Strides For Pride

Strides for Prides LGBTQ+ youth | Covenant House

All together now: “Love is Love move with the Cov”! Strides for Pride is back June 24-30, 2024.

What is Strides for Pride? 

Participants will log 40 minutes of activity per day — running, walking, biking, whatever gets you moving — and work to raise $120 or more in support of LGBTQ+ youth overcoming homelessness at Covenant House. 

Join the challenge - register for Strides for Pride today!

Why 40 Minutes of activity?

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 Strides for Pride help support LGBTQ+ youth?

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 so much more to unhoused youth.
