Micro Rainbow International Foundation has been selected as the Pride Run 10K official charity for 2019-2020.
Minesh Patel, Pride Run 10K Race Director on why Pride Run 10k chose the MRI Foundation as a charity partner:
“The Pride Run 10k is pleased to have the MRI Foundation as its partner charity for 2019. Through this partnership we hope to support the vital work the charity does to tackle discrimination faced by many LGBT+ people around the world, as well as improve social inclusion for LGBT+ asylum seekers and refugees in the UK”
About Pride Run 10K
Pride Run is a not-for-profit run. It is organised every year by a group of volunteers from London Frontrunners, an inclusive running club for lesbians, gay and bisexual men and women, transgender and gay-friendly people.
The Pride Run 10K is a flat, fast 3-lap 10km fun run held in beautiful Victoria Park in east London. The run is known for its fun, inclusive atmosphere. It will take place on Saturday 10th August at 11am. For more information please view the Pride Run 10K website.
Our three main programmes and Pride Run 10K 2019 targets
We work globally to help LGBTI people achieve their full potential in life and have equal access to employment, training, education, financial services, healthcare, housing, places of faith, and public places and services.
We do so through three main programmes: economic empowerment and advocacy, emergency housing and support and social inclusion. For each programme we have a target to achieve in 2019. You can help us achieve these targets by fundraising for us. Your support will change LGBTI lives. We have also listed some examples of how small income generating activities can promote LGBTI equality in Cambodia and how as little as £36 can prevent homelessness of LGBTI asylum seekers in the United Kingdom.
Economic empowerment & advocacy
Emergency housing & support
