Kevin Ogar


This past weekend at the OC Throwdown, Kevin Ogar suffered a separated T11/12 and has severed his spinal cord. At this time he has no voluntary movement below his waist. Kevin is uninsured and needs our help. Click HERE to donate.

This weekend at CFNE we will be doing a workout for Kevin and will be collecting money to donate. Also, at the Kill Cliff ECC there will be donation jars at every tent with 100% of the proceeds going to Kevin.



  1. Awesome that we can support Kevin via CFNE…thank you for giving us this opportunity to do so!

  2. I have decided to donate all of the money received this weekend at my Injury Prevention Seminar to Kevin Ogar, please come to learn and to help.

  28. There are certainly a number of details like that to take into consideration. That may be a nice level to carry up. I offer the ideas above as basic inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you deliver up the place the most important factor can be working in trustworthy good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged round things like that, however I am certain that your job is clearly identified as a good game. Both girls and boys feel the influence of just a moment�s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.

  29. I like the valuable information you provide in your articles.
    I will bookmark your weblog and check again here frequently.
    I’m quite certain I will learn a lot of new stuff right here!
    Best of luck for the next!

  30. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and
    wished to say that I have truly enjoyed surfing around your blog posts.
