Just getting started on the running scene? Try out the 5K where there are waves for runners and walkers (dogs and kids can run/walk too!).
USO Denver is a private 501©3 nonprofit organization that strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side. By running Colfax for the USO, you’ll join our family that is The Force Behind the Forces in the Denver Metro Area and in 200 locations around the world.
Funds raised through the Colfax Marathon Campaign will be recognized locally and will help to support currently serving military members and their families of all five branches, who are active duty, national guard or reservists through local programs and activities.
You can help us make a difference by choosing USO Denver as your charity of choice and running on our team, spreading the word to enlist support of friends and additional runners, and/or making a personal donation – for example:
$15 provides the opportunity for 30 traveling military service members or family members to participate in an Airport Stress Buster program.
$30 provides six new military parents the opportunity to participate in a USO Denver Military Families Baby Shower building community and a support network among those welcoming a new baby to a military family.
$50 provides a Drill Weekend Drop-In experience for an entire unit of National Guard Service Members or Reservists to boost morale on a hard day of training.
$100 provides holiday programming and support for 200 service members, spouses and children at a time when separations due to military service and deployments make celebrating as a family tough.
Together, we are The Force Behind The Forces, connecting America’s Military to the things they love the most – family, home and country.
