The Story:

-On August 6, 2011, America lost 30 soldiers and 1 military K9 when a CH-47 Chinook helicopter was downed in Afghanistan.
-In the wake of tragedy, some minds came together to raise funds for the fallen heroes.
-430 gyms and more than 10,000 participants across the world came together to raise more than $300,000 for the 30 victim’s families.
-The incredible success of this event led to the creation of the 31Heroes Project, a non-profit assisting athletes and event organizers across the world with tools and resources.
-Their mission statement reads as follows:
“Established to honor the 31 Americans killed in action on August 6, 2011, The
31Heroes Project serves to impact the lives of our nation’s heroes and their
families, while remembering the fallen, through athletic endeavors and competitive fundraising events.”
