KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — June is Pride Month, but it could be hard to tell without any of the usual celebrations that mark it. The coronavirus pandemic has caused several groups to cancel their usual plans, the University of Tennessee included.
Instead, UT is going virtual for its pride month celebrations. The university is challenging students to walk, jog or run a mile to complete a challenge through the JustMove app. Officials also said they encourage people to dress in pride gear while they complete their mile.
The app is a free virtual racing and fitness app that allows people to create racing challenges and invite people to participate in them. It's available for Android and iPhone.
The Virtual Pride March can take place anytime between June 15 - 19. Instructions on how to participate in the challenge can be found on UT's website.
