Practicing the Commands and the Iron Maidens Stay Strong Scholarship
BYOProgram and plan to focus on practicing the judges’ commands for all three lifts at Iron Maidens. We’ll run through Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift to make sure you feel confident about following the rules during the meet.
At this final Lift’n’Learn before Iron Maidens, we’ll be discussing tips and techniques for raising money for the 2nd Annual Stay Strong Scholarship.
Danae M. will be providing information about Grace Outreach students, how the Stay Strong Scholarship fund has worked over this past year, and our goals for keeping it going in 2017. Superstar fundraisers Bethany Erskine, Christina LaBrie, and Halston Bruce will be talking about how they raised so much money to support our scholarship students.
About Grace Outreach and the Scholarship
The Iron Maidens Stay Strong Scholarship is operated by Grace Outreach, a South Bronx based non-profit that works with women to further their financial goals and gain financial independence. Students at GO face significant financial barriers to starting college. They are first generation college students who are low-income and working to support their families.
All of the money we raise supports a scholarship fund that pays for 80% of college tuition for undocumented students or women who have been victims of predatory for-profit colleges. Students in these financial situations have no access to financial aid dollars and the undocumented students are ineligible for most scholarships.
Now, more than ever, we are proud to be giving this necessary support to undocumented women who are working to improve their lives through education. This scholarship rewards persistence—the grit and determination to keep going during hard times. We believe this recognizes and addresses the reality our students face, and also captures the essence of the Iron Maidens Competition.
