Run for Rocky 2015


The third annual Run for Rocky, benefiting the Windsor Pride Community, Education and Resource Centre and Gay-Straight alliances in the region’s High School and Post Secondary School Systems, was held on April 12 and met with outstanding success. Hundreds of runner, walkers and supporters from Windsor and beyond gathered together in Dieppe Gardens Park for an afternoon in celebration and support of youth in our community, with funds raised going directly to benefit GSA programs within our schools.



For its three successful years, the Run for Rocky has commemorated and celebrated the life of Rocky Campana, who was a proud advocate and volunteer within the LGBTQ community. The Run honours Rocky’s memory in a meaningful way by contributing to a cause he was passionate about: the education and support of youth and the creation of safe spaces within our schools.

In addition to the many programs and services the funds raised through the run help to initiate, Windsor is sending a group of 25 educators and students to the 2015 Outshine National GSA conference in Winnipeg this May, funded in part through grants provided by the Windsor Pride-Run for Rocky. This conference is an invaluable educational experience for all attendees, and Windsor’s attendance is particularly important, as the first-ever Intarnational Outshine conference will be hosted in our city in 2017. The Windsor Pride-Run for Rocky delegation can’t wait to help Windsor welcome the world to our city!

The 2016 Run for Rocky will take place on Sunday April 17 in Dieppe Park. For more information, please visit
