Richmond’s Pull for Pride will on June 15th at Triple Crossing, a brewery in the East End of Richmond. All proceeds from the event will be donated to Diversity Richmond and Side by Side, two local organizations which support the LGBTQIA+ community.
I heard about Pull for Pride last year, but unforunately I was out of town and couldn't participate or check it out. I am really excited to be a part of it this year!
I have been powerlifting for approximately 3 years, and this will be my first powerlifting meet. The suggestion is to raise $1 for every lb you will plan to lift at Pull for Pride. My current deadlifting best attempt is 250lbs. Since the event is in June, I'm challenging myself to be able to lift 300lbs by the event. So this goal is twofold!
All proceeds from the event will be donated to Diversity Richmond and Side by Side, two local organizations which support the LGBTQIA+ community. Diversity Richmond serves as Central Virginia’s LGBTQ+ community center, providing social events, free meeting spaces, financial support and other resources for the community. Side by Side serves as Central Virginia’s LGBTQ+ youth organization, providing support groups, counseling, and services. Together, along with other community partners, these organizations coordinate hotel stays, clothing, food, and other resources for those most in need in the LGBTQ+ community.
