BCWA and Right to Play Fundraiser

BRITISH COLUMBIA WEIGHTLIFTING ASSOCITAION

Dear British Columbia Crossfit Community,

On behalf of the British Columbia Weightlifting Association (BCWA) I would like
to invite you to participate in “Lift to Play,” a fund raising initiative put on by the
BCWA to raise funds for our athletes as well as to raise a charitable donation for
“Right to Play.”

Starting with last year’s 1st Annual BC Crossfit Weightlifting Championship, our
two communities have grown closer together and in my opinion, each has much
to gain in maintaining a strong relationship. This event could be another step in
strengthening our relationship, while providing a new challenge to your
community. Finally, it is an opportunity to practice social responsibility by raising
some funds for some of the less fortunate children around the world.

For those of you who may not be aware, Right to Play is a world wide charitable
organization that started right here in Canada. To quote their mission statement,
they strive to improve the lives of children in some of the most disadvantaged
areas of the world by using the power of sport and play for development, health
and peace.

In the BCWA’s 1st Annual “Lift to Play” challenge, we will gather pledges per
bodyweight lifted in a training session. We have set a benchmark goal of 100
times the lifter’s bodyweight using exercises used in a typical Olympic
Weightlifting training session. Unlike a competition where athletes congregate in
one spot to compete, this challenge will be held simultaneously across the
province at all BCWA clubs. All funds raised will be sent to the BCWA, where
20% would be returned to the individual clubs, 50% going to BCWA athletes, and
the remaining 30% going to Right to Play.

I believe that the challenge is in the Crossfit spirit, and may interest you to
participate. For insurance purposes, all athletes participating must be full
members of BCWA, and all host clubs/gyms must be an affiliated club with
BCWA. Individual membership forms, along with a club affiliation can be found
on our website (www.bcweightlifting.ca/bcwa-membership). If you have any
further questions in regards to the event, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Your friend in sport,
Walter Bailey
BCWA President
