This will be a sanctioned weightlifting event through USA Weightlifting. The competitors will compete in the snatch and clean and jerk to establish a total within their weight class.

This meet sanctioned by USA Weightlifting as a fundraiser to support and raise funds for the Charlotte Chapter of the Irreverent Warriors (CIW). The meet will be held on July 11th, 2020.  The Irreverent Warriors is a not for profit organization that organizes marches in major cities across the US as a means to raise awareness for as well as prevent veteran suicide.  Each day 22 US veterans commit suicide. The marches organized by IW provide veterans a chance to build and cultivate lasting bonds between fellow veterans.  These marches provide a crucial mental health support system for each and every one of it's participants.  All entry fees are a donation that goes directly to CIW and their march being held in Charlotte on the 25th of July.  

Your entry fee will cover, an event t-shirt, donation to CIW.  Early bird entries will receive a custom event pint cup that will allow their first beer free from the keg provided by a local brewery.  The meet will be held at Crossfit Axon on Lake Leslie Lane in Charlotte, NC.
