Nationwide WOD for Warriors event honors veterans

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

WOD for Warriors -- a nationwide effort to connect veterans with their communities and celebrate Memorial Day in a meaningful way -- is under way in Montgomery.

WOD stands for "Workout of the Day" and fitness clubs are a major part of the effort.

All of this involves Team Red White and Blue. A nationwide non-profit with the goal of enhancing veterans' lives through physical and social activities. This WOD for Warriors effort is taking place around the country over the entire Memorial Day weekend.

Thursday night there was a fundraiser at Iron Tribe Fitness. This has become an annual effort around the country both on Memorial Day and Veterans Day. More than 200 gyms around the world participate.

The Montgomery location of Iron Tribe has raised more than $3,000 for Team Red White and Blue, and the event keeps getting bigger and bigger.

The Montgomery location of CrossFit 2L2Q is also hosting an event on Monday. Zoe's Kitchen is also involved. Check-in begins at 9:30 a.m.

For questions or more information, please contact me at (920) 246-1418 or jill.glasenapp@teamrwb.org or CrossFit 2L2Q Owner Travis Hardy.
