Charity Partner

Forging Youth Resilience (FYR)

Forging Youth Resilience (FYR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that empowers young people to build physical and mental strength for life by providing access to a network of community-based fitness programs, nutrition education and mentorship.

We use fitness as a tool to teach imperative life skills like perseverance, grit, determination, resilience and confidence to prepare our athletes to face the challenges life throws their way with grace, maturity and strength.

Headquartered in Denver, CO, we thought becoming a charity partner with the Denver Colfax Marathon would be a great way to get our surrounding community involved in our mission. This partnership will allow us to expand our reach, make an even greater impact on under-resourced youth in Colorado and across the country, and continue to work towards creating a world where all young people feel strong, capable, and confident to become the best version of themselves.
