10th Annual Run/Walk for Equality

June 2 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

On March 10, 2013, local Davis resident Lawrence “Mikey” Partida was the victim of a violent hate-crime, targeted for his sexuality. An avid long-distance runner, Mikey relied on his love for running to help get him through the months of physical therapy and rehabilitation that were required after his assault, and back to his life.  As a result, the Run/Walk for Equality was created as a way to honor and commemorate the experiences of those whose lives have been forever changed by bigotry and intolerance. Registration fees apply.

The Davis Phoenix Coalition board of directors and the Davis Pride planning committee invites runners and walkers alike to help raise awareness about the ongoing efforts needed by communities to prevent hate-motivated crimes.  Participation in the fifth annual Run/Walk for Equality will help to build a safer and more inclusive community in the city of Davis and surrounding communities.

1-Mile & 5K Run/Walk – $25 until May 28th, $30. Thereafter – does not include T-shirt. Option for purchase available during registration process. Everyone receives a rainbow headband!
