$25 Suggested Donation
This event will benefit Kevin Ogar, as 100% of the funds raised will be donated directly to KevinOgar.com.
“On January 12th, 2014 Kevin Ogar’s life changed forever. He suffered a traumatic injury to his spinal cord as a result of a “freak accident” while competing at an event in Orange County, California. At this time, Kevin has no movement below the waist and will be faced with numerous surgeries and a long road ahead for rehabilitation.
OGAR Strong is the collaborative effort of a powerful community of people linking arms to support one of our own, Kevin Ogar. It’s true that there’s a strength in numbers and together we can rally to embrace Kevin and his family as they embark on this challenging life-changing journey.”
Athletes are encouraged to donate at least the regular Classics amount of $25, but any amount is welcome. Donations by non-participants are also welcome. We are hoping to pre-order Ogar Strong shirts to be on sale at the event, so please submit your shirt size if you are planning to purchase a shirt onsite, so we have a good estimate.
This event will be different from past Classics events. The workout will be unknown until 23 hours before. We will need help from Online Course Certified Judges to ensure valid Open scores. Please register to Judge in the option on this page.
We will also probably need more “specialized” equipment than what we have on hand. (Extra 20lb med balls for example, if the WOD calls for it.) If you are willing to share equipment, please email email@example.com to let us know so we can get you on standby once the WOD is released.
Scaling will be allowed and we will attempt to accomidate as many athletes as possible in order to fundraise as much as possible for Kevin. If an athlete knows that they will most likely be scaling the Open workouts, they can sign up for scaled now, or RX with the option to scale once the workout is released.
