DaVita Charity Partners Program

“As a community school, we at Dora Moore love being a charity partner.  We have found this partnership to be enjoyable and profitable.  In Denver Public Schools, we value fun.  Being a charity partner allows for more community members to see our school as a partner in the work of raising the best kids in the nation.”  Dora Moore E-8 School

“Being a charity partner has not only helped our organization raise money, but it has created a space to get our community involved and demonstrate their passing for solving Colorado’s dropout crisis.”  Colorado Youth for A Change

“For the 7th consecutive year, Mike Weiner organized multiple relay teams from across the nation to participate in the Colfax Marathon in 2017.  His teams have raised well over $7,000.”  The ALS Association – Rocky Mountain Chapter

“If as a non-profit, you can only participate in one event a year, this is the best event you can participate in.”    Animal Rescue of the Rockies

Join one of the nation’s largest charity partner programs!

More than 200 nonprofits participated in the Colfax Marathon in 2017 to raise funds and awareness for their cause and have fun. Use our events as your platform. There is no cost to join but it does take some time and energy. You keep all of the money that you raise. Our team is here to help you get visibility, share ideas, and tell your story.  Questions?  Contact jean@runcolfax.org.

How To Get Started

  • The best way to get started is to attend an introductory meeting.  However, we just concluded our introductory meetings for our 2018 event.
  • If you are already familiar with participating in an event as a charity partner, contact jean@runcolfax.org and we can explore whether 2018 is a still good  choice for you.
  • If you want to be invited to our 2019 introductory meetings, also contact jean@runcolfax.org.  We gear up in the fall and would love to have you consider us.

Learn More

The first step to become a charity partner is to attend an introduction-to-the-Colfax-Charity-Partners meeting.  We explain what is involved in becoming a charity partner so you can decide if our program might be a fit for your organization.  Our meetings are free, fun and short, plus you receive some swag!

All meetings are at our office in Cherry Creek North, 201 Milwaukee St., Suite 200.   Our next meeting will be in the fall for our 2019 events.
