The 5th Run for Rocky 2017, held on April 9, 2017, will be the FINALE R4R Run/Walk. In the four years that Windsor Pride - Run for Rocky has been held in Windsor, Ontario, the funds raised have totalled $269,442.14. In partnership with the Greater Essex County District School Board, the Windsor Essex Catholic District School Board, St. Clair College of Applied Arts and Technology, and the University of Windsor, these funds have raised the profile of Gay-Straight Alliances in the Windsor-Essex County region and has assured that LGBTQ students are supported within their school communities. In addition, this funding has helped initiate education programs for parents of LGBTQ youth, educators, and students alike. Paramount is the continuing support of GSA student leadership development and mentorship programming, anti-bullying programs, youth mental health issues, and LGBTQ support.
As a family we feel strongly that the Run for Rocky has helped to make great change in the acceptance of LGBTQ diversity in our community. Our city, schools, homes and workplaces have become more accepting and open places. Now, there are greater support and services for those who are LGBTQ and live and work here. We understand how important this support is to businesses, families and educators in our community. The difference Run for Rocky has made now allows for the LGBTQ community to run with the torch and to continue the advocacy work with a stronger voice than this community has had in the past. Run for Rocky funding will continue for years to come to reinforce these efforts and ensure both students and educators are supported in our community.
Support the FINALE Run for Rocky and be part of the funding for this legacy in our community for many years to come.
