Through this program, athletes from coast-to-coast are participating in bike rides, marathons, walks, mountain climbs, triathlons, mud runs, and other sporting events all in the name of raising funds for equal marriage rights. Athletes 4 (=) is Marriage Equality USA's unique program that allows you to support our work to achieve full equality by combining your love of sport, personal achievement and belief in equal rights for your friends, family, colleagues and neighbors.
