Rollin’ on the River event on Colorado Riverfront Trail
Rollin’ on the River, STRiVE’s sixth annual walk and roll for a cause, is set for Saturday, Oct. 15, on the Colorado Riverfront Trail and the amphitheater at Western Colorado Botanical Gardens, 641 Struthers Ave.
Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the 3K walk and roll begins at 10 a.m.
“This event is perfect for all ages and stages of life,” a news release said. “The 3K is a lovely pilgrimage-like walk, perfect for families, kids, and anyone who wants a fulfilling fall day experience.”
Groups and teams are encouraged to participate in the 3K and cost for participation is $25 for adults, $15 for students and seniors ages 60 and older. Children are free. Registration includes a T-shirt, the activities, the walk, food and live entertainment.
This year, STRiVE is combining events with Hispanic Heritage Month’s closing ceremony from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. There will be Mexican food, cookies, balloons, face painting, puppets, crafts, coloring and performances by Nueva Generacion Folklorico Dancers and Mariachi Reyes de Jalisco Band. A Hispanic-theme lunch will feature warm bean, rice and cheese burritos.
A mural commissioned by Hispanic Affairs Project and the Western Colorado Latino Chamber of Commerce will be revealed at 2 p.m. under the Fifth Street overpass. The mural titled “Fernando” is by Jeremy Velasquez.
All proceeds from the events will go to support STRiVE services for local children with developmental disabilities and their families. Go to strivecolorado.org to register for the 3K and go to the website or call 256-8612 or 244-5506 for information.
