Kicking off the list of festivities lined up by Niagara Pride is the WNY Pride 5K Fun Run/Walk. We are encouraging participants to run, walk, strut, or sashay across the finish line! This fun run/walk event is open to all!  This year, we are thrilled to have The Buffalo Sabres Foundation, The Buffalo Bills, and The John Fiore Foundation as sponsors of the event. Additionally, Wegmans will be donating foods for participants.  As a special treat, this year’s WNY Pride 5k will have local drag legend, Blair Michaels, performing and music provided by WNY’s only LGBTQ+ radio station, Energy Radio.

Local LGBTQ+ agencies will also be on hand to share Information about services they offer in the WNY community.

The proceeds from the WNY Pride 5K will benefit Niagara Pride, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, to help fund the expansion of LGBTQ+ community-based programs and services the agency offers in Niagara County as well as throughout WNY, including additional community outreach, groups and programs for youth and senior LGBTQ+ individuals, and increasing our health awareness initiatives.

See you at the WNY Pride 5K!
