SUPPORT LOST N FOUND YOUTH ATLANTA

Pull for Pride Atlanta will benefit Lost N Found Youth, a non-profit dedicated to ending homelessness for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, queer (LGBTQ+) and all sexual minority youth. 

Lost N Found Youth Atlanta's primary services include: 24/7 phone, texts, and email response • Emergency and transitional housing • Emergency clothing and food for youth on the street • Mental health evaluations and counseling • Referrals to HIV/STD testing, health and dental services • Assistance for lost or stolen birth certificates, driver’s licenses or state ID cards • Referrals to GED training/testing and other education resources • Resume writing/editing and interview skills training

At the event, over 60 lifter-fundraisers will take turns deadlifting progressively higher weights, aiming to match dollar for pound to help lift up these often-unnoticed homeless youth. The deadlift, for the uninitiated, involves stepping up behind a loaded barbell, grasping the bar, standing up with the weight, and setting it back down on the ground. It is a simple lift that is imbued with meaning: coming forward to face a challenge, and succeeding through the simple mechanism of one’s own strength.

PULL FOR PRIDE ATLANTA

STRENGTH FOR ALL!

Who Can Participate?

ALL ARE WELCOME.

This event is open to all people (trans and cis, intersex, agender, non-binary, women, men) and experience levels. There will be no weight classes and flights will not be determined by gender. Competitors will be placed in flights determined by first attempts. 

What Should I Wear?

NO SINGLET, NO PROBLEM.

Just make sure your shins are covered and you're wearing safe footwear! From there, you can express yourself however you choose. Feel free to show up in a full superhero costume, or jeans and a t-shirt. We've seen unicorn costumes, tutus, rainbow unitards, and more!

AM I REQUIRED TO FUNDRAISE?

THIS IS AN ACTIVE FUNDRAISER.

All registrants are expected to fundraise, if it is in their means! We will guide you, so the process is simple, easy, and effective.
