Corporate sponsorships and individual contributions are always welcome!
Last year, Syracuse hosted our third annual CNY Gay 5k. The race was a huge success with almost 300 participants. With the money from registrations, corporate sponsorship and individual donations, we proudly donated $6,000 to local LGBT non-profits. We are pleased to provide a family-friendly health-focused event during Pride Month.
The event will be held at Long Branch Park on Saturday, June 15th. Advertisements proudly featuring our corporate sponsors will be spread across CNY, and we would love to have your support in growing this event.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event will be used to support the LGBT community here in Central New York. This year’s proceeds will be donated to SAGE Upstate. SAGE Upstate promotes the health and wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Central New York as they age. SAGE Upstate serves seven counties including Cortland, Jefferson, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, and Oswego counties. LGBT older adults are more likely to have less support from biological families. LGBT older adults are also less likely to reach out to social service agencies out of fear of discrimination. SAGE Upstate helps to promote the formation of support networks and create linkages between social services agencies and LGBT older adults. The funds raised will be used for continued community support through health presentations, fitness classes, support networks and social events.
If you are unable to sponsor this year, please still consider participating by signing up for the race, putting together a team of volunteers from your company, or just coming by to cheer!
