Our Mission For The Kolbstrong Scholarship
We are the Kolb's. Jimmy is an equipped bench specialist and currently holds the record for history's heaviest bench ever done at 1,320lbs. Kate has been behind him on and off the platform for the last 12 years as his wife and training partner.
We know the hardships and sacrifices of loving a sport that doesn't pay often, and we know the expenses that go into being the best you can be on and off the platform. We would not be where we are today without the help of so many, and now it's our turn to give back, and help bring up the next big lifter.
Our goal for this scholarship is to award young athletes with a check for $1,000 each and a powerlifting goodie box. Our hope is that this money is used to help them buy equipment, pay gym dues, enter meets, pay for travel expenses, etc. so that they can succeed in the world of powerlifting.
