On Saturday, June 16, at Vasen Brewery, Pull For Pride is raising funds for my employer, Diversity Richmond, as well as the wonderful youth services organization, Side By Side. Both organizations do incredible things for the LGBTQ communities in the city, as well as helping other minority-focused nonprofits in the city, too.
My goal is to pick up 300 lbs of COLD, HARD STEEL, which would be a wonderful new record for me! In the recent past I've been able to lift 295 lbs, which is a little heavier than former UFC Heavyweight Champion and current WWE Universal Champion, Brock Lesnar. So 300 pounds is a super nice round number, and a great and achievable goal for such a good cause.
I hope you will join me in raising money for this truly wonderful organization.
