EVENT DATE: Jun 17, 2017
The Equality Run has become one of our most popular and diverse events. It’s an amazing experience that showcases a family-friendly and health conscience atmosphere. 2017 will mark our 5th Annual equality run. The run has grown steadily every year, and this year we will eclipse 800 participants. The event will also be paired with a brunch to offer celebration of the success of the runners and a place for other supporters to join us for the occasion.
This year's run will celebrate the memory of Shaun Kamiko, who lost a courageous battle with lymphoma in November of 2016. Shaun was known to many in Oklahoma City as the iconic DJ Kamiko for many years. He had a great passion and love for music, life, people, the LGBTQ community, and animals. Before becoming ill, Shaun’s favorite thing to do was run outdoors with his husband, Allan Hernandez. Their most memorable run together was the Equality Run, where they crossed the finish line hand in hand. Freedom Oklahoma is committed to making this memory an eternal one for Shaun.
