VFR Presents Some Fabulous Cheques To Well Deserving Organizations

Wednesday evening, October 7th, Vancouver Frontrunners were delighted to present two fabulous cheques to ‘Out In Schools’ and the ‘LOUD Foundation’.

The donations are a direct result of the profits made from this year’s Pride Run & Walk. Profits raised from entry fees amounted to $11,668.30, which will be split between the two organizations 50/50. On our registration site was the ability for donors to give directly to Out In School’s and this garnered a further $2,414.39, totaling $14,802.69.

Below are photo’s from the evening.

Out In Schools
Out in Schools brings films into classrooms to engage youth through film in the promotion of safer and more inclusive learning environments, free from homophobia, transphobia and bullying. Out in Schools works with school boards, educators, community organizations and student-run Gay Straight Alliances to reduce isolation, foster belonging and increase the safety of learning environments for all youth in our communities.

Loud Foundation
The LOUD Foundation invests in future leaders of the Canadian LGBTQ community. They believe that by supporting the development of students who possess drive, vision, compassion and knowledge, they can improve society and increase awareness of our diverse community. The  20 under 20 program recognizes 20 BC youth under the age of 20 for creating safe spaces and promoting LGBTQ2+ inclusion and rights in their communities.

We couldn’t be happier with what we have acheived and it’s humbling to know that funds are going to two very deserving organizations that do a lot of work for our community.
