Weightlifting competition raises funds for blind children

On Saturday 19 November, the Military Police Unit hosted a weightlifting competition at the Buell Fitness and Aquatic Centre to raise money in support of the Military Police Fund for Blind Children.

The competition format was based on bodyweight rather than how much weight was lifted, measuring instead the strongest pound-for-pound lifter. The event raised $380 towards ongoing fundraising efforts.

Congratulations to the winners!

  • First place male lifter – Cpl Mitten, CFMPA student
  • First place female lifter – Ocdt Segal, 4CDSB
  • Second place male lifter – Pte Sigouin, RCEME student
  • Second place female lifter – Cpl Molloy, MP

Prize packs for the first-place winners were generously donated by BOSS Supplements, and second place winners each received a $25 gift card generously donated by Barnstormer Brewing Company.
