About our event

The Columbus Neon Rainbow Run is a nighttime, 5K glow run taking place on May 12th, 2018 in the streets of Columbus, OH that sees our runners being doused by blacklight reactive color powder, paint, and foam as they race to the finish line. This is followed by our Health and Wellness Festival, featuring live entertainment, local vendors, free HIV/STI testing, and a variety of activities. Our event is a fundraiser for Kaleidoscope Youth Center, a local Columbus LGBTQ nonprofit that aims to work in partnership with young people in Central Ohio to create safe and empowering spaces for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning and Ally youth through advocacy, education, support, and community engagement.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Kaleidoscope Youth Center and The Columbus Neon Rainbow Run would like to invite your business to be a sponsor of The Second Annual Columbus Neon Rainbow Run, a nighttime, glow-in-the-dark 5K race across our great city of Columbus followed by our Health and Wellness Festival. Your sponsorship gives Kaleidoscope the resources to continue working with the community and provide accessible education and critical necessities to disadvantaged LGBTQ youth, helping them garner self-sustaining jobs. This partnership not only gives Kaleidoscope the resources to continue its incredible work, but offers your business positive PR and a boost in sales. At The Columbus Neon Rainbow Run, we ensure a successful relationship with our sponsors through four key areas:

Brand Visibility: The Second Annual Columbus Neon Rainbow Run is projected to welcome over 1,000 runners for its event and enjoy an extensive media blitz. And luckily, your company’s logo will be everywhere on this event; your business will receive recognition from not only our runners, but the entire Columbus community. Additionally, from t-shirts, race kits, water bottles, and more, your company’s name will be with our runners long after the last runners crosses the finish line!

Creative Approval: The Columbus Neon Rainbow Run values our partners’ input and want to ensure our partners’ DNA is also infused into our event. We believe in complete transparency and understand that our partners’ most important asset - their brand - is respected and being properly represented. Thus, our sponsors sign off on any and all creative efforts featuring their logo.

Metrics: The Columbus Neon Rainbow Run wants to ensure our sponsors can see the impact their contribution has on their sales. We proudly offer common metrics used to measure sponsorship ROI to evaluate the amount of exposure our sponsors receive throughout the event and its promotion.

Open Lines of Communication: The Columbus Neon Rainbow Run always delivers what it is promised and is clear and concise in what our sponsors can expect from their investment. We treat our partners like prized clients and value lasting, mutually-beneficial business relationships.

Kaleidoscope Youth Center is the only organization in Ohio solely dedicated to supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth and their allies. 

Founded in 1994, Kaleidoscope is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization.  The mission of Kaleidoscope Youth Center is to work in partnership with young people in Central Ohio to create safe and empowering environments for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning and ally youth through advocacy, education, support, and community engagement.

Our vision is for youth across the spectrums of sexual orientation and gender identity to live healthy, whole lives with acceptance and freedom from oppression. We stay true to our mission by intentionally partnering with young people to create and implement programs and services that enhance the lives of LGBTQ youth and allies in five key areas: social and behavioral health; holistic health and wellness; life-skills development; identity affirmation and community building; and leadership development, empowerment, and advocacy.

The Center includes the Tom W. Davis family room, the Kiwanis Club of Columbus Multipurpose Room, the Virginia West and Nina West Performance Space, the David Bohnett Cyber Center, a gaming room, a creative arts gallery, the KYC Cafe, a full kitchen featuring hot food and other snacks, and a resource room with clothing and hygiene items.

For the past three years, Kaleidoscope has been able to develop additional programs offering self-esteem, health and wellness programs and assistance with Genders and Sexualities Alliances in Columbus City Schools and Franklin County schools (along with those in contiguous counties). Kaleidoscope Youth Center utilizes proven “youth development” strategies in its out-of-school programming.

As has been true since its inception, Kaleidoscope continues to advocate for policies that help LGBTQ youth with regard to safe schools, mental health, personal development, and other important areas.

As a youth service agency serving the Central Ohio area, Kaleidoscope Youth Center has become a well-respected community-based organization providing direct services to youth, training and education to youth service providers, and important information relating to sexual orientation and gender identity issues to the community at large. From peer-to-peer programs to HIV prevention and education, after-school programs and peer counseling services, Kaleidoscope assists LGBTQ youth in the transition to healthy, productive adults and provides them with the necessary tools to become leaders in the greater community.
