STRIDE: The Ruth Ellis Legacy Walk - Creating opportunities with LGBTQ+ young people!

Join Gale, a Cengage Company’s PRIDE employee resource group in supporting STRIDE: The Ruth Ellis Legacy Walk. Help us raise critical funding to support LGBTQ+ young people and the work of our community partner Ruth Ellis Center.

We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

$1,650 towards $5,000

Founded in 1999, Ruth Ellis Center (REC) has established a national reputation for quality and innovation in providing trauma-informed services for lesbian, gay, bi-attractional, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ+) youth, and young adults, with an emphasis on young people of color, experiencing homelessness, involved in the child welfare system, and/or experiencing barriers to health and wellbeing. Donations are crucial to ensuring continuity of these critical services.

The weekend of September 25th, Gale PRIDE members will be participating in a socially-distanced activity of their choice to support the Ruth Ellis Center. We invite you to pledge your monetary support of our activities, and to join us by jogging, biking, walking the dog, kayaking, dancing, or any fun activity you choose—the point is just to get out there and move! Please be sure to donate today, and feel free to share this link far and wide with your friends and family.

"Why STRIDE? STRIDE because change requires action. STRIDE because LGBTQ youth deserve to be seen and heard. STRIDE for someone you love. STRIDE for a more equitable world. STRIDE because you can make a difference. STRIDE because complacency isn’t an option. STRIDE because even though we are apart, we stand together."
