8th Annual Charm City Strongwoman Contest

2018 Strongwomen
The 8th Annual Charm City Strongwoman Contest is here!!
This contest is a Memorial Contest for my sister Charlotte Giza who died on February 11, 2015 after a 3 1/2 year battle with colon cancer. She was my inspiration and my other half. She was also as strong as she was beautiful. This contest is for her and for ALL the strong women out there.
