The Trevor Project is excited to host our first-ever virtual 50 Mile Challenge! Join us this April by committing to walk/run 50 miles over the month and help us raise funds that will support our mission: to end suicide among LGBTQ young people.
Because you are here for Trevor, we can be there for every single LGBTQ young person who needs help. As part of this community of care, you’re playing an active role in creating a more inclusive, safe world for all LGBTQ individuals.
Follow these simple steps to join our 50 Mile Challenge:
- Register in Facebook Messenger now to log your miles all month. Choose to create a team or participate solo!
- Follow this link and we’ll automatically create a fundraiser with all the right settings on your behalf. You can edit the details on Facebook upon creation!
The money raised will help The Trevor Project’s goal to provide free, confidential, 24/7 suicide prevention and mental health services to LGBTQ young people. These services, along with Trevor’s public education, peer support, research, and advocacy work, create a better and more welcoming world — one where LGBTQ young people can envision bright futures for themselves.
Thank you so much for your interest in this challenge and being here for all LGBTQ young people!
