“Come out” on Sunday, Sept 27 and show support for Denver’s LGBTQ+ youth at Denver’s SIXTH annual Running of the Gays!
Get yer heels (and ankles!) ready to roll… or strut, or hop, or stumble in a 3-block “marathon” in heels to fund creative programs for LGBTQ+ youth in our community. The event is organized by Denver’s LGBTQIA* community and Art from Ashes. Each year runners are asked to raise money through sponsorships to trot 3 blocks down 17th Avenue in heels, starting at Steuben’s Food Service and ACE Eat Serve.
Every year AfA, the queer community and allies run a 3-block marathon in heels to help fund creative empowerment workshops for the LGBTQ+ youth in our community. Runners register with a $35 donation ($25 before August 31st), and sponsors include Steuben’s, Medical Massage International, Mental Health Center of Denver, Fleur Salon, Divino Wine & Spirits, Marte Reps of RE/MAX Professionals Denver, Casey Shea of Live Urban Real Estate, Dwell Denver Real Estate, and X Bar.
RUNNERS REGISTER HERE!
Runners seek sponsorships from friends and family to raise money for the youth programs. The fee entitles runners to an ROTG t-shirt, a goodie bag, a free Mimosa courtesy of Steuben’s, and foot massage!
