Memorial Day CFT: Why? Why bother? Why put yourself through this?

Krav Maga Detroit crew paid tribute to all the fallen warriors this past Sunday by participating in the Marine Corps Combat Fitness Test (CFT) skillfully administered by our own Coach John Carra, a Marine Corps veteran. This annual event takes place on the Memorial Day weekend and is combined with a fundraiser benefiting some of the finest charities supporting our warriors and their families. This year we collected $665 for The Independence Fund, a charity committed to serving the nation's catastrophically wounded veterans. But the impact of this event doesn’t stop here. Moved by the occasion and our efforts, one of KMD’s own stepped up and offered to match every dollar we collect!!! 
Some ask: Why? Why bother? Why put yourself through this? 
For us the answer is simple: Because it’s hard and because we can. 
This is our way to show gratitude to those who gave their lives for the freedom we enjoy. We will always remember. It’s also a way to meet and workout with awesome people who love their country and are willing to do something for their fellow man.  
So many before us gave it all so we could have fun, train together, spend time with our loved ones. The least we can do is live our lives to the fullest. Live lives worth dying for.
