Janis Foligno died in July 2009 after her battle with breast cancer. The foundation in her name has supported a number of charities including the Sudbury Regional Hospital Foundation's Breast Cancer Equipment Fund, the Vale Hospice, Meals on Wheels and the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario.
The power-lifting competition will take place on Saturday June 7 at CrossFit Sudbury, and will feature teams of four competitors – made up of two men and two women – vying for the top spot.
Each team has paid $200 to participate in the competition. All funds go directly to the Janis Foligno Foundation.
