Run for a Cause this Season!

Santa Cause 2.jpgYou don’t have to go far this holiday season… Only 3.1 miles to give for a good reason! Grand Junction Parks and Recreation is teaming up with the Grand Junction Kiwanis in an effort to continue raising funds to build all-inclusive playground equipment in parks around the Grand Valley.

It’ll be a sight to see this Saturday, December 14th on the Riverfront Trail at Las Colonias Park, as more than 100 Santa’s take off on the course at our 4th Annual Santa Cause Run. Races begin at 10:00 a.m.

Over $8,900 has been raised so far to provide all-inclusive playground e

quipment and both the City of Grand Junction and Kiwanis will work together to determine where and when the funds will be used.

“Having inclusive playground equipment means there is a variety of opportunities accessible to children of all abilities,” said Tricia Rothwell, Recreation Coordinator. “This race is a fun, festive time, and a way to celebrate the season while impacting the lives of our kids.”

If you missed the early bird deadline, race day registration opens at Las Colonias Park at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 14. Click here or call us at 970-254-3866 for more information or to register.
