Lifting Pounds for Youth

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit Awakenings, of Clark County Ohio-Nehemiah Foundation of Springfield- Clark County, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me and the future of our youth. This fundraiser will benefit youth with education, empowerment, and inclusion creating safe spaces for youth to belong and have a place in community where they don't feel a sense of connection. We have been successful in connecting with many youth at risk, in poverty, and who have been affected by addiction in their families, domestic violence, bullying, as we have heard their stories.  There are many youth initatives that do good work, and we can do some of the critical things that some have not done such as take these youth to community such as buildings, businesses, art galleries, work spaces, eateries, colleges, and many other places that they don't get opportunities to own.  Our research has shown that relationships from those that have social capital mean yhe most! They tell us that they don't have the resources and a platform to claim their place in our communities. We at Awakenings have been intentional about creating those safe spaces through giving them the "Keys to the City" and setting up training, education, job shadowing, mentorship, one on ones, group work, work force development, college visits, trade schools, and empowerment! I as a kids did not have a Champion or mentorship sharing their social equity with me. Awakenings has been able to bridge that gap and change some lives. We want to change more! We want to continue to send youth to camps, build confidence, cast vision, provide some or their immediate needs with dignity and much more! Our goal is to become a foundation that youth can turn to for generations to come!

Please join in and lets start a challenge that at $3 to $5/lbs, lets see how we can increase 25 to 30lbs on our lifts (squats, deadlifts, and bench press) or crossfit progressions! Tailor your program and lets lift pounds for youth! I started today and I have a goal to increase my bench by 30 lbs by 4/4/2020. Log your progress and join in! If you don't want to participate just donate! Make this fun and set your goals! Thank you!
