about us


who we are


our vision


The pride & remembrance run is a 5km fundraising run/walk organized and operated by the philanthropic and athletic-oriented Pride And Remembrance Association.

The pride & remembrance run is the only annual athletic event during Toronto's Pride Week, promoting and fostering community spirit, goodwill, volunteerism, and sportsmanship in the Canadian LGBTQ+ community.

Founded in 1996 in Toronto, Canada, the 5km run and 3km walk is the largest, long running and most fun pride run in Canada.

The Pride And Remembrance Association is a leading not for profit volunteer-run organization dedicated to supporting Toronto's LGBTQ+ community.

Each year the Pride And Remembrance Association selects community charities who receive 100% of the charitable pledges that are raised.



We promise credibility & responsibility within our LGBTQ+ community.


We are united & strong in the context of our past to celebrate our future.


We believe in the positive power of sport to encourage health, wellness & fun.


our mission
