12th Annual FASB Fitness Festival a huge success

The final totals are still being tallied, but it’s clear that the 12th Annual First American State Bank Fitness Festival was a huge success that will benefit all students in the Cherry Creek School District.

More than 2,400 people registered for the fun, family event, held Sept. 8, which included the Rocky Vista University 5K Run/Walk and Kaiser Permanente 1K Fitness Walk. Another 600 people volunteered to cheer on the runners and walkers, pass out water bottles and goody bags, and man the booths, including the Silent Auction booths, where one of the most popular items was a painting by local artist Malcolm Farley of Colorado swimmer and 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist Missy Franklin.

Another Olympian, snowboarder Chris Klug, who is also a liver transplant recipient, served as Grand Marshal of the event, which supports for the Community Asset Project (CAP), a partner of the Cherry Creek School District. CAP provides students in Cherry Creek Schools with vital programs including drug/alcohol prevention, suicide prevention and Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS).

 

In the past eleven years, the First American State Bank Fitness Festival, led by FASB President Jay Davidson and his wife, Kristina, has raised more than $750,000 for CAP.
