Hello All,

On Friday, May 3rd @ 1PM, a team of six OXO co-workers will be participating in The 3rd Annual Cookie Press Fundraiser!

We have each set individual bench pressing goals that we have been training to meet or beat, and are seeking sponsors to raise funds for Cookies For Kids Cancer in support of the event. In the last two years, we’ve raised over $8,500!

If you would like to support us and more importantly give to Cookies, please make a donation on this fundraising page between now and the event date. Our goal is to raise $5,000.

A recap of the event, complete with videos will be available on the fundraiser page shortly after it takes place.  

Here’s the 2019 Team and our goals!

Becca del Monte – 70lbs, 10 Reps

This will be Becca’s first year on the team and we’re happy to have her! She’s new to bench pressing, but not new to setting goals and crushing them! She’s been training hard at the gym on 2M so looking forward to a stellar performance!

Francoise Vielot – 80lbs, 10 reps

This will be Francoise’s second year participating. Last year she nailed her goal of 70lbs, 10 reps, so happy to see her pushing herself further. No doubts she’ll have another big day!

Diana Rey – 80lbs, 12 reps

This will also be Diana’s second year in the Cookie Press. She had very impressive performance last year, destroying her goal of 70lb, 12 reps by doing 15 reps!! Like Francoise, she will be elevating to an 80lb target this year. Who do you guys think will do more reps?  

Mack Mor – 200lbs, 7 reps

Mack is returning for his 2nd stint in the Cookie Press as well. Although he missed last year’s goal of 225lbs, 5 reps by just one rep, it was the most he’d ever benched in his life and an accomplishment of which to be incredibly proud!

Mike Delevante – 225lbs, 10 Reps

This is my 3rd year trying for the same goal. 2017 – 7 reps. 2018 – 8 reps. Will be super embarrassing to miss it again. Shame is my fuel.

Mike Day – 225lbs, 10 Reps

It’s year 2 for this Mike D. He set the bar high for his rep total last year and although he didn’t quite get there, he still was able to rock 225lbs for 14 reps! NFL linebackers and OXO Sr Accountants put up those types of numbers. A busy financial year for Helen of Troy Housewares Division leaves little time for training, so All Day is backing off his goal for this year. No doubt he’ll kill it!  

There you have it. Please feel free to spread the word. Thanks to all who rally behind the team and help us raise as much as we can for Cookies!!!

Together we can make a difference for kids' battling cancer. Thank you for your support!
