Family Star's first 5k Fun Walk/Run was a success!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our first 5k Fun Walk/Run on Sunday, June 5 at Sloan’s Lake Park! We would also like to thank those who donated and spread the word. Your efforts made the event a success! We enjoyed the beautiful Colorado weather, connected with Family Star families, employees, and supporters, and enjoyed delicious treats provided by our generous sponsors. We are proud to announce that we raised just under $17,000, surpassing our $10,000 goal! We were able to achieve this through registrations, donations, and our generous financial sponsor, MegaStar Financial. These funds will be applied to Family Star’s general operating costs to ensure that we can continue to stay true to our vision of providing quality Montessori early childhood education to the children we serve and equipping their families with resources they need to thrive.

It was wonderful to see Family Star supporters, past and present, getting in a little exercise, sharing memories, and celebrating 25 years of service in the Denver metro area. This event would not have been possible without the generous support of our Development Committee, staff and community volunteers, vendors, and sponsors including:
