SUPPORT HOMELESS YOUTH IN THE TWIN CITIES

Pull for Pride Minneapolis will benefit Avenues for Homeless Youth, a non-profit dedicated to providing housing, basic needs, and supportive services to help homeless youth. Avenues is also one of the few Home Host programs available for LGBTQ homeless youth. Homeless adolescents and young adults, who number roughly 6,000 in Minnesota on a given day, are so often a segment of our population that feels powerless in the face of trauma and abuse.

 

 

At the event up to 45 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 MINNEAPOLIS

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.
