SUPPORT CASA RUBY

Pull for Pride D.C. will benefit Casa Ruby, the only Bilingual Multicultural LGBT Organization providing life saving services and programs to the most vulnerable in the LGBT community.  Casa Ruby's mission is to create successful life stories among Transgender, Gender Queer  and Gender Non-conforming Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual people.

Their vision is to create a world where Transgender, Gender Queer, and Gender Non-conforming people pursue their dreams and achieve success in their lives without fear of discrimination, harassment, or violence due to their sexual orientation and or Gender Identity/Gender Expression.

"We Are Everyone's Home."

 At the event, up to 50 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 D.C.

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.
