“Your Miles Matter” at the 2015 Kaiser Permanente Colfax Marathon!

February 07, 2015 | in What's Happening

When we bring our fun, interactive, and challenging programs to Denver area schools we give the students a strong message: Your Voice Matters! Your Actions Matter!

This year, with your help, we’d like to add to that mantra: Your Miles Matter! For the first time, Mirror Image Arts is proud to be an official Charity Partner of the 2015 Kaiser Permanente Colfax Marathon! On Sunday, May 17th, members and friends of our organization will be hitting the streets of Denver to run, have fun, and raise awareness for Mirror Image Arts.

You’re invited to come run with us! We’ll be forming special running teams, called “I’ve Got Your Back” Relay Teams, to participate in the Colfax Marathon’s exciting 5-person relay race. Instead of tackling a marathon alone, each team member gets to run a few miles of the course, with the final team member crossing the finish line at the end of the marathon. It really accents our belief that, if we work together, we can accomplish some pretty remarkable things!


Of course, if you’re the kind of athlete who would prefer to run the marathon or half-marathon by yourself, we would love to have you onboard, too! (And, quite frankly, we’re super impressed!) After the race, Mirror Image Arts will have an informational booth set up near the finish line, where race finishers will have the chance to learn about all the ways we’re working to bring an end to bullying in our Colorado schools and communities.

If you’re interested in running with us, or if you’d like to volunteer for the event, you can e-mail j.vonbokern@mirrorimagearts.org for all the information you need to get started!

We hope you can join us!
