The event is put together to raise money for an organization called Hope Kids. As a member of Team Hope, I had to commit to raise at least $500 for the family of a child with a life threatening illness.

The money I raise will go directly to the family. On Jan 20th I will get to meet my family (the 19 other lifters will meet thier families). I am so honored to do this. You may or may not know this, but my now 16 year old daughter fought cancer when she was 3 years old. We needed and were lucky enough to get financial support from friends, family, and strangers. Since that time in my life I have always tried to help others in the same position.

Please help me reach my goal -- I was asked to raise $500, I want to raise $3000. You can click on this and go to my page -- every single dollar counts. Please consider helping. When I meet my family in January, I will update this post and tell you all about them.

Thanks MAB family.

Our Relentless kick off event is this Sunday. This is where the lifters get to meet our Hope Kids teamates, we get to meet our Kids and their families. There will be a hand full of lifters doing some lifts for the kids, I hear Luyando is going to do an 1100 bench off a 2 board.....

I'm creeping toward my goal -- I'm at $1635 -- over 1/2 way to my $3000 goal! Please consider a donation to this great cause.

They are looking for volunteers to pull this meet off -- if anyone is within driving distance and wants to help, here's the link: HopeKids: Relentless 2013

I'm $975 away from my goal -- still looking for support if anyone wants to help out!!

This is probably the best reason to lift on the planet. I have several friends lifting at this event. I wish I could donate to all.

Judges are covered. We need lots of platform help. Loaders and spotters. There is also plenty 'light' work too with concessions, admissions, warm up room help, etc.

90 liters in one day. It'll be epic, but will take an epic amount of help to pull it off. Clock will be strictly enforced.

It really comes down to the loaders. They are what set the pace of the meet. If the bar loads are not quick and accurate it slows everything down.

Good luck with it. I'm sure it will run late, like most meets, but well worth it.

I'm hoping to make it down to support my peeps!

Great cause and great lifters and the amazing thing is the display of strength shown by those kids.
