Champion sportsman Dan Chepa will be raising money for The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice as he strives to achieve for a world title.
Dan Chepa, aged 29, from Browning Street, Stafford, will be competing with the world’s elite when he travels to Antwerp, in Belgium, to take part in the World Bench Pressing Competition on the 29th June, organised by World Drug Free Powerlifting Federation.
He is hoping to lift 180kg, which is more than twice his body weight, and set a new personal best to win the title. This will add to The British National Bench Press Competition Title, which he has already won a number of times.
In preparation for the championship, he is training intensively for few hours every day, seven days a week, at his local gym Elite 2000 in Stafford.
Dan, who is a project buyer for ALSTOM Grid, in Stafford, hopes to raise more than £1,000 for The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice by getting sponsorship and donations through his just giving page: http://runningsponsorme.org/Dan-Chepa
He said: “I am fit and healthy and able to enjoy sport, but the children at the Hospice have not been so fortunate, so any money I can raise through my hard work will be used to help make their life a little easier.”
