WE'RE ENDING CHILDHOOD HUNGER IN AMERICA — AND YOU CAN HELP
No child in America should grow up hungry. But too many kids in our country don't have the food they need to thrive.
More than 200,000 children in Colorado are at risk of hunger. Cooking Matters, part of Share Our Strength's national campaign to end childhood hunger, empowers low-income families to stretch their food budgets so their children get healthy meals at home. Every $1 you donate can help connect a child with up to 10 meals.
Cooking Matters Colorado is participating as a Charity Partner in the 2018 Colfax Marathon. Be a part of the ultimate urban tour throughout the Denver Metro area. Courses include the Denver Zoo, Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Cherry Creek Bike path, downtown, fire stations, and much more. Runners can participate in a Marathon, Marathon Relay (5 person team), Half Marathon, Urban 10 miler, or 5K (open to runners, walkers, dogs, and strollers!), with a celebration after the races.
