The Rainbow Run

The Problem

Kankakee Community College's Gay-Straight Alliance works to promote understanding and acceptance of diversity both on campus and within the community. We work to spread awareness, provide support, and promote equality for LGBT individuals through events, projects, and meetings. We do community volunteering, fundraising and educational movies & seminars to try and open peoples minds and hearts. We are a small group of like minded individuals in an area that is primarily a farming community.

Plan of Action

We are planning a big event to try and bring the community out for a day of fun and learning about LGBT issues. We are planning a 5k run, called the Rainbow Run, where participants and doused in colored powder at each kilometer. At the end we are trying to arrange informational tables, vendors, refreshments and a congregating area for people to talk. We are hoping to raise money towards LGBT awareness and issues.
