3 Wise Men Tribute WOD and Fundraiser

  • crossfit tides 622 Langley Avenue Saint Joseph, MI, 49085 United States (map)

More than 200 CrossFit gyms across the country raise money for the Three Wise Men Foundation, which was started in honor of Beau, Ben and Jeremy Wise – three Arkansas brothers who served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Jeremy Wise, a U.S. Navy SEAL, was killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan on Dec. 30, 2009. Ben Wise, a Green Beret in the U.S. Army, died in January 2012 after he was wounded in a firefight in Afghanistan. Beau Wise is still active in the U.S. Marine Corps.

In 2016 our CFT Athletes dedicated themselves to a workout- a workout that will test them mentally, emotionally and physically- in an effort to raise awareness and tackle the stigma towards veterans' mental health. They also landed us third in the nation out of over 200 CrossFit affiliates in fundraising. Lets get to #1 this year!!
