I am lucky to be able to give back to the community through my event photography and even luckier to know people who put on awesome events to raise funds for great causes like the fight against cancer. The community really came together for this event to participate, volunteer and have fun. Be sure to read all the way to the end to watch the Strong-boys and Strong-girls as they lead the race to becoming the next generation of Strongmen and Strongwomen competitors.
Pulln’ 4You raises funds that help support different Cancer organizations by putting on Strongman events, learn more by following the Pullin’ 4You IG account.
The day started out with a Deadlift that went up as high as 650 pounds. It was so fun watching everyone step up to see how much they could lift. For me personally, I was super stoked to see a woman lift much heavier than a lot of the men! WOOT WOOT!!! Not to mention a bad ass leading a volunteer group of recruits. Happy (early) Vetern’s day to each of them.
Check out the 650 pound deadlift event in the video and see who the winner was!
Special shout out to the women who inspired me to do more than just lift a 32 ounce cup of coffee on the daily, and maybe lift a weight or two, again. And in case you are wondering how hard can it be…. watch the next video to see Megan as she
That’s what I said. I’ve seen it on tv before but never in person and I was just about ready to try too…. but I left it to the real athletes instead.
Man, it was too cool. The crown was cheering and going wild… especially when Megan got strapped in. She is a pretty petite athlete – but don’t let her size fool you – she is STRONG!! Check her out.
…. and after her how could the rest of the Strongmen not pull too!
The day wrapped up with a team effort of all the kid spectators becoming athletes. Yeah!!!! With little athletes like this, who weren’t afraid to try the future is looking bright!
I wish each and everyone of the littles out at all sporting events to believe in themselves and know that the only way to ensure failure is to give up before they attempt it.
