Running of the Gays!

October 29 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

The 8th annual Art from Ashes Gay-la is coming Sunday, October 29, 2017!

The Running of the Gays is a 3-block “marathon” in heels to fund creative programs for queer youth.

Join Denver’s LGBTQIA community as we run toward a better future for youth! The 8th annual Denver Running of the Gays will support Art from Ashes creative programs to help queer youth recognize their creative genius and personal resiliency through artistic expression.

Runners are asked to raise money through sponsorships to run 3 blocks down 17th Avenue in heels! Art from Ashes supplies free boas and “I brought the gay” t-shirts for any registered runner and special prizes to those who raise $250 or more in sponsorships (everything is free to all participating youth); runners supply the heels; X Bar and Steuben’s supply the brunch and drink specials; and local businesses supply the prizes.
