Team Impact Brings Feats of Strength & Inspiration to Carthage Kids

Updated:

The Carthage Middle School hosted the final stop in a nationwide tour of extreme strength performances by a group known as "Team Impact."

From shattering cement to dangerously blowing up hot water balloons, Team Impact's third and final performance had audience members amazed by what they saw.

"It's really cool, I like how they break things,"6th grader Ethan Trueblood said.
 
"It's fun because you get to see their muscles and they break stuff," 4th grader Cooper Patton. "It's pretty interesting."
 
"I don't know how they do it, but it's pretty amazing," 5th grader Bailey Wallace said.
 
This is just one of nearly 1,000 school visits the group makes around the world each year.   Their mission is to motivate young people.

"Our intent is that they come and really have a good time," Team Impact performer Jeff Neal said.  "We want them to know that it's okay for people that have faith to have a good time and enjoy these feats of strength, but we do indeed want them to come away knowing that what changed our life is not that I played football or that Randell is a power lifter, but that we have a relationship with Jesus Christ and they can have that too."
 
Their personal stories and messages of encouragement stay with the kids just as much as the extreme strength performances do.

"Follow your dreams and never give up on yourself," 5th grader Jackson Taylor said.
 
"Stand up for yourself and never get up," 2nd grader Colton Taylor adds.
 
This is the second year "Team Impact" has come to Carthage Middle School and they're already planning to come back again next year.
