WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - There’s a CrossFit challenge this weekend to raise money to help active-duty military.

Johnnie Flynn, owner of BBJ Bootcamp and Fitness Center, and her son, Kyle Flynn told us about the second annual BBJ Murph Challenge.

The challenge is named for Lt. Michael Murphy, a Navy SEAL who was killed in action in Afghanistan.
