- 1 2 3 4 5 Our events offer the chance to express power and strength, while enacting change and advocating for issues that deserve exposure and discussion. All WSC competitions take place in a supportive and fun community environment, and are inclusive and identity-affirming. Lift for Planned Parenthood, April 2017 Our first event raised over $14,000 for Planned Parenthood. LFPP offered lifters and supporters a chance to express their strength, while enacting change and advocating for women’s rights. “I have wanted to take action for a while, but I felt helpless and I didn’t know how,” wrote one LFPP lifter, a first time competitor in the sport of powerlifting, “The concept of putting myself out there and doing what I love while supporting an important cause really resonated with me.” The event resonated with others as well, and registrations sold out in just six days. “Absolutely incredible! The meet was well-run and efficient, the environment was incredibly supportive and super welcoming for first-time competitors. I loved every minute of it, and would 110% participate in another WSC event!” -Alexandra 1 2 3 4 5 Pull for Pride Nationwide, June 2017 1 2…Events
