Pushing The Human Envelope


at Virtus Institute:

4-22-18  Squats for Tots 2.0

Join us for a fun-filled day raising the bar while raising funds for the Pittsburgh Children’s Hospital Free Care Fund. Squats-For-Tots is more than just a fundraiser. We are proud to give our lifters from the Acme Providers independent living community an opportunity to showcase their strength.

Friends, family and athletes of all skills and strength levels are welcome to participate in this family friendly event. Competitors will have three opportunities each to test their one repetition max in the squat, the press and the deadlift. Participants will seek individual or organizational sponsors, each of whom will pledge a per-pound donation. Competitors may also reach out to the community for support in the form of one-time donations.

For more information on the day’s events, additional sponsorship pledge forms and competition guidelines, please visit www.IronCityAthleticClub.com or email [email protected]
