From Mike Subs, who led the Deadlift Competition ("Party").
Here were the guidlines: Teams of 2-5, teammates take turns completing sets (5-8 reps) for 30 minutes. Buy-in was $5 and for every set completed that teammate donates $1. Bars went up to 225 lbs. Here are the stats:
3,557 Total Reps
THATS 280 Tons lifted for Derek!
From Sean Casey, who organized the "Laps for Derek"
We ran from 8am-12pm, continuously handing off a baton. When someone came back they either ran another lap or handed it off. Some ran individually, some in small groups, the participation was consistent and more than willing! WE RAN 33 MILES IN TOTAL!
oh and this :)
