Denver nonprofit partners with organizations across America to bring fun and raise awareness to their ongoing sustainable community project in Kirugu Uganda.
DENVER (July 3, 2014) — Rays of Grace’s mission “Empower, Educate, Sustain” comes to life as over 50 participants gather in Colorado and California to climb 14ersto raise money to build a new schoolhouse. On July 12, 2014, the five philanthropic teams will get elevated in hopes to raise $50,000 to begin breaking ground on a new solar powered schoolhouse.
Known for impacting through collaborating with likeminded world changers, Rays of Grace founder Britt Froistad and team created the annual fundraiser around the energy, passion and love of young people around Denver, adding participants in Texas and California to the Elevate 2014 partnership. Last years Elevate for Education provided the funding to purchase a plot of land in Kirugu Uganda, planting the seed of hope for a fully sustained school house, almost entirely powered by the sun. With over quadruple the participants this year, we know that a new structure is just the beginning.
Drew Harris from Boulder company Breeze Bars states, “Breeze Bars is ecstatic to be a sponsor of Elevate for Education this year and completely support locals like Rays of Grace. Our passion for happy and healthy lifestyles go beyond the boarders of our country, but reach a greater need like sustaining the students at the Rays of Grace school in Uganda”.
“We want to raise awareness about how literally anyone can help change the world,” said Kael Robinson, founder of Live Worldly. “Through Rays of Grace’s Elevate for Education, we can help children in Uganda go to school to get a better education. We can’t wait to hike Missouri Mountain on Team Stiletto Pumps in the Club!”.
The Elevate for Education climb will take place at 6:30AM on July 12, 2014 at multiple mountains across Colorado and San Diego. Join us for a celebratory BBQ on July 13 at Washington Park in Denver at 2pm.
Rays of Grace is also providing donors and climbers with a goodie bag from our partners and sponsors around the world. Be sure to check out the good times had at last years Elevate here.
