Rally The Valley

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Rally the Valley is a community-wide fundraiser on Saturday, September 19, 2015 to support patients at the Calaway Young Cancer Center at Valley View Hospital. There are multiple ways in which you may Rally. You may choose a 24.5-mile bike ride or a 4-mile walk through downtown Glenwood Springs or a 1.5- mile family walk — Peyton’s Parade. However you decide to Rally, all participants will come together for the Rally Party in Sayre Park. The party will be a treat for all with fabulous food, a beer garden and a kid’s zone with bouncy houses and more!

Rally for those who have survived cancer. Rally for those who we have lost. Rally to support the best cancer care for our community. For website and registration help or to inquire about sponsorship opportunities please email Dina Belmonte at Dina.Belmonte@vvh.org or Erika Leavitt at Erika.Leavitt@vvh.org.
