Raise Money, Be Rewarded!
Pride Run & Walk was created by the Vancouver Frontrunners as a means to raise money to give back to the community. Since the event’s inception, we have raised over $80,000 for several different charities and this year we’re looking to you to help us raise even more and your efforts will surely be rewarded! We have some amazing items that will go out to our top 3 fundraisers which will be announced on the morning of July 22nd as well as bi-weekly hand outs for those who are making strides with their fundraising efforts.
Our fundraising goal for 2017 is a staggering $20,000 and we need your help. In addition to the funds raised by you, 100% of the profits go directly back into the community. Funds pledged and donated by you and your friends can go to either or both of the following organizations, while both will receive 50% of our profits.
What’s Up For Grabs?

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.
A little tip: Why not pal up with a friend or loved one and double your chances at winning? If you and another send all of your friends to the one link, you could significantly increase your odds at raising the most. Just an idea!
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.
, 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.
