OutCentral announces 2012 Gay 5K

May 23, 2012 O&AN Staff Reports   Comments

NASHVILLE - When the folks at OutCentral Cultural Center say “gay”, they say it on the move.

Preparations are under way for the 2012 Gay 5K and kids’ “Fun 1” races, taking place on Saturday, June 23, at Shelby Bottoms Greenway. All proceeds from the event will benefit OutCentral.

Registration for the event is $20, and $15 for the kids’ (12 and under) event.

Not a runner? Don’t worry! Those whose don’t relish the thought of getting up at dark-thirty and running a gentle, clearly marked route can pay the Sleep-In rate of $20. You get your beauty sleep and a T-shirt; what could be more fair?)

Looking for other ways to participate? Become a sponsor. OutCentral has the following opportunities available for your organization or business:

  • Donate $1,000, and they will name the race after you! You’ll also get your company’s logo on the race T-shirt, banner, website, social-media pages, newsletter and everywhere else. You’ll also get to place your information and other materials in the participants’ swag bags, and receive two complimentary entries.
  • $500 gets your logo on the T-shirt and in the newsletter, inserts in the swag bags and one complimentary entry.
  • For $250, OutCentral will put your materials into the swag bags, give you a complimentary appearance in the newsletter, and put your logo on the T-shirt for good measure.
  • For $100, you’ll get to put your very own goodies into the swag bags.

For more information on registering for the Gay 5K, visit www.outcentral.org. If you’d like to sponsor the event, at any level, please contact Kate Nelson at (615) 268-0319 or kate@outcentral.org.

Run. Walk. Roll. Crawl. Gay. Lesbian. Straight. Bi. Trans. Be yourself and bring your best to the 2012 Gay 5K!
