The first ever "Feed, Clothe, Love and Lift" was a huge success!

Amarillo has a shockingly high rate of poverty. However, there are several organizations in the area that strive to provide clothing, food, and other necessities to those communities.

A local fitness group was inspired by the mission of one of these organizations. They decided to put together an event for fellow athletes.

The event took place on the roof of the Amarillo National Bank building. Over 20 competitors gathered to show of their skills and raise money for a great cause.

Their goal was to raise $15,000 for 2540 Ministries. 2540 is a local non-profit in Amarillo that raises money for low income families right here in the Texas Panhandle.
