A donation of $250 was presented to support six local women training at Merrickville’s local gym, Power Pole Performance to head to Ireland this summer to attend the World Amateur Powerliftng Championships. This group of athletes’ range in ages from 14-51under the guidance of Hilda Siegel, owner of Power Pole Performance gym. What a great opportunity for women from a small community such as ours to be part of not only a competition but be a role model to all women to stay healthy, active and build a better life.
