The Cherry Creek Sneak will be held on May 1st at Cherry Creek North in Denver, Colorado. The event, which is usually held the last weekend in April, was re-scheduled due to the Easter holiday. The proceeds received from the event will benefit The Kempe Foundation for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect.
Multiple events are planned during the day including a 5 mile run, a 5k or 3.1 mile run, a 1 and ½ mile sprint, and a half mile fun run for children. Toddlers are welcome to participate in the “Diaper Dash”, a fun event sponsored by The Rocky Mountain Hospital. Adults are welcome to participate in the costume run, an event held in the beer gardens. Costumes will be judged during the event, and winners will receive prizes. All participants are welcome to attend the post race block party where fun activities, food, and drinks are available for both kids and adults.
Volunteers are needed to help make this event a success. Volunteers will receive t-shirts and magazine subscriptions as well as a sense of satisfaction from helping to raise money for an important cause.
Participants can register either online, by mail, or in person. Deadlines for registration vary: April 22nd is the deadline for registration by mail; April 29th is the deadline for registering online; and April 30th is the deadline for registering in person. Registration fees vary depending upon the age of the participant; there are discounts for registering before the day of the event too. Fees for adults over 18 are $40; fees for seniors and children under 18 are $25. A special family registration fee allows 2 children and 2 adults to participate in events for a fee of $100. Participants are also welcome to enclose donations and pledges in addition to registration fees. Each dollar earned from registration fees, pledges, and donations goes to The Kempe Foundation to help offset their expenses and to help prevent and treat child abuse. All donations help to make a difference in the life of an abused or neglected child in the Denver area. As a special thank you for participating in this worthwhile event, all registrants will receive a free year’s subscription to the Denver magazine.
