Are you looking to engage Toronto’s LGBTQ Community? The Pride and Remembrance Run offers opportunities to connect directly with Run’s anticipated 1750 participants, their social media networks, Run supporters, media and the Run’s own vibrant social media following.
The Pride and Remembrance Run, the largest of its kind in Canada. The event is a 5km run/3km walk. Participants have the option to raise funds to help local LGBTQ+ programming come to life. In 2015 we raised over $140,000, all of which went directly to the charities. Sponsorship revenue and registration fees cover the cost of presenting the Run.
The Pride & Remembrance Run has regularly been listed among the top running events in Toronto. It is considered by many to be the most “fun” run of the summer. The Run attracts a cross section of the community from runners seeking personal bests to walkers supporting the charities. Because the Run has sold out (with a waiting list!) over the last few years we’ve decided to increase the number of participants from 1500 to 1750 this year.
In 2015 Premier Kathleen Wynne kicked off the Pride and Remembrance Run, and has participated most years since our inception. Toronto Mayor John Tory has also joined us at different events.
In 2015, the Pride & Remembrance Run was featured on CP24, featured on BlogTO, CBC, 680 News and more. The Run even achieved “trending topic” status Canada-wide on Twitter during the event last year.
