IT'S THE MOST. WONDERFUL TIIIIMMMMMEEEEE. OF THE YEEEEAAARRRR.
I'm lucky to be involved with Pull for Pride (and Women's Strength Coalition) for the third year in a third city. I've been working with Matt Cronin out of Stoked Athletics since last summer because I wanted to be a smarter, stronger athlete. On top of all the appreciation he's given me for powerlifting, he has made me love deadlifts again. Stoked for Pride, you might say.
Since my move to Seattle last October, I've continued training in powerlifting and was amped when WSC announced we would be a host city. I jumped on the opportunity to volunteer, and again to raise money for the cause. Our Pull for Pride will benefit The Lambert House, a community center for LGBTQ youth in and around Seattle that provides a safe space and mentors for discussion, advocacy, events, and tools they need to succeed in life. It's located on Capitol Hill and we are so excited to be able to donate to their important work during Pride Month.
My fundraising goal for the event is $900. We're asked to raise a dollar per pound, and with three attempts to pull as much as possible, 900 pounds is a great goal for me to work toward.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story. I do hope you will consider donating to what is sure to be an awesome event. Stay tuned for training updates!
