    It would be great to see this expanded to the Denver area. My nephew died at the age of 28 from Meningitis. I will be registering for the race as well…but I know if it were in Denver, you’d have a huge turn out and raise awareness and money. Perhaps have two races one in Loveland and one in Denver. Just a suggestion. Thanks for all you do.

      Hi Brenda,
      Most importantly, our family would like to express our deepest sympathy for the loss of your nephew. This disease is so devastating…It saddens us to hear of other families that are going through the pain of losing someone. Our dream would be to expand Sierra’s 5K Run/Walk throughout Colorado, or even Nationally- however planning this one race takes an incredible amount of energy, time and resources. Hopefully that is something that we can make happen in the future! We have had a few people put on a “Sierra’s Race” in other states – and we support them however possible!
      Thank you again for your support …See you on June 1st!
      Sincerely,
      Sierra’s Family
