Bend's own Ashton Eaton will go for the gold in the men's decathlon Thursday.

 

To celebrate and rally for Ashton, the Tower Theatre will live stream some of the events, beginning with the javelin throw at 10:30 in the morning.

 

Tower Theatre spokesman Ray Solley spoke with Ashton's mom, Roz.  “She told Ashton what we were doing, and she told us that he said 'oh that is so cool.'  So the whole family is aware that all of Bend will be rallying behind him live at the Tower on Thursday morning."

 

Solley says the doors will open at 9:30 and the event is free.  They encourage you to wear your Mountain View colors; because he graduated as a Cougar or your “Duck” yellow and green.

 

They will also show Ashton's events from the previous day.  Doors will open at 9:30 a.m.

 

Help Puerto Rico

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
