Join hundreds of participants as we embark on a new unique tradition in the City of Boston with the very first HIGH HEEL DASH for CHARITY. Each participant’s entry fee will go the Boston Pride Community Fund, which is aimed at financially supporting small, grassroots organizations in our community through annual grants. Past recipients of the Community Fund have used their grants to organize seminars for trans* and youth audiences, to conduct health outreach to communities of color, or to enable projects for LGBTQ singers or grassroots activists. The High Heel Dash for Charity will help Boston Pride raise more funds, to empower more community members.

The rules are simple:

  • All participants are required to pre-register online*
  • Pay a small entry fee of $25 that will be noted to charity
  • Everyone is welcome regardless of sexual orientation, sex, gender and gender identity.
  • Participants must be 18 years old.
  • High heels must have a minimum of a 2 inches heel. No Wedges are allow.
