A proud and colorful "hello" to PWP NATION! Here's hoping 2017 to date, has been one of good health and great endeavors. As the calendar fast approaches springtime, Powered With Pride organizers thought it fitting to take a moment and update on our organization's plans ahead.
Since PWP's inception in 2012, we've accomplished much. The creation of a pride run unbound by traditional confines, marked a first in many aspects for our beloved home city and state. Along the way we've met wonderful friends from dozens of states and multiple countries, received world-renowned corporate support, marched in parades, celebrated "fitness firsts" at post-race parties, and so much more, all while dispelling stereotypes in the name of community and camaraderie. Equally important are the tens of thousands of dollars raised in support of amazing partner organizations like YMCA Safe Place Services, Louisville Youth Group, Kentuckiana Pride Foundation, Lexington Pride Festival and many more!
A desire to maximize our brand/impact/efforts coupled with June dates never allowing for school/university participation all seem to be signs that point to a right time to stop, take stock of where we are as an organization, and look to a re-imagined future. We've decided against holding PWP in our traditional June time slot, and we'll be taking the next weeks/months to continue to dream big on "what's next." We don't have those answers just yet. When we do, PWP Nation will be among the first to know.
Until then, dream big, live large, and RUN PROUD. . .always!
