Strides for Pride is back!
All together now: “Love is Love move with the Cov”! Strides for Pride is back June 23-30, 2023. Participants will log 40 minutes of activity per day — running, walking, biking, swimming or dancing — and working to raise $120 or more in support of LGBTQ+ youth overcoming homelessness at Covenant House.
Why 40 Minutes? Because 40% of all young people facing homelessness in the United States identify as LGBTQ+. In fact, LGBTQ+ youth are more than twice as likely to experience homelessness as their non-LGBTQ+ peers.
How does it help? As part of the challenge, we ask participants to set a goal of raising $120 for Covenant House, in honor of LGBTQ+ youth who are 120% more likely to experience homelessness than their non-LGBTQ+ peers.
The funds raised during Strides for Pride go directly to Covenant House, providing food, shelter, clothing, healthcare, education, legal aid, and loving care to youth facing homelessness.
