Run For Love 5K raises $30,000 for a local LGBT center

Raleigh, NC – Nearly 1,500 participants registered for this year’s Run For Love 5K at Dorthea Dix Park.

This was the fourth year of the race, which is held annually to raise money for Raleigh’s LGBT Center. Despite having to cancel 2020, race organizer and runology owner Alex Warren noted that “it came back strong last year and even stronger this year”.

Along with Runologie, the 5K is sponsored by Trophy Brewing, where owner David Meeker welcomed attendees with a complimentary drink and after-party.

“I think we have to make sure everyone is comfortable being themselves,” Meeker said.

But this community event goes beyond supporting the LGBT center. As Warren explains, “All the volunteers you see on the course, most of them are members of Healing Transitions.” Healing Transitions is a local nonprofit and shelter focused on helping homeless people struggling with addiction to have.

As one of those volunteers put it, “To tell you what Run For Love is, you have to know what love is… You love who you want, no matter who it is.”
