STATE COLLEGE, PA—In March seven Marines and four crewmembers were killed after an Army helicopter crashed during a training exercise off the Florida Panhandle. Midshipmen of Penn State NROTC participated in fundraising work out-of-the-day, or WOD, on 4 April hosted by Crossfit Nittany in State College, PA. Known as a “Hero WOD”, the event consisted of running, olympic lifting, burpees, and rope climbing within a 31 minute period. The event helped raise funds to support the families of the fallen Marine special operators.
