The results and videos from our 3rd Annual Deadlifting for Doggies Fundraiser

We hosted our 3rd Annual Deadlifting for Doggies fundraiser on Saturday, February 1st. Deadlifting for Doggies is a no holds barred non-sanctioned 1 rep max deadlift contest fundraiser. The first year the donations raised went to Journey’s End Animal Sanctuary, last year we decided to have the proceeds go to Sniffing Snouts Pit Bull Rescue, and this year they went to Bully up Rescue. I like to try to give back to the community however I can. As a small business owner I have the opportunity to hold fundraisers like this is one which is one of the best ways I can think to give back.

Trinity and I have 3 pitbulls/pitbull mixes (2, Atticus and Pema, were strays, and we rescued our most recent addition, Bella, from the Seminole County Animal shelter) so this is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts.

Thank you to everyone who participated and donated! We ended up having 23 competitors (the most ever for one of our fundraisers) and raised $875!

We also made it on the local Spectrum News 13 thanks to Sports Anchor Luke Hetrick! You can check my previous post to watch the spot.

Thank you again to Anthony Liardo, Jon Burnham, Sami DePass, Judy and Davey Reed, of course my wife, Trinity, for all of their help. Thank you to Summer Lea, of Bully up Rescue, for bringing the bully puppies who were available for adoption.
