Mississauga's Athletic Leaders is back with their 3rd Annual Kettlebell Swings For Breast Cancer
Join Athletic Leaders alongside their Owner- World Record Holder Granville Mayers, as they compete to do 1000 Swings per Hour in Support of the Canadian Cancer Society
By: Athletic Leaders
At the 1st annual challenge in 2013 and the 2nd annual challenge in 2016, a combined total of 60,000+ swings were completed which helped to raise over $5000.00+ for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF). The donations were used for cause-related work, including breast cancer research grants, fellowships and community health grants. This year Athletic Leaders is excited to partner with the Canadian Cancer Society to complete more swings and raise even more money to help fight cancer.
"We are gearing up to break the current swing record for our 3rd annual edition of Kettlebell Swings For Breast Cancer in support of the Canadian Cancer Society. We believe this event not only helps to support a good cause but also effectively encourages the community, by using physical activity as a tool to embrace a healthy lifestyle."- says Granville Mayers, Owner of Athletic Leaders.
At 44 years old Coach Granville Mayers defies odds as being one of the strongest powerlifters over the age of 40 in Canada. From December 2016 to present, Mayers has competed in a number of meets to officially hold the current Canadian Powerlifting Federation national records in a number of fitness categories. He is currently also the 2018 Amateur World Powerlifting Congress Record Holder.
"In less than 2 months I have set 9 world records and I am honoured to be the 2018 AWPC Masters World Champion. At 44, I am one of the strongest men in Canada and drug free! This is why it is important that I continue to live a healthy and active lifestyle to keep in shape, become stronger and break more records. Our fitness programs at Athletic Leaders prove that at any age you can be fit, strong and reach your fullest potential. At our fundraising event you will have the opportunity to meet with me and my team, learn how you can start your own fitness journey and help fight cancer."- says Granville Mayers, Owner of Athletic Leaders.
