On October 17th, 2020, Terre Haute Intensity Resistance and Sports Training (THIRST) hosted their third annual Bench For Boobs fundraiser. This fundraiser is a friendly, local bench press competition held in Terre Haute, Indiana where all the proceeds go to PINK of Terre Haute.
The competition had 20 competitors from various places across Indiana, Illinois, and even Memphis, TN and was sponsored by NutraBio, Chik-Fil-A, Bar Bosco, Papa Johns, Top Guns, Climbing Cafe, among other local businesses. Winners of the event took home some free supplements, apparel, and tons of impressive prizes!
As a whole for the day, the event raised $1410 that was donated to PINK of Terre Haute, which will help pay for treatments, testing, prevention, and research in hops to find a cure for breast cancer.
We at THIRST gym, would like to thank EVERYONE that donated, competed, visited, volunteered, and did anything to help us on this day to help provide funds for the battle against cancer! We hope to see more competitors and support in October of 2021.
