2024 Colfax Marathon

May 17-19

The Colfax Marathon is Denver’s largest running weekend and we are proud to be an official charity partner once again! That means, when you register to run for JPP, you are running toward a community without generational poverty! Whether you're up for the challenge of the Marathon, Marathon Relay, Half Marathon, Urban 10 Miler, or 5K, there's a race to suit everyone's pace. Be part of the thrill and support a great cause! 

Not a runner? No problem!

You can show your support by donating to our Colfax Marathon Fundraiser to help us create a memorable celebration for our high school graduates. Together, we can make a difference and show our students that their achievements are celebrated and valued.

Jeffco Prosperity Partners raised $7,000 to support families in our JPP program  A special shout out to marathon runner extraordinaire, Mary Rueda, who has gone above and beyond to raise over $5,000 for the fundraiser! Mary is an avid runner and Jeffco employee who has been an incredible advocate for our mission. 

Thank you, NREL!
