Pull for Pride - with The Movement Minneapolis

On Saturday, June 24, The Movement Minneapolis will host a unique fundraiser — a deadlift-only “test of strength” to raise money and build awareness for the Twin Cities' homeless youth. Cheekily titled “Pull for Pride,” this active, inclusive, festive event will kick off Pride Weekend and highlight the power of a community’s strength.

Co-hosted by Women's Strength Coalition, the event will benefit Avenues for Homeless Youth, a non-profit dedicated to provide housing, basic needs, and supportive services to help homeless youth, a segment of our population that often feels powerless in the face of trauma and abuse. Avenues is one of the few Home Host programs available for LGBTQ homeless youth. This event is open to all people (trans and cis, intersex, agender, non-binary, women, men) and experience levels. 

“Pull for Pride Minneapolis” will feature 50+ lifters, as well as food and beverages, raffle prizes, music, and other shenanigans! Family- and pet-friendly. Come to cheer and experience an event you’ve never seen before.
