PERSAD CENTER would like to thank everyone who joined us on Sunday, November 10 at the North Park Boathouse for the second annual 5K Run & Fun Walk.

About 150 runners and walkers stepped up on a cold morning to help PERSAD raise money for our LGBTQ youth programs. 

Congratulations to Team Boom Boom, the top fundraising team and to John Britt, the top fundrasing individual. Team Boom Boom wins 2 pairs of tickets to a Pittsburgh Steelers game and John walks away with a pair of Pittsburgh Penguins tickets with Lexus Club passes.
