Join The Trevor Project For Our 52 Mile Pride Ride Challenge

BY: Trevor News
52 Mile Pride Ride

For LGBTQ+ young people, having an affirming community makes all the difference. Community is wherever you feel connected — that’s when we’re strongest. That’s the power of us. Our Trevor community shows up for each other, even in the face of incredible challenges. That’s why we’re excited to invite you to join another virtual fundraising challenge this Pride — so we can continue to show up for LGBTQ+ young people.

We’re asking our community to commit to logging 52 miles — however it feels best to move — all in effort of supporting our mission to end suicide among LGBTQ+ young people. You’ll also engage with the community on our Pride Ride Facebook group, celebrating each other’s wins and everything that makes the LGBTQ+ and allied community so powerful. Last year, our 51 Mile Pride Ride raised over $1.6 million, with over 30,000 supporters joining. Let’s keep that energy going this year!

Follow these simple steps to join our 52 Mile Pride Ride:

  • 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.

This year, Pride couldn’t be a more important celebration. In the face of rising anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, The Trevor Project remains here for LGBTQ+ young people through free, confidential 24/7 suicide prevention and crisis services, ongoing public education, advocacy, and research initiatives. Your support powers that work and powers our community to continue defending LGBTQ+ young people today and tomorrow.

And holidays approaching reminds many LGBTQ+ young people of places they cannot be themselves. We deeply wish for every LGBTQ+ young person to have at least one person they can rely on for support (which is why we’re here 24/7) because we know…
