2024 Countdown

The Sunrise Stampede 5K is a family-oriented run/walk that has raised $290,000+ for student programs in the St. Vrain Valley School District.  All net proceeds support Special Education and Mental Health Teacher Innovation Grants.  These grants are awarded to teachers who have innovative ideas to enhance learning for students.  Help us continue a community tradition and support our students.
