WHEN DID THIS FABULOUS RUN BEGIN?
In 2012, when Monica Anderson aka Kin Folkz was on the board of Oakland Pride, Kin conceived The Oakland Pride Run and wrote out a full proposal for it - noting that it would be free and open to everyone! Kin began to save up her work earnings (it took 2 years) to fund the 1st run - which was launched in 2014. G.B.Blackmon, Wanda Smith, Paige Harris, Kenneth Smith, Neyra Rosa, Imani Smith, and Nkosi Smith joined Kin Folkz in 2015 to offer support for the community-led run. The day of the run over 20 more volunteers showed up to support this free run that benefits local organizations. Kin refers to them all as her co-founding members!
How can I contact the organizers?
Kin Folkz can be reached at 510-239-7197
