Track and field star CeCe Telfer announced that she will be joining basketball couple Haley Videckis and Layana White in the New York City World Pride March.

The athletes took to Instagram in support of a campaign with The Points Guy during Pride Month to raise $1,000,000 for Rainbow Railroad, an organization that provides support for LGBTQ people as they seek safe haven from state-enabled violence, murder, or persecution.

Each donation will qualify supporters for a chance to win a trip to NYC to meet with Brian Kelly, who will plan the trip of a lifetime using 1 Million Chase Ultimate Rewards Points.

The campaign kicked off June 11th and will conclude with a Boeing 747-themed float in the NYC World Pride March on Sunday, June 30th. The focal point of the march will include Chechen refugees who, despite the many hardships facing them, will be able to march freely in their first Pride March.
