Hello Everyone,
My name is Joshua Peardot and I am a first year powerlifter.  In my most recent accomplishments, I had won the Wisconsin State Meet and earned myself a state deadlift record along with the gold medal. The State Meet qualified me for High School Nationals in Orlando, Florida where I earned my spot on Team USA. Although I did not officially lock down that spot at High School Nationals, I went to compete at Men's and Women's Nationals in Denver, Colorado. At this meet, I placed first, which secured my spot on the World's Team. By accepting this invitation and holding the spot, I will be representing the United States of America in the 105kg (230lbs) weight class at the World Championship Meet in Szczyrk, Poland on September 2nd. This is the highest level of powerlifting that anyone is able to attend. The ultimate goal would be to bring home the gold medal and the World Championship Title. This is an absolute dream of mine.  In order for me to accomplish this goal, I need to raise enough money for this dream to become a reality. Airfare and hotel are due July 5th. Any donations will be highly appreciated. Thank you everyone again for all of the support.

donations may also be sent to:
       POLAND FUND

3:00 pm — ???
Free Beer, Food, Raffles, Chinese Raffle,
Bean Bag Tournament at 1:00pm
2104 George Street | La Crosse, WI 54603
 

Jim Ward was diagnosed for the second time with squamous cell cancer in early May of this month.  He had the same kind 6 years ago and survived through months and months of chemo and radiation.  This time, unfortunately, they can not do radiation since it's in the same place (his groin) as before. It has also progressed into his neck and chest. Jim has started chemo, but has only had 1 treatment due to his platelets being low.  He has not been able to work for the past 7 years due to his disability from the cancer and is only on Badger care. His friends and family are banding together to make the rest of his time here with us as pain free as we can. Jim is an avid fisherman and hunter and loves the outdoors.  He graduated from Logan HS in 1979.

 The John Cina Seven organization will hold its third annual pumpkin ball tournament June 24-26 at the Genoa Village Park.  The weekend will also include a Friday fish fry, Sunday chicken Q, music, raffles, and other activities for the entire family.

John Cina devoted his adult life to helping the youth of the greater La Crosse area.  John was a Residential Treatment Facilitator aiding in the development of at risk youth at the Family and Children Center Residential Treatment Facility in La Crosse.  Coaching was one of John's greatest loves.  He was the varsity coach of the De Soto basketball, as well as an assistant for the De Soto football and Onalaska State Champion Legion baseball team.  If you played slow pitch softball anywhere near La Crosse, you have probably played with or against John.

John was an asset to the community and always willing to help.  The John Cina Seven fund carries on this legacy by raising money to benefit the communities within the De Soto Area School District and other youth programs and local ball fields. Please come help us celebrate a great man and raise money for an excellent cause.

MATHEA'S DIABETIC ALERT DOG

Mathea, age 13, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in March 2016. She is coping really well and doing an amazing job at managing her new challenges. She will live with these challenges for the rest of her life.  

People with type 1 often get dangerously low blood sugar levels while sleeping. There are many resources for preventing and helping with that problem, but a very effect solution is owning a diabetic alert dog. That is a specially trained dog that can smell the glucose changes and wake the person even saving their lives.
Mathea is raising money to get an alert dog so everyone can sleep better at night. They are thousands of dollars, but Mathea is doing yard work and babysitting to help raise the money. The family is also asking a favor of you for a donation of any size.  

Please come along side Mathea and help her get to the goal of $15,000 to buy a Diabetic Alert Dog that will be specially trained just for her through Diabetic Alert Dogs of America.
