The 9th Annual Press Out Domestic Violence Bench Press Competition fundraiser will be held on Thursday, May 22, from 3-6 p.m. in the Erlanger Medical Mall.
The goal is to raise funds to support the Partnership for Families, Children and Adults of Chattanooga, a local agency dedicated to assisting victims of domestic abuse through counseling, crisis intervention and education and prevention services.
The event has been successful in the past years thanks to support and involvement of residents, faculty, staff, and local business sponsors, said officials. For their donation participants get a T-shirt and a chance to show off to fellow colleagues and possibly win trophies and prizes from sponsors this year (Chato Brasserie, Elemental, Taco Mamacita Rock Creek, Milk and Honey, Tennessee Aquarium, Good Dog, River Street Deli, Thrive Fitness, Fast Break Athletics, Hot Yoga Plus, and more).
There will be numerous different competition categories, male and female categories, as well as prizes for the programs and departments that show up with the most people to participate.
