EVENT DATE: May 13, 2016
Children's Diabetes Foundation is participating as a charity partner in the Colfax Marathon!

The Children’s Diabetes Foundation was established by Barbara and Marvin Davis in 1977 in Denver as a non-profit organization dedicated solely to the support of research in diabetes and to provide the best possible clinical and educational programs for people with the disease. The Foundation’s mission is to raise funds to support the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes, where thousands of patients of all ages from all over the world receive the finest diabetes care available. Since 1978, the Children’s Diabetes Foundation has contributed $100 million dollars to the Barbara Davis Center.
Below is some information about the Colfax Marathon and how to register:
The Colfax Marathon includes a variety of race lengths to accommodate people of all fitness levels: a 5K, 10-miler, half marathon, 4-person relay and full marathon.
- Friday, May 13: Health and Fitness Expo
- Saturday, May 14: Colfax 5K

Running for CDF does not add any extra cost to marathon registration, but helps CDF greatly! Colfax Marathon nonprofit partners are able to use the event as a platform to raise awareness about their charity, keep all the money team members raise, and have the chance to win prize money, as the race series gives a cash prize to the three charity partners that attract the most runners.

1. Sign up on the main site registration page.
2. Click on "individual races" or "relay teams."
3. On the registration page, choose "Children's Diabetes Foundation" under "Please select the 2016 charity partner you are supporting."
