Navy SEAL Lt. Michael Murphy, whose bravery in combat (posthumously) earned him the Medal of Honor, is being remembered through a fitness challenge at the Eastern Connecticut State University (ECSU).
Several people are slated to take on the fitness challenge, which consists of the workout of Lt. Murphy, during the Veterans’ Day Challenge on November 11. The workout includes the following exercises: one-mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 air squats and another one-mile run.
In order to make it a little bit more challenging, some of the participants will also put on 10- or 20-lb weight vests.
Funds raised from the challenge will be used in support of scholarships for service members, Veterans, and their dependents, who attend ECSU.
