The 31Heroes Project was conceived in response to the Extortion 17 helicopter crash in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011 killing 30 military service members, as well as one military working dog – Many of the fallen were Special Operators from the Navy SEAL community.
Established to honor the 31 Americans on Extortion 17 that were killed in action in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011, The 31Heroes Project exists to support the families of all fallen military heroes, as well as active duty families.
Today, we assist athletes and event organizers who want to make a difference in the lives of our nation’s warriors and their families. Our tools and dedicated resources help to promote amateur athletes’ events and races, raise funds online, organize teammates, and even track donations.
Funds raised from The 31 Heroes Project supported events are dispersed among partnering organizations that have the capacity to support our nation’s heroes and their families, as well as honor the fallen.
We continually seek to partner with organizations that are committed to making a difference in the lives of military families. Since 2011, we have been able to disperse $1.5 Million to the following recipients:
•Extortion 17 Families
•Navy Seal Foundation
•Travis Manion Foundation
On August 2nd at 0700 & 0900, CrossFit Petoskey will host the 31Heroes WOD and raise money for this great cause. Please feel free to donate, stop by, or join us for a memorable event.
