The Sand Creek Regional Greenway Partnership and Bluff Lake Nature Center are teaming up to put on the Race for Open Space 5K Walk/Run and Earth Day Festival on Saturday, April 20!
The beautiful 5K course will wind along the Sand Creek Regional Greenway through Denver and Aurora, and finish with a loop around Bluff Lake. The race will include prizes for best costumes, largest teams, biggest pledge-earners, and fastest runners. To register for the 5K, please visit www.runningguru.com/event/RaceForOpenSpaceCO5K.
We will kick off the morning at 8:50 a.m. with a Kid’s Fun Run, which is free and suggested for kids 7 and under. After the 5K, stick around Bluff Lake Nature Center for an Earth Day Festival from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., featuring live music, food trucks, environmental crafts and games, and a live raptor presentation from Wild Wings Environmental Education! There is a $5 suggested donation for the Earth Day Festival.
All proceeds from the 5K and Earth Day Festival will benefit the Sand Creek Regional Greenway Partnership and Bluff Lake Nature Center. By participating, you will help fund public recreation and natural areas in Aurora and Denver, as well as important environmental education programs for urban youth. What a great way to celebrate Earth Day!
We also need volunteers to help us the day of the event! Please contact Caroline at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
