Grab Charity By the Bells…

…Million Pound Lift.


1, 004,839 pounds were lifted. Go ROC Boxing. Way to represent. Coach Dom does a lot for the community (Coach Kat also had a huge hand in the day’s events). I’m not exactly sure who came up with the idea to raise money for a local children’s hospital (that exists, but a new one is being built) but it was a very, very good idea. I was very impressed by the turn out. Amateur lifters who represented a local rowing club, a martial arts gym, some average joes and us from ROC Boxing were there, sweating, lifting, enjoying each others company and lifting some more. This was my workout for Sunday, and I had to take Monday off, because well, I now am fighting some kind of virus, and I am super sore. Many people lifted, well, a lot. Dana,  fiance, Jeff lifted as well as my husband! I was pretty proud of both of them! To get to the goal, many members and lifters had set there own, whether 10,000 pounds or 20,000, it was awesome. I think everyone achieved their goals. I did not have one, I have no idea how much I did, but hope to find out what my total was. I started off strong, did varied lifts, jerk, long cycle jerk and snatches, but my hands ripped, so I just went to the 10kg and 8kg bells. I was so happy to be a part of such a special day. As of tonight I know that over $800.00 was raised, but I think that the total will rise, especially when internet donations get accounted for. I hope that coach does it again next year, and hopefully we can make it bigger. My amateur photog self took some photos (enjoy) (when I wasn’t lifting myself):
