    Check out the above link. I started a nationwide raffle for the event. Please take a look and spread the word. Every little bit helps no matter how small and there are some great prizes to be won. At the worst you will have given money to a great cause and great event.

    Along with the event it self starting next week Ill be going to several functions and working directly with the 2000+ kids spreading the word of athletics in general as well as strength sports and nutrition.

    Again every little bit helps no matter how small.

    Phil,

    Casey, you should try and make it to the event!!

    update

    I now have at least three bands coming, most likely more and several comedians that will be playing on one soccer field , then the athletic events on the other. I also found a caterer (all star catering) that is going to come and bring their service and sell 100% all beef 1/4 lb hot dogs for $2.50 and give the profits to the event to raise money for the charity.

    Should be a great time for all, Get those entries in
