LIFTathon invites individuals and teams to show off their strength (and muscles) in support of the LIFT Fitness Foundation. LIFT is a non-profit organization helping individuals through its holistic wellness programs offered at no cost to our community’s most vulnerable neighbors. Your support of LIFTathon through sponsorship and participation allows LIFT to reach more individuals in need through fitness and nutrition education during our 60-day program of empowerment. LIFT some weight to help others lose weight… And gain the confidence they need to transform their lives!
