Colorado Multisport in Boulder, Colorado hosting wildfire relief event
Posted Sep 08 2010 5:16pm
Editor's Note:We just received this email from our friends at Colorado Multisport in Boulder. As you know thousands of people have been forced to flee the Fourmile Canyon wildfire with perhaps hundreds of them losing their homes to the savage fire. Please help if you can, the important "how" and "when" info is below.
All of us at Colorado Multisport are shocked and saddened by the wildfire still burning in the foothills just west of Boulder. Our hearts go out to the entire community that is affected by this tragedy, and we are in awe of the brave men and women who are risking their lives to fight the blaze. We are reaching out to you, our awesome community of athletes and fans, our family, to bring donations by tomorrow, Thursday night from 4-8pm.
We are hosting this event in conjunction with our neighbors Common Threads and Sports Garage, along with the wonderful folks from StrEat Chefs and Comida, who will be out in full-force with their street food! There will be food, fun, maybe even some music, and the event is sure to be a good time and a great way to help out those in our community who need our help.
Any and all donations are more than welcome: clothing and toiletries for fire victims and evacuees, dog or cat food for the Boulder Valley Humane Society, and any extra energy food you might be able to spare for the firefighters! There are many who need our help. If you have any extra or older triathlon equipment that you would like to donate to any athletes who are displaced by the fire we will be sure to get it into the hands of those who need it! The fire victims are in need of the basics right now but soon enough they will want to bring their lives back closer to normal and we should do what we can to help them in that!
Any of our wonderful customers who bring by a donation will get 10% off any one item in the store... ANY ONE ITEM!! Do something good for another and good karma will come right back at you! Offer valid through 9/10/10 but other than that NO RESTRICTIONS APPLY!
As well, packet pick-up for the Harvest Moon Triathlon is taking place concurrently from 4-6pm, so if you're stopping by to pick up your race packet do a good deed and bring by an item to donate!
