I started lifting during the summer of 2017. I love how empowered it has made me feel. The deadlift is by far my favorite movement and I'm excited to participate and raise money for such a great cause. Please donate whatever you can -- I've set my goal for $500, but I know we can raise more than that. :)
Pull For Pride is a nationwide deadlifting fundraiser, open to all gender identities and experience levels. All seven Pull For Pride events will be fundraising for nonprofits in their community that provide direct support to LGBTQ+ youth struggling with homelessness.
Pull for Pride DC will benefit Casa Ruby, the only bilingual multicultural LGBT organization providing life saving services and programs to the most vulnerable in the LGBT community. Casa Ruby's mission is to create successful life stories among Transgender, Gender Queer and Gender Non-conforming Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual people. Their vision is to create a world where Transgender, Gender Queer, and Gender Non-conforming people pursue their dreams and achieve success in their lives without fear of discrimination, harassment, or violence due to their sexual orientation and or Gender Identity/Gender Expression.
Any little bit helps! Thank you! <3
