The Never Forgotten Games return to Redding for their third Cross Fit competition. The chairman of the Never Forgotten Games, Darren Hull, made sure the event went on this year after canceling last year due to COVID-19.
The event honors the lives of five first responders from Northern California who lost their lives in the line of duty. Each of their names and pictures hang on banners above the competition. One of their family members said that they felt the support shown at the event was a form of therapy in itself.
"He thanks me afterward. He says you know, I’ve had some friends tell me that I should probably talk to somebody about this, but I haven’t," said Hull.
So thanks for my first therapy session," Hull continued. "I mean that in and of itself makes it all worth it."
Over 50 teams entered the Redding Civic Auditorium to compete in the events.
