The Testament Games will be supporting The PANDAS project, Special Olympics Arkansas, and the Benton Athletic Department.
For the second year in a row, CrossFit Testament is proud to partner with and host the Special Olympics on April 1, 2017 for their Power Lifting competition. In Special Olympics, Powerlifting is much more than a deadlift, squat or bench press. It is effort, persistence and loyalty, with training, determination and attitude being the key factors for athletes. It highlights the athlete’s inner wish to improve, to “not to make compromises”. http://www.specialolympicsarkansas.org/
PANDAS /PANS (Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome) is a not-well-known condition that dramatically affected our community on December 24, 2016 through the tragic loss of Max Wallace. It can occur is when an infectious trigger, environmental factors, and other possible triggers create a misdirected immune response and results in inflammation on a child’s brain. In turn, the child quickly begins to exhibit life-changing symptoms such as OCD, severe restrictive eating, anxiety, tics, personality changes, decline in math and handwriting abilities, sensory sensitivities, and more. A subset of PANS. PANDAS is specifically when strep is connected to the sudden onset of OCD and/or tics along with other listed clinical symptoms. Testament Games will donate to the Saline Memorial Health Foundation to specifically help families who are affected by this sudden and inexplicable illness.
