Love Runs the Region 5K is a race celebrating the local LGBTQ+ community and the supporting communities. This race will be all about celebrating who we are together! This race will be held at the Lake County Fairgrounds and meet at Shelter 2 (The one next to the playground.) The race will begin at 6 PM and depending on how many people signup, we will split groups to safely proceed with the race. There will be an awards ceremony after the race. You can sign up at https://runsignup.com/Race/IN/CrownPoint/LoveRunstheRegion5K
The price to run will be $30 and will go to 3 great causes. LGBTQ Northwest Indiana and PFLAG Crown Point are both nonprofit organizations who work to promote the LGBTQ+ community viability, acceptance and equality. The other part of the money will go to my club, The Alliance, at Crown Point High School. I founded The Alliance as a safe, unifying space for all students. If you have any questions, you can email me.
We hope to see you there!
