Denver's 1st SCTNOW Stilettos Race and Fun Run/Walk
Saturday, October 2nd, a dream was realized. The volunteers and coordinators for SCTNOW Denver, pulled off a fabulous Stilettos Race and 5k Fun Run/Walk at Elitch Gardens in Denver. Over $30,000 dollars was raised for the Stop Child Trafficking NOW organization. Donations will continue to be collected through November, so if you haven't had a chance to donate, please go to www.SCTNOW.org.
The money raised from the SCTNOW organization funds Special Operative Teams to gather information about the Child Trafficking predators here in the United States and abroad. The culmination of the Special Operative's predator tracking - results in convictions.
It was an honor to have my own Mrs. Colorado team participate in both the Stiletto's Race and 5k run. I took both my stilettos and my running shoes so I could participate in both races. I wouldn't be much of a Mrs. Colorado, if I didn't win the Stiletto's Race - my self inflicted pressure. If you look closely, you'll see in one of the pictures, I was the recipient of the 1st Place Trophy. I hope to defend the title at next year's SCTNOW race. I quickly unbuckled the heels and traded them for my tennis shoes. I'll admit, the 5k was a lot easier to run!
Thank you again for all who came out to support SCTNOW. Thank you especially, Team Mrs. Colorado!!
