What is a Lift-Off for Shriners Kids?
A Lift-Off is a “push-pull” exhibition, not a competition. The Lift-Off is going to give area powerlifters an opportunity to gather for a day of fellowship, weightlifting and fun; all for a great cause! The exhibition part of the day will include the following lifts: bench press, dead lift and power curl. The Lift-Off is open to powerlifters of all ages, sizes and strength capabilities. It will also include demonstrations by Nationally Recognized Powerlifters.
How does the Fundraising part work?
The lifters will pay an entry fee to participate in the Lift-Off. They will also bring with them monetary contributions/pledges from their family, friends, co-workers and fellow Shriner’s. The pledges can be calculated at a per pound lifted rate or a predetermined lump sum donation. All of the funds donated and pledged will go to the Shriners Hospital in Philadelphia. This year’s event is solely dedicated to the Carestream DRX-Evolution X-Ray System.
Why was Shriners Hospital for Children selected to be the beneficiary of this event?
