- DEADLIFT: 280lbs
- FUNDRAISING: $1 for each lb, min. $280
I began lifting in 2017 to build confidence and help with anxiety, and in March 2019 I started training as a powerlifter. This is my first meet!
Pull for Pride, organized by the Women's Strength Coalition, is a dealift only event supporting LBGTQ homeless youth.
National studies show that 40% of homeless youth identify as LGNTQ, as compared to 7% of the general population. After coming out to their families or being discovered to be LGBTQ, half of all teens receive a negative reaction and more than 1 in 4 are thrown out of their homes.
I am participating in Chicago's Pull for Pride, supporting Project Fierce, who seeks to create affirming transitional housing for LGTBQIA+ youth in Chicago.
Plates come in 5, 10, 25, and 45lbs. Sponsor a plate for $5, $10, $25, or $45 to help reach the goal of deadlifting 280lbs and fundraising $280!
