Run for Rocky The RETURN
Run for Rocky-The RETURN 5 km Run/ 2 km Walk
After a 5 year hiatus the Run for Rocky Legacy Project has partnered with Windsor-Essex Pride Fest to host the Run for Rocky Event on Pride Fest weekend. The 5 km Run/3 km Walk will take place on Saturday August 6th beginning at 10 am at Dieppe Gardens. Complimentary shuttles will take participants to Lanspeary Park where the Run for Rocky After Party will begin at 11:30 am featuring the local band “Leave Those Kids Alone” as well as winner and total funds raised announcements. The shuttles will will go back and forth from Dieppe Gardens to Lanspeary Park to accommodate participants travel between the two sites as needed
The legacy of the money raised through the initial 5 years of the Run for Rocky event which took place from 2013-2017 has created a one of a kind funding model in Canada which supports Gay Straight Alliance Clubs in the Windsor Essex County region in high schools and post secondary school institutes.
The RETURN of the Run for Rocky Run/Walk will continue to fund local GSA funding and will additionally support Windsor’s LGBTQ+ agencies. A portion of the funds raised through this year’s R4R event will also be donated to the Windsor Pride Community, Windsor-Essex Pride Fest and Trans Wellness Windsor. The cohesive effort of all of these agencies working together ensures that our LGBTQ+ community and their families in this region are supported by strong services that meet the needs of the community.
Prizes will be awarded for the highest top three individual fundraisers and a unique Run for Rocky Pride Trophy will be awarded to the Team who raises the most funds. This coveted trophy will be held in possession of the winning team for one year and will have their team name/winning year inscribed on the trophy.
