2020 Sunrise Stampede is Going Virtual!

Published August 10, 2020

June 2020

These difficult times have changed the way we live and conduct business, both locally and nationally. Our teachers and students in St. Vrain Valley Schools have been tasked with online learning a historic health crisis facing the world. Of course, the needs of our students remain. Our hope is that the Sunrise Stampede is an event that celebrates and supports students with special needs, especially given what is going on with this current COVID-19 health crisis.

The Sunrise Stampede is a family-oriented 10K or 2-mile run/walk that has raised $225,000+ for student programs in the St. Vrain Valley Schools. All net proceeds support Teacher Innovation Grants for students with special needs. These grants are awarded to teachers who have innovative ideas to enhance learning for students.

Since we cannot be together on race day, we are planning for a virtual race. Participants can sign up for their selected distance, 10K or 2-mile, and complete the race on a course of their choice from August 6th to August 8th. Participants will then log their miles via our online tracking system (coming soon!). Compete and help support our St. Vrain Valley Schools students with special needs!

Mark your calendars and watch for information about our live broadcast event on August 8th, Sunrise Stampede‘s day.
