The Summer Games

Let the games begin! Join 350 members of the Denver community to raise funds for Denver Urban Scholars. Challenge yourself physically, build team spirit, and interact with new faces while participating in Olympics-themed events. Each team of four to six will compete for a gold, silver, or bronze medal in a series of events. In true Olympics fashion, a medal count will determine which team will take home prizes and earn the right to call themselves the Champions!
