Prior to the Tour, the 9th Annual RTR Prologue Experience, a premier fundraiser for The Denver Post Community Foundation, took place with participants riding alongside celebrity cyclists over Hoosier Pass into Fairplay, all while discovering the gold rush in the restored mining town of South Park City and touring the Old Country Boy Mine, one of the largest and most famous gold mines in Breckenridge.
For the month of July, The Denver Post ACTS (Assisting the Community Through Service) employee volunteers gathered and donated school supplies to benefit MEED – Minority Enterprise & Educational Development – for homeless students attending a Denver Public School in the fall. This year Chatton, Bonnie, Connie and their team put on a Stuff The Bus Carnival which brought employees together to have fun while helping students in need. With more than $1,700 in donations raised, the shopping was plentiful and it took a Chevy Suburban and a Grand Cherokee to deliver everything to the actual School Bus. We are grateful to everyone who donated these much needed backpacks and school supplies!
