This fall, RWL Weightlifting, with support from USA Weightlifting, will team up with the American Cancer Society and its Coaches vs. Cancer initiative, by sponsoring the third annual “Kilos for a Cure” fundraiser during the month of October. 





  1. Each “KILOS FOR A CURE” registered team shall submit the top 2 male and the top 2 female totals with accompanying videos.
    1. Example: John snatched 85 kg with 5 continuous overhead squats, Sam snatched 95 kg with 5 continuous OH squats. Mary snatched 45 kg with 5 continuous OH squats, and Beth snatched 50 kg with 5 continuous OH squats. TOTAL KILOS =  275 KG. 
  1. For every additional team member that completes the Snatch + 5 Overhead Squats, the team will earn 1 additional point towards their total kilos. Videos must be taken and saved. Team members must be part of your club / facility. These videos will not be submitted to Kilos For A Cure unless requested for finalists.
    1. Example, if Team X has a total of 275 KG and they successfully have 25 more athletes from their gym participate, their final total is now 300 kg.
  1. Additional Information: Snatches must be full squat snatches at full depth and caught on fully extended arms, no press outs. Over head squats must also be to full bottom depth.
