May 2024: In Bloom at Marines' Memorial

April showers brought out the May flowers in San Francisco! Union Square is filled with color, and the first hints of sunshine are peeking through the clouds. The Fitness Center is now ready for use! Our new equipment is ready for our members and guests! Ambassador Nathaniel Fick and CrossFit CEO Don Faul will be here this month. Additionally, the 249th Birthday Ball Celebration tickets are available! You can get these tickets by clicking the links below.


As we approach Memorial Day, we'd like to remind you that the Marines' Memorial Association exists to remember "those who came before us."  As we honor the servicemembers who made the ultimate sacrifice, we invite you to spend a moment of quiet contemplation at our Memorial Tribute Wall on 10M. 


We'll see you on Sutter!
