The Palm Springs Pride Run and Walk is a 5K course through the beautiful and historic neighborhood of Old Las Palmas in sunny Palm Springs, California. The race is organized by Palm Springs Front Runners and Walkers, a local chapter of International Front Runners, an informal network of LGBT running groups around the world.
Proceeds from the Palm Springs Pride Run and Walk benefit The LGBT Community Center of The Desert ("The Center") and Safe Schools Desert Cities. The Center is a thriving, community-based organization that provides vital services to its members, including mental health and wellness clinics, a community food bank, senior programming, and youth suicide prevention and anti-bullying programs. Safe Schools Desert Cities empowers local LGBTQ youth, their allies and Gay Student Alliance (GSA) advisors, and provides opportunities for community and individual growth through education, advocacy, recreational activities and opportunities for self-expression.
The Palm Springs Pride Run and Walk 5K is part of a weekend of activities celebrating Greater Palm Springs Pride! A portion of your registration helps keep Coachella Valley's longest-running LGBT parade and festival in downtown Palm Springs, and FREE for all to attend.
