Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center of Colorado
The Center was founded in 1976 as the first gay advocacy organization in Denver. At a time when the vast majority of gays and lesbians were in the closet, The Center quickly became a safe haven of acceptance and empowerment; and it is upon this foundation that the organization has grown over the past 40 years. Now the largest community center of its kind in the Rocky Mountain region, The Center is the LGBT community's hub for information, social activities, support, and advocacy.
Willa's Wheels Runs for Rayby Ray of Hope Runners
Our Willa's Wheels relay team is Running for Ray in the Colfax Marathon on May 15th. While our race will have an end, the donations that we raise have the power to shine on as infinite rays of light into the lives of others, offering hope during a dark period. Right now, there are Colorado families who are unable to meet their most basic needs while loved ones go through cancer treatment. Please join us in providing emergency financial assistance for these families so they can pay rent, buy food, keep the heat on, and experience a little extra hope and joy.

Melissa Chananie's 5k for GreenLeafby Melissa Chananie
This year I joined the Board of Community Advisors for GreenLeaf, a local Denver nonprofit dedicated to youth leadership and food justice. On May 14th, I'll be participating in the Colfax 5k to help raise money and awareness for this awesome organization.
GreenLeaf offers seamless year-round programming for a diverse crew of youth from all across Denver, who earn a fair wage working 5 hours per week during our School Year Program and 20 hours per week during our Summer Program. A key focus of the Summer Program is developing leadership skills, building teamwork, and exploring personal and community identities. During the School Year Program, we shift to a focus on evaluation of the farm season, conducting research on crops and production methods, and planning for next year's farm.
GreenLeaf Youth Interns take home approximately half of our harvests to share with their friends and family, and the rest of our produce is sold at low prices or donated to those in need in our community.
Last year, GreenLeaf lost our farm at Sustainability Park and were forced move. This means we need to completely rebuild in a new location. The money raised during this 5k will help us build our new GreenLeaf Farm at the Smiley Campus in Park Hill, and continue running our innovative, award-winning youth leadership development programming in 2016.
Every $50 raised can sponsor a member of the Youth Crew to run/walk the Colfax 5k as a part of Team GreenLeaf!
