October is Breastcancer Awareness Month. Zacht Beton and Sonita Muluh are working together to raise money and awareness for this important cause via powerlifting!
On October 30th we are organizing ‘Carry The Weight – A Breastcancer Awareness Challenge’. By participating you have the opportunity to create awareness, raise money, and – quite literally – help carry the weight!
How does it work?
Simple! You come to our gym and do your best deadlift. Every kilogram you lift can be sponsored by friends, family, colleagues, neighbours,… At the end of the day you raise an amount of money by yourself, that will then be added to the total amount of money we raise that day. This will integrally go to Pink Ribbon, an organization devoted to early detection and prevention of breast cancer, and supporting patients currently battling the disease.
I want to participate! How do I sign up?
Click on the button below and fill out the participation form.
- name and last name (does not have to be your official name)

As soon as your registration is complete you will receive a form that you can share via email, instagram, facebook,…
I don’t want to participate but I do want to donate
You don’t have to deadlift to join our campaign. Click on the button below to go directly to the donation page on Pink Ribbon and make your donation (tax refunds possible).
When? Sunday October 30th from 10 am until 18 pm.
Where? At the Zacht Beton Gym Victor Braeckmanlaan 119, 9040 Sint-Amandsberg (Ghent).
What can I expect?
You come over wearing or carrying your gym clothes (we have a small dressing room). When you arrive we will register your participation and the weight you intend to lift + the sponsors you collected for your lift. There is a space in which you can do a warm-up. When you’re ready you perform your best deadlift on one of our two platforms. To broaden our scope we will have a live stream airing the lifts on platform one, but also a more anonymous platform for those who prefer to lift off social media.
By participating in ‘Carry The Weight’ you are contributing to the continuous effort to raise awareness of the importance of early detection of breastcancer and the support of patients currently battling the disease.
