Sign up today for Kilos for a Cure and join us as weightlifters and coaches come together to honor cancer survivors, raise awareness about reducing cancer risk, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease. Teams of six athletes, three male and three female, will represent each club in the lifting portion of the contest. The full workout will be announced on October 1.
Participants are encouraged to fundraise in conjunction with this event to support the lifesaving mission of the American Cancer Society. The top performing teams, in both the lifting and fundraising aspects, will be recognized by USA Weightlifting and the American Cancer Society.

Your participation allows the American Cancer Society to help people facing cancer today and find cures to end the disease tomorrow. Through sponsorship, and the fundraising efforts of our participants, we will finish the fight against cancer.
