Join us for 3rd Annual Maura Murray Workout (WOD) and Acts of Kindness Challenge on May 4 - Maura's 41st Birthday
To honor and remember Maura on her 41st birthday, our family, her friends, and supporters across the country are virtually participating in the third annual Maura Murray WOD (workout of the day) on May 4, 2023. It's the perfect way to remember Maura - breaking a sweat!
This year we’re adding an “Acts of Kindness” challenge. We encourage you to positively impact another person on Maura’s birthday! It can be as simple as holding a door or helping a neighbor. It captures the essence of Maura’s spirit, as she always went out of her way to help others. Consider it like kind messages sent courtesy of Maura on this day.
From an early age, Maura and I competed alongside each other in athletics, creating an everlasting bond. On May 4, 2023 Maura would celebrate her 41st birthday and if she were here, I know she would start the day off with a workout and undoubtedly do something kind.
The WOD (aka, workout) consists of two events with special significance to Maura; a 2 mile run and 82 burpees. Maura’s best race was the 2 mile run and Maura’s birth year  will be the number of burpees guaranteed to make you sweat.
Supporters can join us by ordering an exclusive Maura WOD t-shirt to wear during the workout (at cost). You'll break a sweat, honor Maura, and walk away with a Maura WOD t-shirt! Share photos and videos on May 4th via social media and use the hashtag #MauraWOD, #mauramurray, #engagewithempathy to inspire others as we honor and remember my little sister Maura.
I look forward to seeing everyone [virtually] on May 4 and as always, thank you for your love and support - Maura would be amazed.
Background: A WOD is an official functional movement workout performed on a given day. Maura’s older sister and former teammate, Julie Murray, designed the Maura WOD based on a workout she wishes they could do together on Maura's birthday [May 4]. The workout is for everyone, and the 2 mile run and 82 burpees can be scaled to a 1-2 mile walk and 82 alternating step-ups depending on your fitness level.
‘Acts of Kindness’ Challenge: Inspired by Robert Lynch’s “Maura Murray - Strength in Numbers” Facebook group community. Special thanks to Tammy from the “Maura’s Room” group for the graphic.
