Everything You Need to Know About Iron Maidens 2018
We’ll be hosting the 4th-annual Iron Maidens Raw Open powerlifting meet tomorrow from 9am to 6pm. Come out to the gym to support strong women lifting for a great cause! You can find the event schedule and more info here.
All classes are cancelled on Saturday. A floater WOD is scheduled as Saturday’s programming for folks who did Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday’s workouts this week and want to get their fitness in today. See the first comment on this post.
What else? Well, as you faithful blog readers know, Iron Maidens lifters are raising funds for the Stay Strong Scholarship, which supports students at Bronx-based Grace Outreach. This year, our goal is to raise $40,000 to continue supporting these students. As of Thursday at 7:30pm, we’re at $18,105 raised. Can you help us reach our goal? Show some love by donating to your favorite CFSBK lifter(s) or directly to Grace Outreach through the 2018 Crowdrise campaign below.
Last, but certainly not least, there will be food and drink from Iron Maidens sponsors for sale, so come hungry! Check out this list of prizes and sponsors on the IM Instagram.
