On Saturday 6th July we will be joining our friends from Combat Fuel at their gym in Andover for a world record attempt!
Founder Alex, staff, friends and anyone else who fancies taking part will be attempting to deadlift a combined total of 1,000,000kg over the course of 12 hours.
They’re doing this to raise money and awareness for Help For Heroes. We’ll be keeping everyone caffeinated with our strong coffee, as well as doing our share of lifting! All our proceeds for the day are being donated to the cause.
Combat Fuel was founded by Alex Berezynskyj, a former soldier with the Royal Anglian Regiment who was sadly medically discharged from the Army. He was looked after by Help For Heroes during this period and in recognition for the brilliant care he received, Combat Fuel have been donating 5% of all profits to this awesome charity since their launch.
Although less in the public eye than during the height of the war in Afghanistan, Help For Heroes continue to support people leaving the Armed Forces with life changing injuries. Many of these people struggle, meaning they and their families need specialist help to aid recovery from wounds – both visible and hidden. The money raised on 6th July will assist in allowing Help For Heroes to continue providing this vital support, now and in the future.
Combat Fuel are a fine example of the many amazing businesses launched by people leaving the Armed Forces. They produce a range of high quality sports supplements and run a strength & conditioning gym in Andover. Even though the gym has been open for less than a year, they’ve already added a second unit and doubled their floor space. It is always a great privilege and a source of inspiration to collaborate with businesses like Alex’s.
This is a pretty serious challenge and there’ll no doubt be some sore bodies by the end of it! If you live near Andover then we would love for you to come down and get involved! Even if you pop in for a coffee and a few reps on the bar it will make a big difference.
We’ll be providing coffee, cold brew, and will have coffee and merch for you to take home, with all profits from the day going to Help For Heroes.
We can’t wait to support Lift For Heroes!
