Invitation for the LGBT+ community, their families and allies to get together (virtually) and get marching for a great cause!
Stride with Pride is a virtual walking incentive that aims to connect community members and their families through activity. Participants will join others in their team in completing the distance from Dublin to Cork to raise funds for LINC’s counselling service. Participants will connect safely through a Facebook page with prizes for the distance completed in the quickest time. The maximum amount of time for teams to complete the distance is 3 weeks. That would give an individual from a team of 5 a daily distance of just under 2.5k or a weekly distance of just over 16k but teams can decide how the distance is distributed i.e. one team member may have more time to get more of the distance done. We will be working with 6 teams in total (each assigned colour to make up the colour of the rainbow flag) and we ask that the participants take their colours with them on some of their walks and take pictures. To really get great momentum behind this event we’re looking for a minimum of 30 people to sign up and all of the fundraising will be done through Facebook so teams are simply asked to share the event as opposed to being sponsored or raising money individually. The time limit for walking and raising funds will bring us right up to Cork Pride where we’ll all be a little fitter and a little more festive in time for the celebrations. The walking will commence on Friday the 28th of August and end on Friday the 18th of September.
