Stanley Harvesting Hope 5K

Stanley Harvesting Hope 5k Denver, CO

Started by two local Stapleton moms with deep ties to Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS), the 3rdAnnual Harvesting Hope 5K will take runners (and walkers) through the beautiful paths surrounding Central Park in the Stapleton community. Event registration includes a t-shirt, swag bag and timed results, and proceeds from the race will go to benefit the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research. The Harvesting Hope 5K is the only race in the state that promotes awareness of PWS and childhood obesity – a matter of heavy focus and medical research here in Colorado.

Thanksgiving can be a particularly difficult time for those dealing with PWS, and Harvesting Hope gives local families an opportunity to celebrate and be thankful together – rather than focusing on the difficult parts of the holiday. As a family-focused event, kids 10 and under are invited to participate in a free 1K fun run and enjoy an Epic Kids Zone following the race. Post-event activities will include:

  • Face paining
  • Balloon animals
  • A visit from Paddington Bear
  • Silent auction featuring donations from local vendors
