Scenes from The Gladiator Games, 2012
“The Gladiator Games”
October 19, 2013
Strength & Honor Fitness (SHF) will sponsor “The Gladiator Games,” an amateur strongman contest featuring local residents from Somerset County. SHF is a boutique style gym that utilizes small group personal training that centers on improving members health and well-being through effective and authentic training methods. Members are motivated and empowered to reach their limitless potential.
SHF believes in giving back to the community and in 2012 raised over $5,000 with 100% of the proceeds donated to The Steeplechase Cancer Center at Somerset Medical Center. This year we are expanding our donation to include St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center and Puppies Behind Bars.
The Steeplechase Cancer Center at Somerset Medical Center is nationally recognized as a leader in cancer care, receiving the prestigious Outstanding Achievement Award from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. The center houses radiation therapy services, infusion therapy, breast imaging services, the medical center’s research team, oncologists’ and surgeons’ offices, nutritional counseling, patient navigator services, a patient resource library, the Sanofi US Wellness Boutique and complementary medicine services, such as yoga, t’ai chi, meditation and massage. The Sanofi US Breast Care Program is one of only a select few in New Jersey to achieve full accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers and has also been named a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.

St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the humane treatment of animals. Its services to the community include pet adoption and animal rescue, animal assisted therapy, humane education, dog training, a community pet food bank, and pet loss support. The Center operates animal shelters in Madison and North Branch, N.J. and a Dog Training and Behavior School in Madison, N.J. For more information please visit www.sthuberts.org
Puppies Behind Bars (PBB) trains prison inmates to raise service dogs for wounded war veterans and explosive detection canines for law enforcement. Puppies enter prison at the age of eight weeks and live with their inmate puppy-raisers for approximately 20 months. As the puppies mature into well-loved, well-behaved dogs, their raisers learn what it means to contribute to society rather than take from it. PBB programs bring the love and healing of dogs to hundreds of individuals every year. The dogs bring hope and pride to their raisers, and independence and security to those they serve.
