Games 2012 Regional Workouts have arrived! Check it out…the bar has been raised.

Hey Crossfit Portland, in some philanthropic efforts, I’m looking to help raise some money. It’s a Dodge Ball tournament fundraiser for Special Olympics on May 19th.

I have had a few past posts for other Special Olympic fundraising events, like the Polar Plunge and the Law Enforcement Torch Run.

This year I’m looking for a few CFPDX athletes that might want to join my team (named ORS 163.175, or Assault II), or I’d invite you start your own team. If you’d like to join my team, please email me at

If you’d like to start your own team, please read through the announcement below. Each team pays $250 to register, and all proceeds go to Oregon Special Olympics. Teams must consist of a minimum of six players with a maximum of ten.

Lastly, if you’d simply like to donate on my team’s behalf, remember team name ORS 163.175, it’d be greatly appreciated. The Portland Police Bureau, the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, the Troutdale Police Department, and of course my own Fairview Police Department are sponsoring this event.

    Hey Crossfitportland,
    Neat Post, A number of years back, Grant was a student in our special needs classroom. He had Downs Syndrome, and although he was a high school junior, he was learning at the level of a student in 2nd or 3rd grade. He had a lot of interests, however, and one of them was participating in Special Olympics. Despite his enthusiasm, we were surprised to learn that during the summer following his junior year, he participated in the international paralympic games where he took home a first place. That fall, he came back to school sporting his medal, a huge smile, and a special little swagger. His success had propelled him to a whole different level where he had self-confidence and his peers elected him Homecoming King.
