LifeSport’s 25th Annual Pennies for Pounds Contest!
July 31 to August 6, 2017
Pennies for Pounds is an athletic fundraiser in which LifeSport members perform a basic, one-repetition bench press exercise with as much weight as possible. Friends, neighbors, relatives and local businesses pledge support by contributing pennies for the pounds lifted.
Last year over $9,000 was raised for this great cause by serious lifters, fundraisers and those who just wanted to have fun and participate.
Many area businesses provide special prizes for the top fundraisers and the top lifters.
Proceeds from this event benefit the special athletes and recreation participants of the Philadelphia branch of United Cerebral Palsy, now Blossom – same great agency, new name!
