On June 25th, I am participating in a USS Strongman Competition here in Richmond, Virginia at Crossfit Full Circle. It's called Virginia's Strongest Man and Woman. I will be competing in events with names like: log press, keg carry, stones, and truck pull. Yeah, that's right, you heard that right, lil' ol' me. Anyway, I'm asking for your support. To clarify, I'm not asking you to agree with me that it's good for my health, I'm asking for your support. I plan to raise funds for Sportable! Please consider that a donation to Sportable is a big RAH RAH for me to do my best in this Strongman competition.
Sportable is Richmond's adaptive sports organization for individuals with physical and visual disabilities. I started volunteering with Sportable last year. I have watched the SPOKES, wheelchair basketball team go on to become national champs! I trained with an athlete who is blind and was one of her guides in her first 10k race! I've met a 15 year old fast girl who is going to Rio this fall for the Paralympics! I can't wait to get involved with more Sportable sports and to bring awareness of what Sportable has to offer people.
