The sun will be shining, the air will be fresh and People will be OUT. Join us on Sunday, May 20, 2018 for a brisk 5K/10K run/walk for the entire family through picturesque Davis’ renown greenbelts.

Best of all – every Run/Walk for Equality registration counts.  Your registration fDSC_0693ee and fundraising efforts help the Davis Phoenix Coalition sustain our education and advocacy programs, as well as assist with the funding and development of a resource center, to support the LGBTQ+ and ally residents of the city of Davis and surrounding areas.

The Davis Pride planning committee is excited to announce that we have once again partnered with ON YOUR MARK EVENTS to assist with the planning and execution of this years event.

Why the Run/Walk for Equality

On March 10, 2013, local Davis resident Lawrence “Mikey” Partida was the victim of a brutal 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.

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