The 2018 Frank spellman meet
The Frank Spellman meet is special for our club because it's at this meet in 2017 that we officially decided to pursue becoming a competitive team. The LVB team didn't disappoint this past weekend with multiple repeat appearances at this year's Spellman meet. Every single athlete saw significant improvement over one year's time. Most notably our youth athletes almost doubled their totals from last year!
The LVB Weightlifting Team paved the way for other weightlifting teams in 2017 to become financially sustainable nonprofits. Our club, with the hard work of multiple members, set up the framework for a successful nonprofit club. One that supports it's members both emotionally and financially. One that pays it's coaches fair, living-wage salaries that reflect their full-time efforts.
Below is a selection of events & sales that our nonprofit is currently offering. We have 17 club members and we will need to raise about $30,000 in 2018 if we are going to stay on track with all of our goals. Thank you in advance for taking the time to look at them, and for your support.
