Hey everyone! Rockwell Barbell, the gym I’m a member of, is hosting Chicago’s Pull for Pride this year. It’s the first time this event is being held in the city, and when I saw that Rockwell was hosting, I knew I had to hit the platform.
On June 8th, my plan is to raise $1 for every pound I lift. I’m projecting my attempts to be 495, 505 and 515 for a total of 1,515.
The money I raise will be donated to Project Fierce, a non profit here in Chicago that is a grassroots response to the issue of LGBTQ youth homelessness. The organization works to provide transitional housing for LGBTQIA+ youths in a way that best meets their needs.
I think this is such an awesome cause, and I hope that everyone reading decides to donate whatever they can. Every penny counts!
