VANCOUVER, Wash. (KOIN 6) — Members of the community served by Vancouver Police officer Dustin Gouschaal – shot seven times by white supremacist James Sapp one month ago – are coming together to help him heal.

CrossFit Camas, a specialized fitness gym in Vancouver, is helping Goudschaal’s recovery through a fitness competition.

Vancouver Police said Goudschaal is grateful for the community’s support and he is making progress in his at-home recovery.

“I really hope this says to that officer as well as all the officers that serve that as a community we’re grateful for what they do for us,” said tournament organizer Lori Boyd.

“I’m grateful that he’s recovering and this is just a small part of what we can do for him and his family,” said retired Gresham Police officer Richard Boyd.

All proceeds from the event, held at 10 a.m. August 9 at CrossFit Camas will go directly to Goudschaal.
