Show us your Pride!
Join folks from Louisville and beyond for our annual
Powered With Pride 5K!
In 2014, PWP Nation is poised to grow larger, stronger...PROUDER!
Our mission: To engage and empower communities, by fostering a healthy sense of self, one proud step at a time.
Powered With Pride Run/Walk, presented by Humana Vitality, returns to Louisville's Pride Weekend line-up in 2014 after an incredibly successful inaugural event in June 2013. Energized by the amazing support from Louisville's LGBT and supporting communities which united in such a healthy and visible display, many new PWP-focused events are planned in 2014...all culminating with our run/walk on Saturday, June 21st. We hope you'll become a part of PWP Nation and join the journey!
All participants will receive a custom designed race t-shirt and black rainbow tube socks.
Each year we donate a portion of our proceeds to a local non-profit focused on advancing causes near and dear to the LGBT and supporting communities.
Our 2014 charity beneficiary is The Louisville Youth Group! LYG boosts the self-esteem of GLBT youth by providing a safe space that encourages positive life choices, teaches healthy interactions with peers and adults, and develops activities in which youth are challenged to reach their full potential.

Comfy Cow Chase
The Comfy Cow Chase is our NEW kid's fun run added to PWP festivities for those age 12 and under. The fun run will take place as soon as the last PWP participant has victoriously crossed the 5K finish line in Cherokee Park! Fun run participants will join The Comfy Cow mascot, and other costumed characters, as they dash along our grassy-chase-course in a colorful display of fun and wellness. The cost to join is $5, with all participants receiving a children's pair of Pride Socks, finisher's award, and FREE scoop of Comfy Cow ice cream! Registration for those 12 and under is on our active.com registration page.
