This Saturday January 25th CrossFit Trenches in Lake St. Louis will be hosting a fund raising event for Kevin Ogar. This is Kevin’s story.
As coach at CrossFit Unbroken in Englewood, CO and an accomplished elite level athlete himself, Kevin Ogar’s focus each and every day is to help make people better. His kind-hearted personality and genuine care for an athlete’s well being is what makes Kevin shine and those around him are drawn to his warmth and caring attitude.
As an athlete Kevin is no stranger to pushing himself to his greatest abilities. He is so comfortable in the uncomfortable and his ability to handle pain is far beyond that of a normal human being. A Superman in his own right. Kevin excelled in CrossFit the most, being one of the best in the sport. This is his legacy. CrossFit is a part of him and will stay that way forever. He will continue to affect people positively through CrossFit and through his triumph over this tragic event.
What happened to Kevin Ogar?
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.
How you can partner with Kevin?
Show up this Saturday to CrossFit Trenches at the regular 9am hour. We will collect donations for Kevin; you can donate online via the computers at Trenches, or you can donate via check or cash, which Trenches will then send to Kevin in CO. After collecting a donation, in Kevin’s honor we will be doing the “Ogar” WOD.
14 Minute AMRAP
3 Snatches 135/95
1 Muscle Up
12 Wallballs 20/14 10/9 Target
If you are new to CrossFit, or have not ever done it before we would still love to have you come out and give a scaled version of the WOD a shot in support of Kevin. If you have any questions please email Justing73@gmail.com
Let’s support an amazing athlete, and all around great person.
