The purpose is to create social and professional connections, celebrate life, while also giving back to the LGBT community.
“Miami Beach Gay Pride is proud to partner with companies that not only promote a healthy lifestyle, but also supports the community,” said Jorge Gesser, the marketing and sponsorship coordinator at Miami Beach Gay Pride.
Out-Fit Challenge hosts 5K to 7K cross-country trail runs, dotted by 10 to 15 military style obstacles, followed by an epic outdoor party. The inaugural event is taking place as part of the official line-up of festivities during Miami Beach Gay Pride in Oleta State Park, on April 13, 2013. Additional races in New York and Chicago are also confirmed for 2013.
Apart from putting on race events, the organisation aims to aid national and local charities that are making a significant difference in the lives of LGBT individuals across the US. We will make a financial contribution to their cause, and donate resources to serve as volunteers, planners or speakers at their events,“ said Tory Fitzgerald, the founder of Out-Fit Challenge.
In 2013, the following events are confirmed: April 13th in Miami, FL; June 29th in New York, NY; and August 3rd in Chicago, IL.
