DRYY RUN D.C. ADVOCATING FOR LGBTQ+ EQUALITY
We kicked-off PRIDE Month a couple weeks early on May 15th, for the inaugural DRYY RUN DC raising funds for the Human Rights Campaign. The Human Rights Campaign serves as America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer equality.
Chris Cardi partnered with title sponsor Dryy Garment Care to design the graphics and promotional material as well as the runner’s bibs that participants wore on the day of the event.
We had amazing weather for our fitness and philanthropy event with over 70 people taking part in the 5 & 10K. With the help of our community and co-sponsors we raised over $2.5K for the @humanrightscampaign in support and advocacy for our LGBTQ+ family.
BIG UP to our fellow co-sponsors The Village Cafe, Cool Kids Vinyl, Gift Shop, Common Threads, Hill Prince Bar, and community organizer Erica Jackson for leveraging their platforms to get the word out and getting folks involved.
PEACE & LOVE to all those that participated. What an incredible turnout, good time, and a great way to continue the push for equality.
