KIM TO ZIM - JULY 2019 POWERLIFTING OUTREACH TRIP
Powerlifting Great, Kimberly Walford, will be joining the Lift4Life team and 12 other strength athletes from around the world to spread strength in Zimbabwe! We will be working together in local communities to share knowledge, resources, and a love of lifting.
ABOUT THE OutREACH Trip
Since 2015, Lift4Life has been working in Zimbabwe utilizing powerlifting as a means to provide humanitarian assistance. We are excited for this opportunity to now welcome YOU to be a part of our outreach on the ground. Powerlifting in Zimbabwe is addressing crime and drug abuse, fostering women empowerment, creating employment and livelihood opportunities, building communities - the list goes on. Are you ready to be a part of the power of powerlifting?
