NSU Fraternity Holding Powerlifting Competition to Raise Money for MS Society

FT. LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. – The Kappa Sigma fraternity at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) will host a philanthropic powerlifting competition on Saturday, March 28. The “Kappa Sigma Strongman” will consist of events testing the strength and endurance of its competitors while raising funds and awareness for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

NSU’s Kappa Sigma chapter has been impacted by MS as two members of the fraternity have mothers with the disease. Kappa Sigma members Anthony Rando and Steven Reddy both have moved back to their homes in New York to be closer to their families and assist their mothers. Kappa Sigma organized the strongman competition in support of their brothers and to assist the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Events in the competition will include bench press, dead lift, shuttle race, farmer’s walk, and truck push. Both men and women will compete and participants will be divided according to weight class. The event is supported by USA Powerlifting and the South Florida chapter of the National MS Society.

The Kappa Sigma Strongman will be held on the grounds in front of the Alvin Sherman Library on NSU’s main campus at 3301 College Ave. in Davie. The competition will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, however donations will be accepted. All proceeds benefit the South Florida chapter of the National MS Society.

For more information, contact event coordinator Maurice Brown at (561) 929-1760 or kappasigstrongman.oh@gmail.com or visit http://www.ohkappasigma.com/Strongman.html.
