The Strong Man & Woman event raised $530 for the Children’s Organ Transplant Association on Saturday, March 4 at Crossfit Beaufort, according to Jeff Scott, event organizer and promoter. Participants lifted in various classes divided by age and weight, but they all lifted the same amount of weight. Those who lifted the most repetitions won the event, which requires both strength and stamina.
