Set the record, upped the pledge and kicked in an extra $460. Pounds are expensive!
Hey y'all! Since this will be my last USAPL meet (well unless they get their act together), I'm raising money to assuage my guilt as part of the share the platform team! I'm raising my kilo total in dollars, but if I hit that Oregon state bench record, I'm kicking in the extra dollars to make my donation in pounds! That's $924! If you have guilt you would like to assuage as well, please contribute!

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.
*USA Powerlifting athletes are strongly encouraged to participate!
