What is an Industrial Athlete? Industrial Athletes are those people who get up each morning and work for eight hours each day, day after day, building America. Just as a sports player must be in top physical condition to do their job and play their sport, these Industrial Athletes must also be in tip-top shape to do their jobs. Many of these Industrial Athletes also defended our country. Their old school work ethic and patriotism is both iconic and inspiring.
As we seek to honor our American Industrial Athletes, Leon’s has joined forces with Helmets to Hardhats and IKOCC (Indiana/Kentucky/Ohio Regional Council of Carpenters) to create a special, one-of-a-kind event. We are humbled and honored to also team up with all the North American building trades. The Industrial Athlete Championship will be a component of America’s Race.
The Industrial Athlete Championship logo you see here has been made into a decal that many of our Industrial Athletes are wearing on their hardhats. If you are in a building trade organization or in the construction industry and would like some decals for your team,
please contact Leon at (219) 263-8345.
