StrengthBox Challenge for Cops & Kids
The StrengthBox Challenge is a friendly strength competition and fundraiser benefiting ProAction Cops & Kids
On the last Saturday of August, StrengthBox will host a lifting and bodyweight strength competition, open to all. Your participation or support will help guide kids towards a better future, as all proceeds will benefit skill-building and mentoring programs between police and at-risk youth through ProAction Cops & Kids.
This event promises to be great fun with prizes, community and plenty of friendly competition.
It doesn’t matter whether you place in the top 3 — what matters is your support. ANYONE can watch, donate or participate.
Here are the details:
Saturday, August 25th at 10:00am
StrengthBox – 5-45 Cranfield Road, East York, Toronto
Registration at the door starting at 9:30am
Suggested donation: $20 or more. Cash or cheque made out to ProAction Cops & Kids.
Deadlift 1 Rep-Max
Tire Flips (360 pounds) x 30 seconds
Max Strict Pushups & Max Pullups (no rest, cumulative total)
Men’s Masters (45+)
Women’s Masters (45+)
The more people who show up, the more we will raise! Past events raised over $1000 each, and this year we’re excited to sponsor a new charity: ProAction Cops & Kids.
All proceeds will benefit programs between police and youth. Establishing a positive relationship between cops and kids strengthens our community today and for the future.
Some extra info for those competing:
There are no weight classes. Some events (deadlift and tire flip) may favour larger participants, the bodyweight challenge (pushups and pullups) will favour lighter participants. In the event of a tie in an individual category, weight can be used as a tie-breaker (deadlift and tire flip goes to the lighter person, and the bodyweight challenge goes to the heavier person).
A person’s total score will be based on average performance among all three events.
