We designed Hard As Nails Obstacle Mud Race as an opportunity to bring the community together for a cause. Hard As Nails is a race that is run in Colorado, made by Coloradans and supports local communities, develops local partnerships and outreach, and builds an event that unites the community. We believe that an event of this size has the opportunity to offer altruistic means. In coordination with the City of Westminster, we go to help support two local non-profit organizations: Growing Home and the Westminster Legacy Foundation.
Growing Home helps to support underserved populations in the Denver-Metro area, providing opportunities for food, shelter, healthcare, and homeless prevention programs. Founded in 1998, the organization helps support families in times of crisis by assisting with emergency rent and utility payments, affordable housing initiatives, life skills classes on topics such as employment, finances, and nutrition, and free medical services through a pop-up clinic. Furthermore, Growing Home also helps support education by supporting literacy classes, pre-school initiatives, tutoring services, and providing school supplies for students.
