- InnerCity Weightlifting Featured on ESPN Video
By Joe Gammal
There’s no greater reward than working with people that make a difference, and helping them in some way to create the change they want. Our Synecticsworld team had that pleasure to work with Jon Feinman and his InnerCity Weightlifting team in Spring 2012 through collaboration with the Harvard Social Innovation Club. Check out this video on ESPN to see the difference InnerCity Weightlifting makes — “using weightlifting as a way to connect with others… to get kids off the streets and into the gym…to put that gun down and lift weights with their shoes perfect for squats.” Weightlifting is a means to create a supported life. Their graduates in turn support and coach others through weightlifting and through life.
