Adventure Fit Events will be offering support to the communities impacted by the Marshall Fire in Boulder County, Colorado. The event organizer will be donating a portion of its registration proceeds from the upcoming Old Man Winter Rally on February 6th.
The event firm will also be donating on behalf of event volunteer hours and has set up a community Facebook group for athletes to post needs and wants that nearby community members can fulfil when able.
The Old Man Winter Rally will donate $20 from every registration between now and January 12th with the recipient being the Boulder County Wildfire Fund via the Community Foundation serving Boulder County.
A philanthropic partner for over 30 years, Community Foundation Boulder County will work closely with the government and non-profit partners to coordinate, align resources and fill gaps to support those most impacted by the wildfires.
Adventure Fit Events will be donating US$20 for every hour volunteered at the Old Man Winter Rally.
“We are absolutely heartbroken at the sheer devastation the Marshall Fire has brought upon our communities,” said Josh Kravetz, founder of Adventure Fit Events. “We’ve all faced challenges over the last few years that we never anticipated with COVID. To have this level of tragedy hit the communities we know, love, and live in is a big blow below the belt. We want to give how we can while encouraging folks to connect and share as they can, too.”
The Old Man Winter Rally’s public Facebook group is titled ‘Rider and Runner Gear Donations for Marshall Fire Victims. The group is designed to help athletes get back on track with the support of free cycling and running gear.
“If someone has an item to donate, they just post a photo and description (sizing when applicable) and it’s ready to be claimed down the road.”
