Event description

Description

Come test your grip strength in an international event hosted here in Boulder, Colorado, with the local grisport community. Though gripsport is a small community worldwide, it is a growing sport, and we want to encourage you to come challenge yourself to a new type of lift. You may even break a world record!. All experience levels welcome.

To encourage participation particularly for those who have never competed in gripsport -- or perhaps even tried grisport, we are hosting this event with free entry, but donations to Children's Hospital Colorado are appreciated.

Why Children's Hospital Colorado? This past summer our newborn son was diagnosed with an airway disorder requiring in-patient surgery. Fortunately, the surgery went well. However, our multiple stays and interactions with others at Children's Hospital opened our eyes and humbled us to realize how fortunate we were to leave with a smile. We would like to give back to this community and offer our support to the children and families who are struggling through difficult times.

All donations will be given to the Colorado Children's Hospital by following their donation guidelines below.
