Visit the event page on Facebook and let folks know you’re Striding for Pride! And don’t forget the Costume Contest! Post your pix on Facebook. We’ll identify three finalists and the crowd will choose the winner at Strides!

Virtual Fundraising – no sweaty brow required – is in full swing! You’ll be able to check out the fundraising captains competing for the top spot or you can create your own Virtual Running Team. Do you remember seeing those cool rainbow capes at Strides 2018? When you raise $250 or more in celebration of JASMYN’s 25th Anniversary, you’ll be named a “Sterling Strider” and get a rainbow cape for the run/walk! Let the games begin!
