What People Are Saying...

My son + I had wanted to run a 5k to see how fast we could be - 30 min! He was amazing!

First Colorado Run! Really cool to see all the youngsters...Very well organized.

The Elevate Kids fun run is a great community event for people of all ages and abilities! Very well executed, especially for the first year! We’re already excited to participate, in support of kids, next year!

~ Jessica Burford

I really enjoyed running and seeing how many people came out to run. I also loved the food vendors.

Team Participation Contest

Join a team and raise money for a local school or kid focused non-profit team.

Anyone can participate. Students, Parents, Siblings, Teachers, Friends. Neighbors. Everyone can sign up for your school’s team and raise funds for the PE Program! The more who register for your school’s team the more money your school raises.

How does it work?

1. Register

Register for the fun run and join a local school's team or a local kid focused non-profits team.

We have created teams for each school on our event signup platform. When someone registers for the fun run on a team they are helping that team.

How to Join a Team

2. Earn $$$ for a team

We give a percentage of each registration fee on a team back to that team’s PE program. There are 3 distances to choose from, 2.5k, 5k and 10k.
We give back the following percentages based on the race they sign up for:
  • 20% on the 2.5k registrations
  • 25% on the 5k registrations
  • 30% on the 10k registrations

3. Compete to Earn More

In addition this year we have created a contest for the teams with the most participants. There are cash prizes for the top 3 teams with the most registered participants. The prizes also go that that school’s PE program.

The prizes are:

  • 1st place = $1,000.00
  • 2nd place = $750.00
  • 3rd place = $500.00

Be sure to select a team to support the school of your choice when you register.
