Today: Iron Maidens Raw Open!
Today’s the day! Iron Maidens, one of CFSBK’s most anticipated events of the year, is finally here! We’ll be hosting our 4th-annual women-only powerlifting meet at the gym today from 9am to 6pm.
All classes (including Open Gym) are cancelled today. We’ll be back on our normal schedule tomorrow.
Lifters will be divided into two sessions:
Session A: This session begins at 9:00am and consists of 123, 132 and 148 weight classes. Weigh-in begins promptly at 7:00am.
Session B: This session begins at 2:30pm and will consist of 165 and 165+ weight classes. Weigh-in begins at 12:30pm.
The Stay Strong Scholarship
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 Friday at 9:30pm, we’re at $23,520 raised. Show some love by donating to your favorite CFSBK lifter(s) or directly to Grace Outreach through the 2018 Crowdrise campaign below.
Sponsors and Prizes
Competitors will receive prizes from our awesome and generous sponsors. Thank you, sponsors!
