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

“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!

Here is a fun, 1-minute video about our charity partners program.

Colfax Marathon – Charity Partners Program Video

More than 200 nonprofits participated in the Colfax Marathon in 2019 to raise funds and awareness for their cause and have fun. They used our events as a platform to raise money and awareness.  There is no cost to join our program but it does take some time and energy. Our charity partners keep all of the money that they raise. Our team helps with visibility, tech support and fundraising ideas.

If you are thinking about joining us as a 2020 Charity Partner, we gear up in the fall.  Revisit our web site in September to learn more.

How To Get Started

Attend an introductory meeting!  The meetings are fast, fun and low key.  All meetings are at 8:30am until 9:30am and take place at our office in Cherry Creek North: 201 Milwaukee St., #200; Denver, Colorado.  Plan to arrive by 8:15, so we can start promptly at 8:30.  Check back for future dates – there will be additional meetings through March.  Pre-registration is required.


The Colfax Marathon Charity Partner program is a great way to boost the awareness of your program, introduce a new way to raise funds and have some fun!
