True Colors' Annual 5k: Save the Date!

True Colors wants to know: what are your favorite health-oriented activities? The True Colors Annual 5k Fundraiser is coming up on May 6th, 2012 - a perfect opportunity to show your support for our organization while working on your own personal fitness. The True Colors Annual 5k not only assists our continual outreach to LGBTQ youth, but helps support healthy lifestyles.


Make sure your Gay-Straight Alliance is up-to-date on our 5k! We encourage Gay-Straight Alliances and advisors to come to Wickham Park in Manchester on May 6th, where participants can run (or walk!) in the race, cheerlead from the sidelines, and, as always, socialize with GSA friends. Bring your LGBT pride, a "can-do" attitude, your most fabulous costumes, and get ready to support True Colors and your GSA this spring!
