Lindsey Pindsey's Fundraiser:

Lindsey's Pull for Pride Fundraiser

THE STORY:

Up until a year ago if you had asked me what a deadlift was I'd have said, "Um...is that the thing where you trust-fall stiff bodied into a group of nervous colleagues you're stuck doing an ice breaker with and they try to lift you up and someone sticks their thumb in your armpit on accident?" Turns out, that is not what a deadlift is and I have the calloused hands to prove it. (Also? Employers? Stop doing the trust fall thing. It's weird and not fun.) 


This year during Twin Cities Pride, the gym community I belong to is hosting a deadlifting fundraiser called Pull for Pride. Even though I will be on the modest end of the heavy-lifting-ability spectrum for this event (as in, the usual suspects will probably be warming up with my final weight) I am hoping to compensate by showing up with some cash for a great cause.  The beneficiary, Avenues for Homeless Youth, provides housing, all basic needs, and the supportive services youth need to achieve their dreams.


Bonus: this will be my first time attempting to pick up heavy things outside of the usual low-pressure class setting and I will probably be in some kind of wacky costume AND it will be my birthday week. So, instead of buying me a drink that weekend, throw some bucks to homeless youth services and celebrate our community trying to be stronger in ways big and small.
