By now, you are probably tired of being inside. Early winter storms, temperatures below freezing and icy roads have helped you to remember that, although winter is beautiful, it is also exhausting. You can rebel against the snow by taking part in the Polar Prowl, benefiting Make-A-Wish Colorado, Saturday, Jan. 11, beginning at 8 a.m.

The Colorado Polar Prowl will consist of a 5k, 10k and half marathon. Choose the race that fits best for your schedule and skill-set and take off on a fun run in the crisp winter air! The trail has been USATF certified to ensure that it is a safe course for all athletes. You can pick up your race packet early or the day of your run. Winners will be awarded, but all athletes will receive a medal for participating. Along with a medal, runners will receive a long sleeved t-shirt, a free post-race meal, and custom race bibs! Invite your friends and come out in support of Make-A-Wish this January.

The location of the race was recently changed to the Stenger Soccer Complex at 11200 W 58th Ave, Arvada. Mark Jan. 11 on your calendar and remember to write down that address so you don’t miss out on this great opportunity to make an impact in the life of a child.

Get Out Of The House And Help Make A Wish Come True!

Attending an event like the Polar Prowl in Colorado can have a major impact in the lives of Wish Kids. One of the first Make-A-Wish chapters, Colorado has provided more than 4,000 wishes to children throughout the state. During the last year, they provided more than 245 wishes to children. These wishes have provided opportunities for Wish Kids and their families to enjoy a day free from the burden of their medical conditions. It can be one of the most joyous memories for a young child, during a difficult time in their life.

Your registration for the Polar Prowl will help Make-A-Wish continue to provide wishes. You not only get to enjoy some time with friends while improving your overall health, you will be helping a child in need! Take advantage of this fun event and get out of that cabin fever blues. Details and registration info can be found at the race website. Advanced registration ends soon, so gather your friends and family and register today!
