Why Elevate Kids?

In our quest to raise money for the causes we love, we have set a new 2023 challenge. Melinda is currently training to set the Women's FKT (Fastest Known Time) record for completing the Colorado Trail. Meaning, she hopes to finish the trail in ten days. Follow her journey as we support the kids and causes we're so passionate about!

Great Causes by Great organizations

Our Story, Our Mission

In the summer of 2020, we (Doug and Melinda McCaw) ran the 490-mile Colorado Trail. We went from Denver, through the Rocky Mountains to Durango, Colorado, in just 18 days. Why? To raise money for several kid-focused charities in Western Colorado's Grand Valley. The response was so inspiring that we created our own non-profit "Elevate Kids". This year, Melinda continues training to raise awareness and funds for charities that help elevate kids. Follow her as she attempts to set the Women's FKT (Fastest Known Time) by completing the Trail in ten days. We appreciate your generosity as you join us in supporting these organizations and their invaluable efforts in helping kids in the Grand Valley.
