When the world was gripped by COVID-19 in early 2020, our CEO Milo Primeaux (he/they) felt compelled to do something, anything to help people who were hurting around him. After initial fears and panic subsided, Milo decided that his something would be to bring much needed attention and support to transgender people in crisis during the global pandemic. This page explains what he's doing, archives his efforts, and offers you opportunities to share your support!
Milo uses the runs to talk about critically important issues trans people face (e.g., transphobia, racism, ableism in the workplace, healthcare settings, prisons, etc.) and chats with other trans leaders who share their insight, brilliance, and visions of equitable futures.
Videos of these runs are available below.
People can make one-time donations or pledge as little as $0.01 for every mile he runs while training for the marathon and the marathon itself. All funds raised will be donated to the Marsha P. Johnson Institute and the Trans Justice Funding Project -- two incredible organizations that are supporting trans folks in crisis and in more sustainable ways.
