Mike Lifts 100 Tons!
Saturday, September 12, 8:00am-4:00pm
CrossFit Carol Stream (163 E St. Charles Road, Carol Stream)
In past years, Mike DeMeritt has hosted a successful fundraiser, Mike Runs 100, in support of DuPagePads. Raising nearly $50,000 since 2010 to benefit the agency’s annual Run-Walk, Mike endeavored on a new challenge last year, Mike Lifts 100 Tons.
During this time, Mike was not only able to attain his goal of lifting 100 tons within 8 hours, but he was also able to exceed his fundraising goal of $10,000.
This year Mike is at it again and will lift weights to reach a cumulative total of 100 tons at CrossFit Carol Stream on Saturday, September 12th from 8:00am-4:00pm.
Donations to this inspiring feat would be so appreciated – click here to learn more or donate today!
= $10,000 for DuPagePads
We knew Mike was an avid supporter of DuPagePads, but this time he has outdone himself. Within the past few months Mike found out he had a problem with his heart, causing quick fatigue and other symptoms. Thankfully he had an expert medical team on his side and is working his way back to 100%.
Dedicated to those who are homeless, Mike has decided to CONTINUE on with Mike Lifts 100 Tons with a little help from his friends. Please help us as we cheer on these strong and strong-willed athletes as they take on this challenge!
