B3 Gym is hosting a workout and BBQ on Memorial Day to honor fallen military members while raising funds for the Jonathan Cote Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship aids veterans at Santa Fe College and The University of Florida in paying for semester tuition and books. The scholarship was started by Chris “Boris” Marhefka, owner of B3, in honor of his friend, Jonathan Cote, who was killed in action overseas in 2006.
The workout B3 is hosting on Memorial Day is called the Murph. The workout was a favorite of fallen LT. Michael P. Murphy, which is where the name Murph comes from. Murphy was a Navy Seal who received the Medal of Honor in 2007 after he fatally led his team on a mission to capture a key Taliban leader in 2005.
The Murph consists of a one mile run, 300 squats, 200 push-ups, 100 pull-ups and another one mile run.
