Lift for Kids' Sake - Summer strength weekend


Strength sports with kids at heart!

On August 11 to the 13, Lift for Kids will celebrate its 5th year as one of the many wonderful contributors to Big Brothers and Sisters in Leeds and Grenville. The event takes place at the annual RibFest in Hardy Park, the most beautiful waterfront event venue in the 1000’s Islands. All the money goes to Big Brothers and Sisters of Leeds and Grenville.

This year we will be hosting three days of strength events. We kick things off on Friday August 11 with an evening strongman competition put on by Clydesdale Strongman. Saturday August 12 is Elite Powerlifting Canada’s powerlifting meet and we end on Sunday August 13 with a Special event dedicated to the strong kids who are part of the Big Brothers and Sisters community. This event hosted by Brockville’s very own BECC CrossFit.
