You are invited to join U of T as we participate in the 19th annual Pride and Remembrance Run on Saturday June 28, 2014 at 10a.m. as a part of this year’s World Pride celebrations.
Last year, the U of T Pride Avengers team was represented by 31 members of the U of T community, consisting of students, staff, faculty, alumni friends and family. The team successfully raised a total of $5,899.99, landing the University of Toronto in 3rd place for the Top Fundraising Team!
The Pride and Remembrance Run is one of the largest fundraising events for local community organizations during Pride. This year’s beneficiaries are:
- Egale Canada Human Rights Trust, Canada’s only national charity promotion lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans human rights through research, education and community engagement;
- Fife House, which provides secure and affordable supportive housing and support services for people living with HIV/AIDS; and
- The Pride and Remembrance Foundation, whose mandate is to provide financial support to registered charities that benefit the LGBT community.
Please consider joining our team or offering financial support to help us to make an important fundraising contribution to Toronto’s LGBTQ communities.
