Tomorrow, Morgan Junction Crossfit is hosting the 4th Annual Pipehitters Classic – a Crossfit-training competition with men and women from all around the region – from 8 am to 5 pm at Madison Middle School (3429 45th Ave SW). Participants compete in a variety of strength events, like weightlifting and dragging tires. (See here for a preview video.)
According to the event’s Facebook page, , proceeds from registration fees will benefit a fund for the family of Seattle Police Officer Tim Brenton, the West Seattle High School graduate murdered in 2009. It’s free to watch Saturday’s event; there will be a collection jar for spectators who wish to donate.
Morgan Junction Crossfit says it’s made donations in memory of Officer Brenton in the past, but this will be the first year that all proceeds from the Pipehitters Classic will go to the fund benefiting his children. Other local Crossfit gyms have also honored Officer Brenton since his death.
