DVIP Bench Press Event

Each year the Carver College of Medicine McCowen Learning Community hosts a Bench Press competition for students, faculty, and community members to raise funds for the Domestic Violence Intervention Program (DVIP) of Iowa City. Participants can compete in a Max-Out Weight and Max-Out Repetitions competition. There will be food trucks and raffle prizes as well! Participants can bring non-perishable food, diaper, and toilet paper donations to the event for additional raffle tickets!
