The Vancouver Frontrunners, Canada's largest club devoting to providing a safe and friendly environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and their friends to enjoy running and walking. We run and walk as a group twice a week, every week of year and are one of the largest running and walking clubs in British Columbia.
I would like the entire PFLAG membership to the 8th Annual Vancouver Frontrunners Pride Run & Walk. This year's theme is Be fit, be fun, be yourself! which embodies our values of a healthy lifestyle while being proud of who you are. Come join us and kick off Pride Week at this 10 km run / 4 km walk in Stanley Park. ALL net proceeds will be going to Out in Schools (www.outinschools.com). This is a cause that is very close to us since many of us have suffered from bullying and homophobia in our youth and this our opportunity to give back and make a difference.
The event takes place on Saturday, July 28 @ 9 A.M. from Lumberman's Arch - Register as an individual for $40 or as a team of 5 for $150 ($30/person) at http://vancouverfrontrunners.org/events/2012/priderun.html. There are prizes for the top male and female finishers and for the largest, fastest, and best dressed teams! Come join Vancouver out and proud MLAs Spencer Chandra Herbert and Mable Elmore, Councillor Tim Stevenson, CBC's Kirk Williams, Mr. Gay Canada 2011 - Rob Goodard and others for the largest Pride Run & Walk ever and fight homophobia and anti-bullying.
President, Vancouver Frontrunners
PFLAG Canada announces a ‘Simply Fabulous’ way to help inspire change!
PFLAG Canada is busy assembling its new Family Recipe Cookbook, a collection of fabulous family recipes from all over Canada. Wayne Harrison, former Executive Director and co-founder of the Saint John NB Chapter, is spearheading the project and he needs your help!
Sharing Your Fabulousness. We are looking for your favourite tried and true recipes, the ones you use every day, on special occasions or during time shared with family and friends. We would also love to have the stories that go along with them, their history and their origins – even dinner table coming out stories!
Ready for the Holiday Season. The cookbook will be released in October in time for the 2012 Holiday Season - and we’re going paperless. This will be an e-book, available for download or on CD-ROM.
Feeding Community Spirit. We have a wonderful opportunity here to share our favourite recipes, our stories, and to help PFLAG Canada raise some much needed funds. So please, dust off your old books, dig out your old recipes and send them by July 31st to Wayne Harrison at 1633 Mountain Road, Box 29211, Moncton, NB E1G 4R3, or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your support is important. PFLAG Canada is Canada’s only national charitable organization that provides support and education to anyone with questions or concerns about sexual orientation or gender identity issues. The organization is supported by a vast network of volunteers who give generously of their time and compassion to help make a difference in the lives of the people who come to us for help. Funding is provided through corporate sponsorships, fundraising projects and by private donors who are committed to inspiring change.
Thank you for your support!
