This past Memorial Day your Friendswood Volunteer Fire Department honored those warriors gone before us by participating in the 2021 Murph Challenge https://themurphchallenge.com
What comprises the Murph Challenge: 1-mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats, 1-mile run (20 lb. vest optional)
This event saw your firefighters (to include military veterans), EMS personnel, FVFD family members, and Marines traveling from Michigan, New York, South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia join in to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in order to preserve the freedoms that we enjoy today. The Murph Challenge is an annual fundraiser for the Lt. Michael P. Murphy Scholarship Foundation and honors the Navy SEAL and Medal of Honor Recipient.
Members of your Friendswood Volunteer Fire Department participate in many challenging fundraiser events as a way to honor others as well as challenge and improve their physical conditioning.
