The Zebra Coalition® is a network of organizations which provide services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and all youth (LGBT+) ages 13 – 24. The Coalition assists young people facing homelessness; bullying; physical, sexual and drug abuse; and isolation from their families with individualized programs to guide them to recovery and stability

The Rainbow Run Virtual 5k & 1 Mile Walk is back this year as well so everyone who can't travel to Florida can still participate and donate! We will even send you a T-Shirt if you register by March 1st!

Come give back to the community and support LGBTQ equality, counseling and mental health awareness!!

We have great t-shirts and all finishers of the on-site and virtual 5k also receive awesome medals made by Ashworth Awards (the same company who makes medals for the Boston Marathon!).

The Rainbow Run has the most diverse race categories including: Men, Women, Androgynous/Transgender, & Differently-Abled (Note: although Active.com does not allow one to register as androgynous, transgender or differently-abled you will be able to check in at packet pickup under any category).
