The Strongest of the Strong at the Garfield County Fair & Rodeo is the first Strongman competition to be held at the Garfield County Fair & Rodeo. This year all proceeds will be going to Brent’s Place. Brent’s Place is the only certified safe-clean complex for children suffering from illness. They house the child and their family with 3 meals per day at no cost to the family. One of my family members had Leukemia and because of that, her and her family lived there for almost a year before her passing. It is because of this that all of the proceeds are going to Brent’s Place. We will have shirts for sale and donation jars placed around the event area.


I thank all who compete and donate to help Brent’s Place.
