I'm super excited that my first powerlifting competition, Iron Maidens Raw Open, is not only all-female but is raising money for such a fantastic organization! It’s important that all women have the opportunity to advance themselves and the base is education.
The Stay Strong Scholarship is operated by Grace Outreach, a South Bronx based non-profit that works with women to further their financial goals and gain financial independence. The money raised pays for 70% of college tuition for undocumented students, Dreamers, and women who have been victims of predatory for-profit colleges. Students in these financial situations have no access to financial aid dollars and the undocumented students are ineligible for most scholarships.
Every little bit helps!
