Over the past 21 years, the Pride and Remembrance Run has raised over $1,000,000 for LGBT organizations in Toronto. Proceeds from this year’s PRIDE RUN  benefit the AIDS committee of Toronto (ACT), the Rainbow Railroad, and The 519.

Beneficiaries announced for the 21st annual Pride and Remembrance Run


Toronto, Ontario (February 16, 2016) — The Pride and Remembrance Association is proud to announce the following four organizations as beneficiaries of Toronto’s 21st Pride and Remembrance Run: The 519, AIDS Committee of Toronto (ACT), Rainbow Railroad and the Pride and Remembrance Foundation.

The Pride and Remembrance Run is an annual tradition promoting and fostering community spirit, goodwill, volunteerism and sportsmanship in the LGBTQ+ community. The annual five-kilometer run/ three-kilometer walk will be on Saturday, July 2, 2016.

The run coincides with Toronto Pride, which is devoted to the celebration and support of Toronto’s diverse LGBTQ+ community. It is also the largest running event of its kind in Canada and considered to be the most fun run of the summer.

Over the past 20 years, the Pride and Remembrance Association has raised over $1.1 million for local charities that support the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQ+) community.

The 2016 Pride and Remembrance Run beneficiaries are:

ACT ’s Positive Youth Outreach Program (PYO )

ACT’s Positive Youth Outreach Program supports young people between the ages 16–29 who are living with or at increased risk for HIV. PYO supports participants in obtaining a happier, healthier life where they are engaged and active in their communities.

The 519’s “Not Alone…” Program

The 519’s “Not Alone – A Collective Response to Sexual Violence Within LGBTQ Communities” program will build trauma-informed services through a series of targeted support interventions for LGBTQ survivors of sexual violence.

 Rainbow Railroad

Rainbow Railroad’s ongoing efforts provide financial assistance, information and other resources to enable at risk LGBT individuals to travel to safer countries where they can seek asylum. Proceeds from the year’s Run will directly help five asylum seekers find freedom from persecution.

 Pride and Remembrance Foundation

The Pride and Remembrance Foundation is the charitable foundation responsible for the distribution of funds raised by the annual Pride and Remembrance Run. The Foundation’s mandate is to provide financial support to registered charities that benefit the LGBT community. The Foundation accepts applications for financial assistance from registered charities throughout the year.  More information can be found at:
