The Story

EVENT DATE: Jun 23, 2018

Hosted By The Movement Minneapolis

   

Pull For Pride is a nationwide deadlifting fundraiser, open to all gender identities and experience levels. Participants will be raising $1 for every pound they plan to lift, to uplift homeless youth around the country. All seven Pull For Pride events will be fundraising for nonprofits in their community that provide direct support to LGBTQ youth struggling with homelessness. Go to PullForPride.com for more information on this powerhouse event.

  

Who Pull For Pride Minneapolis is Helping: Avenues For Homeless Youth

 

Pull for Pride Minneapolis will benefit Avenues for Homeless Youth, a non-profit dedicated to providing housing, basic needs, and supportive services to help homeless youth. Avenues is also one of the few Home Host programs available for LGBTQ homeless youth. Homeless adolescents and young adults, who number roughly 6,000 in Minnesota on a given day, are so often a segment of our population that feels powerless in the face of trauma and abuse.

   

About The Event: At the event up to 45 lifter-fundraisers will take turns deadlifting progressively higher weights, aiming to match dollar for pound to help lift up these often-unnoticed homeless youth. The deadlift, for the uninitiated, involves stepping up behind a loaded barbell, grasping the bar, standing up with the weight, and setting it back down on the ground. It is a simple lift that is imbued with meaning: coming forward to face a challenge, and succeeding through the simple mechanism of one’s own strength.
