Vancouver Frontrunners created this special event, many years ago, as a means to try and raise money to give back to the community that has given us so much. Over the years we’ve donated to many different charities totalling around the $100,000 mark to date. Every year we strive to raise and donate more than last and we hope 2018 will be no exception. 100% of our profits go directly to charity, but we know we can do better. You can choose to donate money during the registration process and if that’s not enough, why not seek pledges from family and friends?

How Do I Raise Money?

Easy! Once you have registered on our Race Roster site, go back to the home page and select ‘Pledge a Participant‘. Search for your own name and select the blue ‘Pledge’ button. Once you’re at the ‘Make a donation’ screen, make a copy of the URL in your browser. This is where you want to send your friends, family, share on Facebook, Tweet and email. All the money raised using this link will be attributed to your name which we will use to determine who has raised the most amount of money.

Where Does The Money Go?

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.

 

LOUD Business, through its charitable arm, 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.
