Event Shirts
Event shirts can be added at registration checkout these come in two styles a unisex t-shirt and a ladies tank top. The unisex t-shirts are a high quality blend Bella+Canvas t-shirt with and athletic fitment. The ladies tanks are Next Level Ideal Racerback Tanks, these are a new style that is slightly more fitted than the tanks we usually get at our events so if you like the looser fit think about going up a size.

Raise Pledges
A majority of our fundraising for these causes will be through pledges. Registered athletes are encouraged to collect “per rep” pledges from family, friends, local businesses. The pledges will be in the form of a “per rep” amount of money. For example, a local business could pledge $0.01 per rep that is completed at the participating affiliate, if the affiliate were to perform 4000 total reps for the workout that local business would donate $40 to the charity designated by the participating affiliate.

Pledges can be as little as $0.01, no pledge is to small.

Download Team Pledge Sheet

Simply print off a pledge sheet and start collecting pledges. Bring your pledge sheet with you to the day of the event.

Athletes will be responsible for collecting their pledges after the event and returning pledges to the coordinator at the box you are participating at. Checks should be made out directly to the charity that your affiliate is sponsoring, Or can be processed online make sure the pledger indicates which affiliate they are donating to.

Raider Project WOD

We're excited to announce we will be hosting the Raider Project Workout Of The Day, right here at our Lift Athletics Facility in Wausau! This especially hits home because one of our owners, Korey Stern is one of the first founding donors of the Raider Project. The mission of the Raider Project is to facilitate a peaceful, successful transition from active military service to a civilian life filled with hope and purpose. Over the past year, this project has provided over 300 services to Veterans ranging from suicide prevention, drug addiction treatment, PTS therapy, counseling, wilderness retreats, climbing retreats, and community sports programs. 100% of funds raised through this event and sales of apparel and gear from their website go directly to the mission. Go to their website www.raiderproject.org to register for the Raider Project WOD and find our gym "Lift Athletics" underneath the list of gyms while registering. Just $25 to register! Check out their apparel too and find a shirt to wear at the event! If you can't participate in the workout, buy a t-shirt from their website and come to support those who are taking part in the workout! Let's all get together for this great cause and make a difference!
