On Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017 the Palm Springs Front Runners and Walkers President, Mike Spencer presented a check for $16,110 to Mike Thompson, Chief Executive Officer for the LGBT Center of the Desert. The Center was the 2017 Pride Run and Walk beneficiary.
The amount was the proceeds from our recent Pride Run and Walk 5k event held on Nov. 4 th after race expenses were paid. The large donation was the direct result of the generosity of our club members through their continued support of the Pride Run. No club funds are used to produce the Pride Run and Walk each year.
The Center provides a safe and supportive environment for members to enjoy health, wellness,
educational and social programs, where people of all ages and backgrounds are welcome. The Center advances its mission through senior programming, a clinical counseling and program, a weekly food bank, extensive social and recreational offerings, a free community cyber center, a growing volunteer program, and periodic special events in the community. It offers an all-inclusive environment.
