Successful Volunteer Day at Sunrise Century

Amidst the splendor of the surrounding mountains, Team Cottonwood Institute arrived at the Sunrise Century Bike Race in Boulder on July 25, ready to conquer the world of route marshaling. We donned our orange safety vests and valiantly took on the challenge of the cowbell, ringing it passionately as the cyclists flew by our posts in their athletic glory. As the afternoon waned and the riders passed us by with less frequency, our route marshal duties came to an end. We packed up our gear and headed in for some much needed sustenance of BBQ and beer. And so it was, with full bellies and hearts, we headed off into the sunset, orange vests and cowbells reluctantly stored away until their reveal again next year.

Thanks to our volunteers, Sunrise Century, and its sponsors, we earned much needed funds that will be put to good use in support of our Jason F. Griffith Scholarship Fund – giving kids a chance to attend our courses, encouraging them to become leaders in their communities and beyond.

Thanks again to each of you for participating in the 3rd annual Sunrise Century.  We’re on a mission to build the finest cycling event in the state & your efforts this year took us one step closer to that goal!” (Alex Hearn, Sunrise Century)
