For the Tomahawk Leader
OMAHAWK – The Tomahawk Hatchet Weightlifting Club’s Liftathon held this spring raised over $3,000, the club announced last month.
This year’s funds will be used to promote the weight room and buy another weightlifting rack. The club also donated $350.00 to Kinship of Tomahawk, a private local nonprofit organization that “believes in and promotes the concept of youth mentoring.”
“The National Kinship office exists to serve as a resource for established and emerging local Kinship affiliates,” the club explained. “Currently, the Kinship Affiliate Network is made up of 36 affiliates located in the upper Midwest, having established mentoring relationships for nearly 1,800 of today’s youth.”
“We were proud to be able to support a great cause like Kinship,” said club President Tyler Beck.
Other club officers are Vice President Jake Kaminski, Treasurer Mason Evans, and Secretary Hunter Borchardt.
The club explained that its mission is to “encourage students to develop healthy fitness habits, develop stronger student athletes, promote weight room use, help underprivileged children, and assist with equipment needs in the weight room.”
