The Canadian Mental Health Association, Windsor-Essex County Branch and Windsor CrossFit announced today the “First Responders vs. Windsor CrossFit” challenge in support of Mental Health Month and to ignite some friendly competition for the upcoming Can-Am Police-Fire Games.

The event will feature 4-member teams from Windsor CrossFit, CMHA-WECB, Windsor Police, Windsor Fire and Essex-Windsor EMS participating in five different events on Saturday, May 7th at Windsor CrossFit (1106 Laramie – at the corner of First and Laramie) from 9:30am to 12:30pm

Events include:

  • “Engine” – 7-minute AMRAP burpees
  • “Hang in There” – the team that hangs from a pull-up bar the longest, wins!
  • “The Long Haul” – teams have 15 minutes to pull the heaviest possible sled across a 75’ distance
  • “Race Pace” -the first team to reach 240 calories on the Concept 2 Rower, wins!
  • “Scrambled or Hard Boiled?” – the team that makes it through the obstacle course successfully in the shortest amount of time, wins! Each teammate must carry an egg on a spoon throughout.

Points will be awarded with a 20-point spread from 1st to 5th place. As an added bonus, teams will be given 10 points for every $100 raised for the event. Donations to each team can be made at

In 2019 CMHA-WECB was delighted to be selected as the official charity partner of the Can-Am Police-Fire Games. Recognizing the high levels of stress that accompany those that work on the front lines, CMHA-WECB formed a coalition with area first responder agencies, and have been working over these last 3 years to provide additional training, education and support specific to first responders and their families. “We Help First” now has a dedicated website and social media channels providing access to news, events and trainings.
