🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Freedom is not free. In fact many have paid the ultimate price to ensure we preserve the many rights we so often take for granted. The Lift for Freedom is a yearly event organized to help give back to those who have already given so much. We pick a different military / law enforcement or fire fighter charity. This year for 2018, proceeds were donated to the @greenberetfoundation in hopes of lending a hand to Army Special Forces veterans and their families. It’s refreshing to see a community come together for a greater cause.
#LiftForFreedom2018 at Miami’s Home of Old School Iron @miami_iron_gym A huge thank you to Jorge @jdv964 and Albert for hosting us for a second year.
To Matt Kunk from the @themiamibarbellclub, brother I love you and from the bottom of my heart thank you for everything you did leading up to the event. I don’t know how to express how grateful I truly am.
To Mike @thebattleaxegym and the Battle Axe Clan, what your gym has is beautiful and so rare in today’s day and age. The culture of The Battle Axe Gym shined throughout the entire event. I can’t thank each and every single member of the Battle Axe for not only helping load and unload plates, bars, move equipment, chairs, etc. but showing up in full force and competing in every category for every event. @nikkig2791 @reba_pie @mariaappleseed @tomer.zach @vinnner @bbash89 and so many others from the Battle Axe clan. THANK YOU.
To my brother Edgar @edgar_a_mejia We’ve learned a lot, not only about ourselves but the people within our circle this second year for Lift For Freedom. A lot of arguments, ass chewings, stress to the gills but we got it done. That’s what matters.
A huge congratulations to this years champions and overall winners of Lift For Freedom 2018 @ramburgey86 and @_savageelexiii_ you showed the crowd what Lift For Freedom is all about and I hope you come out in 2019 to defend your titles. 💪🏼 Let everyone know that we STOOD FOR SOMETHING and we STOOD for our country. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 We will continue to stand for those who give so much and ask for nothing.
We will see you in 2019. •
