The corner of Church and Wellesley

U of T will proudly hit the pavement again this year by participating in the Pride and Remembrance Run in support of local LGBTQ charitable organizations – we would love for you (and your colleagues, friends, and family) to join us!

Everyone is welcome!  By joining our team you’ll meet a great group of people, experience some Saturday morning Pride excitement, and get a great t-shirt, all while helping to fundraise for local LGBTQ+ charitable organizations. This year, that includes FifeHouse Transitional Housing Program, the Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity Gay-Straight Alliance Forums across Ontario, Casey House – Rebuilding Lives Day Health and Wellness Program, as well as the Pride and Remembrance Foundation. We have proudly been among the top fundraising teams over the past few years and strive to be once again this year!  You are welcome to participate in whatever way you like – fundraising is optional and everyone is welcome to join our team whether or not they plan to raise funds.

The 5km Run (or 3km walk) circles twice around Queens Park Crescent (once for the walkers) and then finishes back at the corner of Church and Wellesley streets.  Following the Run, there are snacks and a celebration at Barbara Hall Park next to The 519 Church Street Community Centre.

To join, visit our Team Page and click on the “Join the Team” button on the right side of the page.  Registration costs only $40 until April 30, so register early and save!  We want to make sure that everyone can participate in the Run – if the registration costs are a barrier, please email the Sexual & Gender Diversity Office at to find out about sponsorship options.

Can’t join us?  Please consider sponsoring the team to help us make an important contribution to Toronto’s LGBTQ communities.  Thank you very much for your support!
