It's time to stretch it out, UpLift! We're taking "long-term" to the next level with the Denver Colfax Marathon! Whether you're running the long-haul 26, or in for the 5k, we're looking forward to seeing you at the start line.
Colorado UpLift is a Denver nonprofit that supports urban youth through in-school and after-school programs. We offer a holistic curriculum which addresses students' academic, emotional, and physical needs. Students first encounter UpLift in elementary school, and have the opportunity to work with us all the way through high-school and into adulthood. Whether it is a child who needs a ride to the dentist, a teenager who has been abused, or a young adult applying for a job, UpLift's mentors provide 24/7 guidance and support to students in our program.
Through UpLift’s long-term, life-changing relationships, we make a difference in the lives of students. Our approach is simple. It’s the power of one responsible, caring adult in a child’s life, and our unshakeable belief that every kid has infinite value and potential. Through this simple belief, we foster Denver’s next generation leaders, community role-models, and entrepreneurs.
There's a lot of ways we can tell our youth that they are important. So come run with us. You never know what you'll learn after you run a mile next to their shoes.
