Pride in the Friendly City: Orrick Hosts 2024 “Pride in Wheeling Day”

Every year, communities across the country and state celebrate Pride Month. For the 8th year in a row, Orrick promotes Pride by hosting its annual “Pride in Wheeling” community event. This year, the event will be held on Friday, June 7th

Pride in Wheeling is not only a celebration but a coming together of volunteer groups around community improvement projects and a conversation about diversity, equity & inclusion. Orrick partnered with local sponsors WesBanco, NAMI Greater Wheeling, Dinsmore and Crittenton Services to promote this year’s event, which is truly about locally fostering inclusion and development.

The Pride in Wheeling 2024 event involves working along the Wheeling Heritage Trail, picking up trash, and painting two murals. Volunteers will also be painting the walls at the Garden Park in Warwood. The Heritage Port Playground will be the home base for the event. The playground is located on the trail, just North of the intersection of 11th and Water St at Heritage Port.

Nick Roxby, Co-chair of the Orrick Pride in Wheeling Committee, notes, “Working with our sponsors and community to yet again make this event a reality is truly an honor. I continue to be humbled by the incredible community support. Please consider participating, but if you can’t make it out, we are still grateful for all of those who support through conversation and awareness.”

Everyone is encouraged and welcome to participate as a volunteer. If you would like to participate or if you would like more information, please contact co-chair Nick Roxby at
