So, I like to lift. I feel powerful when I pick up something heavy, and put it back down. I think that all of us should be able to feel that power, that autonomy, that respect (even if picking up things and putting them back down isn't your jam).
I want to raise at least $1 for every pound I lift, and I will open around 275-285 pounds. All funds will go to Equality Florida, a civil rights organization dedicated to securing full equality for Florida’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community. (Learn more: www.eqfl.org).
Given how fun these lifting events are, perhaps I'll clear the 300 club, which is a goal for 2019. Even better if I can clear the 300 club in a totally inclusive event, wearing a tutu.
