Sponsor a Runner

Statistically, LBGTQ+ kids are at a much higher risk for poor mental health and suicide due to the fear of acceptance, rejection and harassment that comes from an unsupportive environment. Help us ensure that there are no barriers for these kids to participate with a donation to cover a young racer’s registration.


Runners Fee Waiver

A limited number of waivers are available on a first come, first served basis to Lawrence County teens who identity as a member of the LGBTQ+ community and do not have the resources to register for the race.  Teen advocates of the LGBTQ+ community may also apply, particularly if they are participating to support a LGBTQ+ peer.


Thank you to our event Sponsors
