We rise by lifting others with us. I believe in a fair, accessible platform for lifters of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, strength levels, and genders.
I believe that a barbell in every hand makes us all stronger, and barriers to that accessibility are fear-based and not what I stand for.
My goal is $1/kg that I hope to lift at Nationals on October 17. In addition, I will match whatever donations are made towards my campaign to raise $1/lb that I lift.
I hope you'll contribute even a little to this cause to bring awareness to disadvantaged and discriminated non-binary, transgender, and intersex athletes.

Participating lifters will be raising awareness and raising funds during September and October by pledging an amount of money per pound lifted of their anticipated total at ANY meet or max out session that occurs from October 16th to October 21st. (ex: 1$/pound with a Squat-Bench-Deadlift total of 900 lbs would be a pledge of 900$!)
Funds raised will go towards helping trans, nonbinary, gender nonconforming, and intersex athletes participate in strength sports through direct support and advocacy.
