Race for the Cure® FFR TEAM

October 2, 2014 • Fitness • Views: 1836

The TAMJAMS Family Team walked in the Race for the Cure® in downtown Denver, CO and raised funds for the Susan G Komen organization. It was incredible to witness a literal sea of people in PINK, who participated by the thousands to support the cause (30,000 to be exact!). This walk had an impact on our family. It was a great teaching opportunity for my kiddos and helped raise their awareness of what people go through. They were happy to proudly wear on their back the names of those they were walking in support of. My young boys loved seeing all the Star Wars characters involved with the race…some great photo moments!

This cause is close to my heart as my friend and close family member are battling breast cancer right now.  We wanted to show them just how much we love and support them as they go through this tough journey. 

GO PINK RIBBON! Our hearts go out to all friends and families that have been touched by this disease.


 LOCATION:

We stayed in the heart of downtown on 16th Street Mall at the Courtyard Marriott. We fell in love with downtown Denver and the close surrounding area. So much great food and local flavor! We walked everywhere. 


 FOOD:

Race day started with a quick bite at Moe’s Broadway Bagels to rev our engines and after the walk, we enjoyed brunch at Sam’s No 3 (which has been featured on the Food Network). 

Our time was short, so we were not able to get to two other locations we wanted to visit. Mad Greens we SO wish we would have stopped by and grabbed something to go for our road trip home. There were ZERO healthy choices along our route back. 🙁

And Snooze…you are a Fit Family FAV! We loved you when we stopped in San Diego, CA earlier this year and we will HAVE to catch you next time!

 


 FAMILY FUN!:

We got in some FREE mini golf at Skyline Park, located on 16th Street Mall and Arapahoe. This is a wonderful find for families! It is all FREE and includes games such as ping pong, bocce ball, ladderball, mini golf and board games.


 UPCOMING:

During our trip, we also filmed some wonderful Fit Family Robinson sessions at the lake in Loveland, CO and at Wild Horse Canyon in WY. Watch for videos and future posts!
