Orchid Island Crossfit and the Veterans Council of Indian River County announces the 1st Annual Hump for our Vet’s Fundraiser

VERO BEACH, FLOrchid Island Crossfit is pleased to announce the 1st Annual Hump for our Vet’s event to benefit the Veterans Council of Indian River County.  Participants in this event will experience a small part of what it means to be a member of our nation’s Armed Services.  They will load up a backpack/rucksack with weight and form a team that “humps” from a starting point at Orchid Island Crossfit to Veteran’s Island Memorial at Riverside Park.  In addition to the weight each participant will carry, there will be team weights to simulate the extra equipment our soldiers must carry to successfully complete their mission.   The participants will then return to the starting point and be hosted at a BBQ, provided by Orchid Island Crossfit.  The event is open to people of all fitness levels as long as you are physically able to walk a total of 9 miles.

The event will take place on January 23, 2016 at 9:00 a.m.  To participate, a donation of $25 (individual) or $40 (family) is requested.  All proceeds from this event will be presented to the Veteran’s Council of Indian River County at a presentation ceremony at the end of the event.

You can register for this event by contacting the Hump for our Vet’s organizer, Bruce Cady at 772-559-7774 or bruce.cady@gmail.com.
