Picture This: DBA Happenings


Wheels of Justice cycling team surpasses its fundraising goal--by 23 percent!

________________________________________________________________________________

DBA President Mark Fogg and Wheels of Justice Team Captain Heather Purcell last month presented a check for $245,699.24 to The Children’s Hospital officials: Cary Larger, associate vice president of The Children’s Hospital Foundation, Dr. Stephen Hunger, chief of the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders and event manager Stacy Schafer.

Two hundred lawyers, business professionals, friends and families rode in the Courage Classic, a 157-mile tour through the mountains of Colorado July 26–28. Those Justice riders never quit: the day before the check presentation at the DBA Board of Trustees meeting on Sept. 11, another additional $1,665 rolled in from donors and cyclists!

Great job by everyone involved--see you next year!

Donations benefit children such as Allison Winn, age 8, who was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, the most common type of pediatric brain cancer. The brave girl and her father Brian Winn met with and inspired Wheels of Justice riders in May.

 

300 Children Get New School Supplies!

_________________________________________________________________________________

Smiles were abundant at The Denver Zoo on Aug. 10 as more than 300 low-income children and teens picked up new backpacks, lovingly packed with school supplies. Attorneys donated school supplies to The Community Action Network’s School Supply Drive, which ran from July 28 to Aug. 6 and was a great success. Congrats to the 60 firms who participated, benefiting Denver Public Schools and the Children’s Outreach Project. Thanks to all 55 volunteers who worked Saturday and Sunday to make a huge difference in many students’ lives! Looking forward to next year!

Volunteers from the legal community arrived in force at the CAN School Supply Drive backpack stuffing event. More than 300 backpacks were stuffed with supplies to help low-income children in the Denver community.

Lashaya Doyle, Kiara Olivas, Jada Doyle and Tavaunte Doyle are ready to start school off on the right foot with new school supplies.

Geared up and ready for school, Duncan Mercer and David Didic show off their backpacks while at the Denver Zoo.
