The RAINBOW RUN is back!

Rainbow Pride of WV has partnered with Covenant House to bring this philanthropic 5K to the WV in  



You'll have the ENTIRE MONTH to participate in this VIRTUAL 5K and your level of participation is entirely up to you! 

Funds raised from the 2021 Rainbow Run will go to support the Rainbow Pride of WV Educational Scholarship program. The $1,000 scholarship is awarded to one of WV's LGBTQ+ or immediate family member who is currently enrolled in a post-secondary educational program (college, 2-year, 4-year, or trade school).  However, it is Rainbow Pride of WV's hope to not only fund the one yearly scholarship with what is raised from the event, but potentially expand the program offering several smaller one-time scholarship awards as well!


  • STEP 1:  Simply RUN, JOG, WALK, SKIP, OR SASHAY (OR...A METHOD OF YOUR CHOOSING) to go the distance you're able and willin' to go anytime during the month of June 2021. The goal is a full 5K, but it's also helping an LGBTQ+ student pursue their post-secondary education and the thought that counts, right?

  • STEP 2:  While you are doin' your thang, TAKE A SELFIE OR POST A VID TO INSTAGRAM OR FACEBOOK using the hashtags: #RainbowRun2021 and/or #KickSmokingsButt. BONUS: If you tag @rainbowpridewv and @coveanthousewv in your post, you're entered for a chance to win an awesome surPRIZE if selected for the MOST QUICKEST, MOST SLOWEST, MOST CREATIVE, MOST LOL, and MOST PRIDE!

  • STEP 3:  YOU'RE DONE! It's that simple. You just helped provide a scholarship to a lucky student, supported Covenant House's smoking cessation program, and maybe even got a lil' INSTA famous!
