Crossfit Triton of Wallingford will be hosting a “Summer Throwdown” event to benefit the Special Olympics. The competition, taking place on Saturday, June 2 at 9:00 am, will include fitness and weightlifting events based on the
increasingly popular Crossfit style of strength and conditioning. Additionally, the event will feature a raffle for dozens of exciting prizes generously donated

That’s why we are proud to support an organization that promotes community, confidence and camaraderie through the power of sports. We are extremely grateful to all the local businesses who are helping us to support this wonderful cause.”
