About Hard As Nails Obstacle Mud Race Community Mission:
Hard As Nails Obstacle Mud Race believes we must give back to the community and thus supports two local nonprofits in the Westminster area that are doing great work for the local community with our 2015 Event: 1)The Westminster Legacy Foundation and 2) Growing Home.
In 2014, Hard As Nails Obstacle Mud Race gave 9% of its gross receipts and 99% of its net profits to Growing Home.
In 2015, we have added the partnership of the Legacy Foundation, so all sponsorships are made payable to the Legacy Foundation (are tax deductible). Thus we can increase our impact in helping the local community and accomplish our mission.
About Westminster Legacy Foundation:
The Westminster Legacy Foundation (WLF) was established in 2001 to support and enhance programs and projects that benefit the Westminster community and its citizens. As a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization, the Westminster Legacy foundation can receive and distribute private resources to pursue the betterment of the community. The WLF seeks funds from private sources to build a pool of permanent capital for local philanthropic purposes and distributes such funds for public needs in the areas of youth programs, senior programs , open space and parks, education and library services, public safety, cultural arts, social services, community relations, and historical legacy.
The WLF provides a means for individuals to contribute on a tax deductible basis to the betterment of our community with the confidence that the contributions are appropriately allocated. Contributors will receive the personal satisfaction of knowing that their resources are being used in a meaningful way to benefit the Westminster community. In addition, there will be many opportunities for contributors to receive community recognition for their generosity.
About Growing Home:
Growing Home is an anti-poverty organization “Nurturing Children, Strengthening Families, and Transforming Lives” in Adams County Colorado. We believe in taking a holistic, comprehensive approach to fighting poverty, addressing both the immediate and long-term needs of families. We utilize a collaborative model that engages the community in providing emergency services, and we also work to understand and address the root causes of homelessness, hunger, and the achievement gap of low-income children. Our services give adults the tools they need to provide for their families, and simultaneously work with the children of those families to break cycles of poverty and prevent crisis in the future. By working with clients t o develop long-term skills, we move both children and adults on the path to success. Whether we are instructing mothers and fathers on how to read to their babies, teaching children the literacy and psycho-social skills needed to complete school, giving nutritious food to a hungry family, or creating a job plan with parents in our shelter program, we know that using researched methods to combat poverty will help both the children and adults of the families we serve.
