Lift Up! Fundraiser is January 20th

Event rescheduled for Saturday, January 20 due to weather! Don’t miss it!

Join Green Mountain CrossFit and Green Mountain United Way for a day of weightlifting to raise funds for Green Mountain United Way on Saturday, January 20. Fifty percent of all proceeds go straight to Green Mountain United Way to support the fantastic work they do in and around our local community. Come try for a new personal record and support a great cause. Green Mountain United Way supports communities in Caledonia, Essex, Orange, Orleans, and Washington Counties through work in the areas of health, education and financial stability.

“Green Mountain CrossFit is clearly committed to a healthy community, both through their work to help people become fit, but also in their dedication to supporting Green Mountain United Way’s work in our region” says Tawnya Kristen, Executive Director of Green Mountain United Way. “This event provides the opportunity to share the load in lifting up the health, education and financial stability of all in our communities through the joy of lifting your personal best!” Tawnya Kristen is also a participant in the Lift Up! Benefit.

Format will be a single registration at $50. Registration allows you to establish a one rep max in any or all of six lifts: Shoulder Press, Bench Press, Back Squat, Deadlift, Snatch, and Clean & Jerk. This is a non-sanctioned, family-friendly lifting event and is open to all ages and abilities. During last year’s event many personal bests were reached, and we expect more of the same this year with support from an enthusiastic crowd of lifters, CrossFit athletes, and the local community. Lifting is not required to attend, and we encourage the general public to show up and cheer on regular folks from the local community doing extraordinary lifts for a great cause.
