Kevin Ogar 14.5 Fundraiser and BBQ

Many of you heard about the tragic and freak accident fellow Colorado CrossFitter Kevin Ogar was in on the weekend of January 14th.

On January 12th, 2014 Kevin Ogar 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.

On Friday, March 28th, Roots will host 14.5 on its usual Friday Night Throwdown Series, but in a fundraising effort for Kevin.

You’ll sign-up for heats and do the workout as you normally would.  There will be opportunities to donate to the Kevin Ogar Fund and to win great raffle prizes from lululemon, Reebok, and Progenex.  CrossFit Roots will match donations up to $1500.  After the workout, we’ll fire up the grill and serve up burgers from Yampa Valley Beef.

All area CrossFitters are welcome to attend so bring your local CrossFitting friends!
