Event chair, Enrique Fonseca stated, “In light of the recent tragedies of young GLBT teens taking their lives, suffering physical and psychological bullying at school and trying to cope with rejection by family, friends and their churches, Front Runners has selected the LGBT Center’s Youth Housing Project as this year’s beneficiary.”
All members of the San Diego community are invited to run or walk the fast and flat course. In addition to receiving a special high tech t-shirt, participants can enjoy juice, refreshments and Starbucks Coffee. Medals will be presented to the top three finishers in each age group.
