Aug. 31, 2016, 7:33 p.m. (ET)

At the upcoming National University and Under 25 Championships, USA Weightlifting will donate $2 of every ticket sale to flood relief in the Baton Rouge region. The competition, originally scheduled to take place in Baton Rouge, was relocated to New Orleans. 

"Our thoughts go out to all persons displaced in Louisiana. While we can no longer bring this competition to the city, we want to show our collective support for the all the people of Baton Rouge," said Phil Andrews, USA Weightlifting CEO.  

Competition will occur from September 22 to 25, 2016, at the Alario Center in New Orleans. Tickets can be purchased in advance on the USA Weightlifting website or at the door. A donation will be presented to the Baton Rouge Area Foundation at the conclusion of the weekend.
