Denver, CO — March 26th, 2021 – JackRabbit and Boulder Running Company have launched the #BOULDERSTRONG Relief Effort in support of the Colorado Healing Fund #BOULDERSTRONG RELIEF RUN
In light of the recent tragedy in Boulder, Colorado, we invite the running community to come together and show your support in the best way we know how. Beginning on March 29th through April 3rd, runners from across the globe can take part in a virtual run/walk to support and raise money for the victims of this terrible tragedy.
We are asking our community to run or walk to show solidarity, and we encourage participants to donate to support the victims and their families. 100% of all donations made will go directly to the Colorado Healing Fund, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that contributes financial support to victims of mass casualty crimes in Colorado.
Support is needed right away, so we ask for your help to meet our fundraising goal of $10,000 by this Saturday, April 3rd. This money will go directly to the families and victims in Colorado.
The Boulder Running Company location in Boulder, CO (2775 Pearl St, Boulder, CO 80302) will be hosting an in-person run, this Thursday, April 1st at 6pm. The event will follow local guidelines for gatherings during COVID-19. More info about the in-person run can be found on the Boulder Running Company social media handles (Facebook and Instagram)
In addition, JackRabbit/Boulder Running Company has stepped up and will match $1 for every mile that is run or walked up to $10,000 during this event.
Together we are #BOULDERSTRONG – let’s come together and help make a difference.
