CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A downtown crossfit gym is joining a national effort on Memorial Day to pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Crossfit Discovery Downtown will take part in the annual Remember the Heroes. The event will take place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the gym located at 80 1/2 Society Street.

Every hour, Crossfit athletes will dedicate workouts to soldiers who have died in Afghanistan or Iraq. Exercises include running, weightlifting, and strength and endurance activities.

Each workout will bear the name of a fallen soldier whose picture will be projected on a wall.

Several hundred athletes at Crossfit gyms across the United States are expected to participate in Remember the Heroes.
