This year’s battle pitted two past winners against each other for a chance to win money for their favorite charity.

“When you finish with the brace (hand) drill, once you get through the wood, that’s the most satisfying part,” said Corey Rosa, one of the competitors.

“It’s fun to me, challenging, and just give it all, putting it all on the line, pray to God, come out on top,” added Kaleo Ah Sam.

Rosa won three of the four events, raising $1,500 and Ah Sam raised $500. Both men chose the same charity: The American Diabetes Association.
