“Every day we hit the gym in pursuit of becoming what we consider "strong", but what are those numbers worth if we can't do something more with them?

On March 30th, 2019 we will support someone who shows another incredible form of "strong". The type where life can hand you anything and you show your resiliency and fierce will to live. 

That's why we are Deadlifting for Maya's Dream

Deadlifts for Dreams is a brand new fundraising event taking place on March 30th, 2019 at Midtown Barbell.

Deadlifters from across North America are coming together for a fun-filled competition with one goal in mind: bring a dream to life for a very special child here in Manitoba battling a life threatning illness"
