Part of what makes Pride Run & Walk a huge success, is the kindness and generosity of our sponsors. Every year we have some of the most amazing prizes and giveaways, along with sponsorship of some of the costs to put the event on. All this helps make our event amazing for our runners and walkers, and lets us get more money to our beneficiaries.
|For a few years now we have partnered with the Vancouver Pride Society (VPS) whose commitment, support and guidance has helped our event grow to the size it is. Immediately following Pride Run is the VPS’s ‘Pride Sports Day’ where LGBTQ2+ clubs from across Vancouver and the Lowe Mainland come together to showcase and demonstrate their offerings. Pride Sports Day also has interactions from some of the bigger names in the industry, like WhiteCaps and the Canucks. Second Beach Park is transformed into a field of activities for people of all ages and abilities along with a lineup of Food Trucks to keep you going and a Beer Garden to enjoy an adult beverage.
Pride Run & Walk together with Pride Sports Day is the perfect kick off to the Pride Season helping you get energized for everything that’s about the follow!
|Our friends at Forerunners on Main Street (and 22nd). Forerunners were extremely excited by Pride Run & Walk and will be helping us in so many ways, it’s hard to keep track. Supplying our event with package pickup location, advertising, seminars, runs to raise funds for charity, assistance with prizing and so much more.
We feel truly blessed to have their support and commitment to seeing the event grow bigger and better and it’s reassuring to have such experienced and knowledgeable staff to help us where and when we need it.
|CHARITY / BENEFICIARIES
|Out in Schools engage youth through film in the promotion of safer and more diverse learning environments, free from homophobia, transphobia and bullying.
These are serious issues facing today’s youth, particularly queer youth. By bringing queer films to local high schools to facilitate discussion on bullying, homophobia and stereotypes, they give youth a safer space to explore these issues.
|The LOUD Foundation Pride Youth Scholarship Fund raises money and invests in the future leaders of the Canadian LGBTQ community. They believe that by supporting the development of students who possess drive, vision, compassion and knowledge, we can improve society and increase awareness of our diverse community.
