The Story Behind LIFT STRONG

The Underground Strength Gym came to life when I was mentored over 10 years ago by a world renown fitness coach who decided to help me out. Unknown to me, he was battling Stage IV Leukemia. He never said a word about it. We chatted, day after day, exchanging e mails, chatting on AOL Instant Messenger (who remembers that!!??) and sometimes by phone. He never asked for anything return, except that I “pay it forward” one day.

When I found out that my friend was battling stage IV cancer I broke down and cried. I cry just typing this. I’ve learned that my position of influence in this world is not something to be taken lightly, neither is my health or the health of those I love.

For the past 6 years, soon to be 7, I’ve held a fundraiser every summer called LIFT STRONG where 100 % of the proceeds go to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation. This our first winter challenge for LIFT STRONG and the first time the proceeds will be split for someone in this town who needs our support.

I also feel it’s important for people to take the time to reflect on their own health and how important it is. This is an opportunity for you to take a part of your day to do something special for others and to test yourself.

This is YOUR opportunity to Pay It Forward!
