StrengthBox Challenge Results and Photos
I’m proud to say that the recent StrengthBox Challenge for Cops & Kids was a huge success!
Before getting into the actual numbers, a huge thank you to everyone who competed, participated, volunteered and supported. Whether you were there in person, or donated from a distance — it made for a great event. And a special thank you to the officers and staff of Toronto Police Service who came out to support us.
Men’s Open Division:
- Jamie Milbrandt (1st place)
- Yoni Moussadji (2nd place)
- Virgil Strong (3rd place)

Quite a few people competed for the first time in their life, and were surprised at how much they could achieve. Competition helps, but a friendly competition helps even more. Having the support of the community can really push you to reach new heights, and it was evident in the results.
But the REAL results were in our fundraising efforts. To date, we’ve raised approximately $3,000 for ProAction Cops & Kids.
This is truly incredible and shows you what can be done with a bit of community support. Greg will be making a cheque presentation to Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders later this month.
Finally, there are the pictures of the event.
Our resident photographer and StrengthBox trainee Mike Day captured some amazing moments. He’s placed proofs on his website, which are available for purchase (digital files and/or prints) – and he’s generously agreed to donate 100% of the proceeds from photo sales right back to ProAction Cops & Kids. So if you’d like a high-res copy of a photo for social media, or would like a print for display/framing, you can order them from his website and you’ll be contributing to Cops & Kids as well.
