Workout in his memory. In anticipation of this event, please consider joining our team by making a donation.
