Have you heard of CrossFit or other fitness competitions? We are getting into the craze that is taking over the fitness world—and we’re going to show everyone that our Veterans can set the bar far higher!
The Cascade Cup is your time to show how fit and functional your body is. Each workout of the day (WOD) will test your endurance, stamina, strength, power, speed, and flexibility while performing adapted fitness movements. The workouts will be tailored to everyone’s success—you can do this!
Veterans will need to compete in a semi-final and final WOD at the 40th National Veterans Wheelchair Games for a chance to take home The Cascade Cup. More importantly, bragging rights are on the line!

- Group 1: Class 1B & 1C
- Group 2: Class 2 & 3
- Group 3: Class 4 & 5
How to Train
Preliminary WODs will be released online starting June 1. A workout video will be provided for each WOD at the Wheelchair Games, so all participants can learn the points of performance. Everything can be done in your home community.
