Thousand Lakes Fitness is proud to announce its 5th annual event, dedicated to supporting 31 Heroes, an organization that holds a special place in our hearts. As a family directly impacted by the noble mission of 31 Heroes, we invite you to join us in remembering the brave souls lost in the events of Extortion 17 and to contribute to raising crucial funds for this cause.

This year, we are honoring the memory of Nicholas P. Spehar, a distinguished Navy SEAL who exemplified courage, dedication, and selflessness. Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on October 19th, 1986, Nicholas grew up in Chisago City, Minnesota, and joined the Navy in March 2007. His journey was marked by extraordinary achievements, including graduating from the prestigious Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/s) Training and SEAL Qualification Training with Class 267.

Nicholas served with distinction, deploying to the Philippines and Yemen in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. He earned the coveted titles of Honor Man in both Naval Special Warfare Lead Breacher and Naval Special Warfare Sniper School. Known for his leadership, tireless work ethic, and elite warrior skills, Nicholas volunteered for deployment to Afghanistan upon his return from Yemen. Tragically, on August 6, 2011, he was killed in action during combat operations in Wardak Province, Afghanistan.

Nicholas’s legacy is one of honor, integrity, and unwavering devotion to his family, faith, and country. He was awarded the Army Achievement Medal and the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal, recognizing his exceptional service and commitment.

By participating in this event, you are not only remembering a true American hero but also contributing to a cause that provides vital support to the families of fallen warriors. Your donations will directly impact the lives of those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.

Join us in this heartfelt tribute and help us reach our goal of making a significant difference. Together, we can honor the memory of Nicholas P. Spehar and support the mission of 31 Heroes. Your generosity and participation are deeply appreciated.
