Swingle Team Runs in Colfax Marathon to Fundraise for Families First
More than a dozen enthusiastic Swingle employees and their family members will run in the upcoming 2013 Colfax Marathon this weekend, May 18-19th. Each has pledged to raise over $125 to benefit Families First. Look for them as they buzz by. They’ll all be wearing “Swingle green” shirts, so you can’t miss them!
Families First is a Denver-based nonprofit organization dedicated to ending child abuse in Colorado.
This is an exciting event to kick off the season and see Denver, with 7 races in 2 days. Runners will see the sights of Denver as they pass by the Denver Zoo, City Park, and other beautiful outdoor spaces the City offers, all with unforgettable views of the Rocky Mountains as the backdrop. There’s a little something for everyone in this urban tour of the Mile High City!
