TENAFLY, N.J. — Underground Training in Tenafly raised more than $7,000 for a local charity honoring a toddler who died of brain cancer in a powerlifting competition on Sunday.
Gym owner Moshe Klyman, 29, organized the competition for the Levy family of Englewood, who lost 4-year-old Evan last December. They recently launched #SmileThruIt to keep his spirit alive.
Proceeds from Klyman's competition will be going toward Kids4Evan, a charity foundation spearheaded by Moriah Students honoring Evan.
The Frisch School in Paramus took home the team trophy. Klyman, the school's wrestling coach, was the strongest male and Aviva Mandel, 18, was the strongest female.
Akiva Goldsmith, 17, was the strongest boy and Zoe Raykher, 14, was the strongest girl.
