Run for Rocky 2016 gathers 500 registered participants.
In an unprecedented show of support for the Run for Rocky 2016 and Gay Straight Alliances in our Community Directors of both the Greater Essex County District School Board, Erin Kelly, and the Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board, Paul Picard, were on hand to be part of the large funding announcement Caesars Windsor Cares made before the Run/Walk, Sunday in Dieppe Park.
That announcement was a $20,000 donation made by Caesars Windsor Cares to the organization.
“Caesars Windsor is proud to sponsor Run for Rocky in support of their Education for Educators Diversity Training program. We share in their commitment and support of keeping diversity and inclusion part of our Windsor-Essex community,” Susanne Tomkins, Public & Community Relations Specialist.
“The announcement made by Caesars Windsor Cares today is the final link in our goals to ensure both the Public and Catholic High School systems are supported through Windsor Pride-Run for Rocky GSA Funding. When participants witnessed the Directors of both Boards accepting funding to be used for Gay Straight Alliances for Diversity Training for Educators, they witnessed a monumental moment in the attitude and change we have seen evolve in Windsor in three short years” – Nancy Campana-Mother of Rocky Campana
