We all have our own way of giving back. This event was hosted by Joliet Central and is a memorial to one of the former teachers, Dave Christiansen, killed by a drunk driver.
Jennifer Christiansen, Dave’s wife, andGardner Coughlin are both teachers at Joliet Central and reach out to lifters in the community to see if they can lend a hand.
It was an honor to load bars and spot these kids because I stood side by side with my mentors in powerlifting from years gone by.
Enjoy the photos and videos.
