Hello all! So I’m here raising money for the Ali Forney Center, which helps support LGBTQ youth struggling with homelessness. On June 16 I will be participating in a friendly deadlift competition that is meant to bring people together and raise some money for a great cause. I got into powerlifting for my own personal gain but this time I wanted to do something for someone else.
I was blessed with the support that I needed from family and friends so I never had to worry about where I would lay my head or where my next meal would come from. However, not everybody has that same support.
I will be attempting 3 lifts and I plan to raise $1 for every pound that I lift. Any donation, big or small, is greatly appreciated, not only by me but all of the LGBTQ youth that have to struggle with homelessness.
