I’m excited to be participating in this year’s Pull for Pride. Pull for Pride is an annual weightlifting event held to raise money for the Ali Forney Center, which provides crucial services for homeless LGBTQ youth.
Pull for Pride is organized to coincide with LGBTQ Pride Month, a time when we celebrate the LGBTQ community and are challenged to find ways to give back.
Participating in Pull for Pride is doubly special this year. I'll be raising money for a great cause through weightlifting, a sport that I love. In addition, competition will take place on the weekend before my 40th birthday.
Every PFP lifter is challenged to raise $1 for every pound that they hope to lift during the event. I have started my fundraiser by giving an initial $40 with the eventual goal of setting a personal record north of 300 LBS at the event.
Please join me in celebrating, Ali Forney, Pride Month and the milestone of 40 by making a small donation to my Pull for Pride fundraiser…
