We are gearing up for Run/Walk with Pride on Sunday, June 4th at Seward Park again this year! Race time is set to start at 9AM and registration is now up and running for everyone to sign up for the event.
Our committee members are incredibly honored to have named Ingersoll Gender Center the beneficiary this year! As an organization we increasingly want to show visibility to all members of our community and believe that support and education for transgender, trans*, gender variant and genderqueer people is incredibly important now more than ever.
Ingersoll was founded in 1977 and has supported the trans and gender nonconforming communities in Seattle for the past four decades. They have been involved in almost every LGBTQ and trans specific policy work over the last forty years. In addition to advocating for trans rights, Ingersoll has hosted peer led trans and gender nonconforming support groups every week for the past forty years. Ingersoll also founded the Seattle Trans Economic Empowerment Project (STEEP) to help trans folks navigate the difficulties of finding employment.
We truly hope that you will be able to join us in helping to contribute to charity, while also having a great time!
*Early bird prices end on Wednesday, May 10th at midnight.
*Register by Wednesday, May 24th to reserve a tech shirt. All participants registering after this date will receive cotton shirts. Please note that registering for the race does not guarantee a shirt.
Run and Walk With Pride is an annual community event open to all, presented by Seattle Frontrunners, an LGBT running club, aimed to give visibility to the club and the incredible diversity of our members.
Since its beginning in 1983 the mission of RWWP has been to provide an event in which gay athletes could compete, while also serving as a fundraiser for local LGBT non-profit organizations. Over the past thirty-four years RWWP has raised and donated over 100K to different organizations doing spectacular work in WA.
We are very proud to be able to give back to the community. But we are even prouder of the people who share in the belief that we all deserve to actively pursue happy and healthy lives. 2017 marks our 34th year in celebrating camaraderie of this kind and we truly hope that you will take part in joining us next year as we march forward.
