2013 Pride Run Beneficiary: The Ali Forney Center
Since 2009, FRNY has chosen a beneficiary each year to support with a substantial portion of the proceeds from the Pride Run. This year’s beneficiary is The Ali Forney Center, the nation’s largest and most comprehensive shelter and services provider. The Ali Forney Center offers a culturally competent approach to helping homeless LGBT youth reclaim their lives with emergency and transitional housing opportunities, medical and mental health services, and access to meals, showers and clothing.
The Front Runners New York LGBT Pride Run is one of the largest LGBT sporting events in the world, bringing together more than 5,000 runners and thousands of fans from across the country for this 5-mile race in Central Park. This year marked the 32nd year of this official NYC Pride Weekend event, which is organized in collaboration with New York Road Runners. The Pride Run is also an official qualifier for the ING New York City Marathon and offers a friendly and inclusive atmosphere, stiff competition, the best finisher food of any race (rainbow Popsicles) and a banging after-party at Boxers NYC Sports Bar.
