Excitement Building for PERSAD 5K Run & Fun Walk

It's not too late to Run, Walk or Pledge support

The PERSAD 5K Run & Fun Walk is getting closer and it's not too late to get involved. Our 5K is fun for both serious runners and casual walkers, with 2 races that will match your personal style.  

UPDATE: On-line registration is closed, but you can sign up in person between 8:00 - 9:00 AM this Sunday at North Park. See you there!

Get Your 5K Racing Shirt While Supplies Last!

Speaking of style, register now to reserve your very own long-sleeve 5K racing shirt. These shirts were a big hit last year, so don't miss out. And remember that everyone who registers to participate OR pledges support to a participant is helping LGBTQ youth. Our 5K benefits youth programs at PERSAD that work to eliminate bullying in schools and help kids at risk for suicide. It's a fun-filled day with a serious mission.

DId We Mention Prizes?

We've got Penguins and Steelers tickets to give to the top fundraisers. So make sure to ask your friends, family and colleagues to pledge their support for your efforts in the race. We're aiming to raise $20,000 and every bit helps!

Click the links below to register or pledge support to any one of our participants. (HINT: If you want to pledge support but can't decide who to support, just search for "Team Persad". Every pledge helps us reach the goal). THANK YOU!
