Men United prostate cancer event - through MT community!!!

Firstly this doesn't have to be a men only thing it's just that the demographic on MT is probably going to be predominantly blokes.
 
I would like to organise an event that involves lifting, through this community to raise awareness & money for prostate cancer UK. I'm thinking we set a weight target - or a weight equivalent depending on the numbers we get interested within a designated timescale - say 8 hours
 
Squats
Deadlifts
Bench press
Leg press
 
If you aren't aware of prostatecanceruk.org their ethos is getting men together to raise awareness and support for this condition. As an online community this is a very active one (I've not been involved too long but enjoying being part) and I think this would be a good excuse for a social gathering for a laugh and to do something for a good charity.
 
My thoughts are 1 gym somewhere central that is not too bad for us to all reach. As such if I can start a list that comprises of name(MT name) and location, from this we can see what kind of numbers we may be able to rally together and also find a location that sits as centrally as possible. This way it may also be easy to sort car sharing out to reduce costs for people travelling from similar locations. Once we get an idea of interest we can look at sorting a date, location etc out.
 
I will start with my adding my name to the list:

To ease the travel burden, it might be worth considering a target with X number of participants in their own gyms around the country with a (maybe branded) sheet to fill in with totals lifted, photograph themselves with, then add it to a cumulative online total.

I think that's a great idea pal.

We should work together more often. I'll edit when I get home
