Today the 8th Annual MALTZ CHALLENGE will be held by DEA Offices around the world to honor the Marines, soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Coast Guard personnel who made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our freedom. CrossFit King of Prussia is honored to be hosting this special event for the 5th year running. 

The Maltz Challenge is named after Air Force Master Sergeant Michael Maltz, brother of SOD Special Agent in Charge Derek Maltz. MSgt Maltz was a para-rescue jumper who was killed in action, along with five colleagues, during a medical evacuation of sick Afghani children in March 2003.  Since 2007, DEA has paid tribute to fallen heroes from all branches of the military through the Maltz Challenge.
