BENEFITING: Rebuilding Together Alexandria
EVENT DATE: Oct 28, 2013
As many of you are aware, I’ve been blessed to be involved with Rebuilding Together Alexandria for the past several years. RTA provides home improvements for low income homeowners within the City of Alexandria in addition to various other services provided to the less fortunate in our community. Please feel free to visit the website at www.rebuildingtogetheralex.org to learn more about the organization and what we are about!
In an effort to raise funds for the organization, I’m going to be competing in the Virginia State Powerlifting Championships on October 26th in Lexington Virginia and I’m asking friends and family to donate per pound that I lift!
For those that don’t know about powerlifting, the competition includes 3 attempts for maximum weight of powerlifting’s 3 core lifts; the bench press, squat and deadlift. I’ve been training since late spring and hopefully will be up to the challenge!
To help everyone estimate how much their donation would be, my goal for this meet will be to total 1200 pounds, which means if you donate a penny per pound, you would be donating 12 dollars if I hit my goal!
Thanks and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or want to get involved with this great charity!
