2011 FASB Fitness Festival is huge success
The totals are still being tallied, but it’s safe to say that hundreds of parents and children, students and teachers, and friends and neighbors had a fabulous time at the 11th Annual First American State Bank Fitness Festival, held Sat., Sept. 10 at Crescent Park, in Greenwood Village.
 
The weather was beautiful. There were performances by the Cherry Creek High School Meistersingers and the Eaglecrest High School Raptor Marching Band.  Spirit squads from all six district high schools cheered as runners and walkers of all ages crossed the 1K and 5K finish lines.  Then it was on to the “best after party ever,” which featured a silent auction, delicious food from local restaurants, and great entertainers, including the Belleview Elementary Jump Rope Team and the Cleo Parker Robinson dancers.
 
Grand Marshal and Olympic snowboarder Chris Klug inspired the crowd with his story of winning a bronze medal at the Salt Lake City Winter Games in 2002, just two years after undergoing a life-saving liver transplant.
 
“Set your mind to it, believe in yourself, and pursue your dreams and passions,” said Klug.  “Most importantly, continue to live a healthy, active lifestyle.”
 
The First American State Bank Fitness Festival benefits the Community Asset Project (CAP) of the Cherry Creek School District, which positively impacts more than 50,000 students and their families through youth leadership training, Positive Behavior Supports, and other important programs.  Get more information about CAP at www.assetsconnect.org.
