Shortcut benefits Special Olympics

For 39 years the community has come together to sponsor, volunteer and participate in the Strawberry Shortcut 10K, 5K and Family Fun Run.

Special Olympics is very proud to be the recipient of the race proceeds. Thanks goes out to the Shortcut’s main sponsor, Bank of Colorado and its staff throughout the valley for presenting this wonderful event. Local businesses offering their continued sponsorships: Deja Brew, First Floor North Design, Glenwood Chiropractic Center, Glenwood Medical Associates, Intermountain Distributing, the Rick Chavez Family, Sunlight Mountain Resort, Valley View Hospital, Vicki Lee Green Realtors, Woody Creek Distillers, YEH and Associates and Zheng Asian Bistro.

Thanks to all of you for supporting the Strawberry Shortcut and Special Olympics. Also, thanks to the Glenwood Springs Police Department and A-1 Traffic Control as well as to Kevin and Joy White, race directors. We appreciate your time and energy. Again, thanks to the dedicated volunteers and racers that helped make the day a special one.
