How do Strength Campaigns work?

First, lifters like you set up a challenge – what we like to call a "Strength Campaign."  Then they pick a charity to benefit and go on to solicit their friends, family or community for sponsorships toward their goal.  Your lifting efforts become the centerpiece of leadership to raise awareness, assistance and mobilization in your community.  

Use word of mouth or social media to let people know you're lifting represents more than personal gains; it represents leadership for a cause you believe in.   It's just that simple.  

You can work as an individual or as a team unit (which we totally encourage, by the way).  The lifting challenge you set up can be simple and fun, or competitive and elite.  You can stage a whole contest, or just a simple series of lifts over time.  The choice is really up to you and your imagination.  Lift what you love to lift, and then use that passion to encourage others to give strength to the cause you represent.



What charities get benefitted?

Currently GiveStrength has placed the bulk of it's focus on alleviating the day-to-day burdens of living with cancer. While we frequently donate to research and prevention charities, our hearts go out to those friends and families surviving day to day.  Living with this burden is expensive medically, but also personally.  

However, often specific individuals or families themselves become the focus of a GiveStrength campaign.  Friends helping friends, neighbors helping neighbors; no charity is too small for your GiveStrength campaign. 

Have specific charitable interests beyond a cancer diagnosis?  GREAT – please let us know!  We one day see GiveStrength assisting lifters in all areas of charity and relief fundraising, so your ideas are more than welcome.  Please be in touch with your ideas if you're unsure how your charity fits.



What do strength campaigns look like?

There's no one, single way to execute your Strength Campaign. 

Most often lifters simply come together as makeshift teams around their Strength Campaign, working together to build enthusiasm and awareness for the cause their strength represents.  

The structure of the challenge can be a rolling challenge that spans many weeks, or a single event.  Keep in mind, the longer you run a Strength Campaign, the more of a leader you become, and the more support your cause receives.  

Your Strength Campaign can be focused on a specific lift, or across many exercises.  It can be about a total number of pounds lifted, total number of reps executed, or even number of lifters lifting.  Just as your lifting is always reaching new heights, so too is there no limit to your Campaign's shape!

If you need specific ideas, look through our past campaigns and challenges to see how folks set up their challenges.

Give your strength
in a Classy way.

The battle is challenging, but Classy makes giving our strength simple. 

Lifting is a passion that's simultaneously challenging yet simple. Put in the work and you get the result, yet that work is always filled with new challenges.   And a lot of other things are that way too; things like turning your passion for strength into real impact beyond the gym.  

So, we knew, right out of the gate, that we need to keep things simplified.  That's why GiveStrength uses the trusted Classy platform to help you coordinate your impact efforts.   Classy has been around since 2006, helping individuals and organizations have real impact in the world through coordinated fundraising.  There's no need to reinvent the process when there's already a solid form for lifting the heavy weight. 

After all, lifters like us are usually everyday folks, like you.  While a bit sophistication is always impressive, we ultimately want to get right into the mission.  It's just good, commonsense gym logic; while bells and whistles may impress, in the end you just want to get in there, get it done well, and not get bogged down in complexities.  Integrating the Classy platform into GiveStrength's bag of gear allows us – and you – this sort of simplification; streamlining our lifting events, fundraising efforts, and team-building.
