HopeKids is a non profit organization that provides community and family support to  families that are dealing with childhood disease and life threatening illnesses. This Saturday you can help support HopeKids and test your strength, or just come watch people test theirs at the Battle for the Crown!


This Saturday, you can help support HopeKids but coming to the Battle for the Crown! Battle for the Crown is a push/pull (bench press and deadlift) event at Nitro Fitness in Evansville. Lifting starts at 10AM,  you can come spectate or test your own strength! All ages and fitness levels will be competing.  There will also be a silent auction, a raffle, and all kinds of fun happening all day.  All proceeds from the event will go directly to HopeKids.  It's $25 to lift, $5 to watch. I'll be lifting in the event too! So if you've ever wanted to see a radio DJ be the world's okayest powerlifter I know just the place ha!

But really if you want to enter the push/pull it's a fun, no pressure contest. If you don't want to compete, there's a silent auction, and you get to watch people test their strength, which is pretty entertaining!

This is a charity BENCH and DEADLIFT competition. All proceeds go to Relentless Nashville and HopeKids.
