The Michelob Ultra Night Run is a proud supporter of You Can Play.
The You Can Play Project works to ensure the safety and inclusion for all who participate in sports, including LGBTQ+ athletes, coaches and fans. We achieve this by creating a community of allies that is able to foster a true sense of belonging. This becomes possible when sports teams sharpen the focus on the person’s skills, work ethic, and competitive spirit, not their sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.
You Can Play seeks to challenge the culture of locker rooms and spectator areas by developing a culture of respect, in every player, coach and fan. In March of 2022, we celebrated 10 years of advocacy in sport and with that has come a renewed commitment and energy to our mission.
New partnerships, advanced and strategically developed education modules are going to increase our reach and most importantly our impact. While we can all happily say, the sports world has grown from an inclusion lens in the last decade, we also acknowledge that more work needs to be done and we embrace the fact that we are not yet satisfied!
