The Ninja Turtles are BACK for The Summer Games

June 6th, 2017

Denver Urban Scholars hosts The Summer Games on Saturday, June 24th. This will be the 4th annual Summer Games fundraiser and is sure to please new and repeat participants alike!

Desiree Jewell, Board Member and Marketing Committee Chair, is looking forward to competing with her team of family and friends, The Ninja Turtles.

“The Ninja Turtles are back for a three-peat and we can’t wait to participate in the DUS Summer Games again this year! We’ll be decked out in our neon green for the third time since I joined this amazing organization and cannot think of a better way to spend an afternoon! The third time is bound to be a charm when it comes to ping pong and we can’t wait to tackle our favorite human foosball (and those insane tricycles!). Every year the teams grow bigger and better and the costumes get louder and bolder – It’s fantastic!

Whether you are fan of a little friendly competition or simply looking to support a wonderful organization that gives back to local youth, this event has something for everyone! Pull together a team, sign up to volunteer, or bring the crew down and cheer us on during the live event on June 24 – your support and enthusiasm will go a long way!” –Desiree Jewell

Other Denver Urban Scholars Board Members who will be competing in or sponsoring The Summer Games include Stacey Hawes, Noel Wickwar, Mike Brown, David Spaulding, Joe Kelloff, and Ryan McGuffey.

Let the Games Begin!
