#800EveryDay | Special Olympics OR

$6,800 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 105 people in 6 months
My name is Chris Duffin and I am the Co-Founder of Kabuki Strength.  This is the #800everyday fundraiser for Special Olympics Oregon.

Kabuki Strength is an organization deeply devoted to optimizing human ability + performance via original equipment, research-based education, and world-class coaching. 

Our mission and vision is to help make the world a better place through strength. We deeply believe that the pursuit of strength - physical, mental, and emotional - is a virtuous and rewarding endeavor to all who undertake it.  

Cassandra La Madrid, one of our coaches here at Kabuki Strength, volunteers as a powerlifting coach for Special Olympics Oregon and with her leadership, we want to do our part to help this incredible group of athletes and the SO organization.

This fundraising campaign and feat of strength is an effort to raise money and awareness for the Special Olympics organization in Oregon, with the end goal of eventually hosting a Special Olympics Powerlifting Fundraising Meet here at Kabuki Strength Lab later this year.

I will be squatting at least 800 pounds every day for 30 days, taking a single rest day every week. 

Please share this page with your friends, share each of the #800everyday videos, and donate to this awesome cause.

Thank you,

Chris Duffin and Kabuki Strength

Thanks to all of you, we have raised $6,600 dollars for the Special Olympics in Oregon, during a time when they desperately need funding to continue their incredible work with incredible athletes.

We are proud to announce that later this year, Kabuki Strength in partnership with Special Olympics Oregon will be hosting a special charity powerlifting event to benefit the Special Olympics in Oregon. This will be a sanctioned Powerlifting meet where around 60 lifters, of which half are Special Olympics athletes, will take the platform side-by-side and compete in the squat, bench press, and deadlift to raise money for this incredible organization.

More information on this to follow as we work out the details, however we thought we would let those of you who supported this campaign know first. We are absolutely thrilled for this upcoming event, and can't wait to share all the details with you and everyone else!

Thank you again for your support! And a special thanks to Cassandra La Madrid, a coach for the Special Olympics and the person who came forward to us with this incredible idea.

If you would like to help or reach out to us for any ideas, suggestions, comments, or questions - please don't hesitate to email both "andrei@kabukistrength.com" and "cassandra@kabukistrength.com".
