Meet our Sponsors :: 5th annual family 5k walk/run



Hello! If you live around here, you've probably noticed the pretty 5k posters hanging in various locations around Bayfield, Durango, and Ignacio!

I figured I'd take a few minutes to remind you what the Family 5k Walk/Run is, and to introduce you to this year's fantastic sponsors!!

I've got Evley Love snoozing in the Moby and True & Elle West are taking their nap...I'll make this brief in hopes that I will be able to get it posted today, and I know you're busy too!

The Family 5k Walk/Run is the Durango Pregnancy Center's annual fundraiser. DPC is a faith based, not for profit, organization that cares for the people of our community by listening and offering support to those who are facing expected or unexpected pregnancy, as well as any concerns that may coincide with sex and pregnancy. The center is filled with love and is essential to the overall health and wellbeing of our community.

Despite the fact that DPC does not receive any state or federal funding, all of their services are free. Generous individuals and businesses within our community are responsible for keeping the Durango Pregnancy Center's doors open! The Family 5k Walk/Run is a fun way to get out together and raise awareness & money for the center!

All of the Family 5k Walk/Run's proceeds are split 50/50 between DPC and Best for Babes Foundation. BFB is also a non-profit organization who's mission, to support women throughout their breastfeeding journey no matter how big or small, is inline with DPC's mission to love, educate, help, and give hope.

You can go ahead and register online for the 5th annual Family 5k Walk/Run by clicking on the poster above, or keep on reading for sponsor info and this year's delicious brunch menu!!

Yours truly is of course the Family 5k Walk/Run's presenting sponsor. I've got some fun things planned...stay tuned to the PRETTYblog for the details of our interactive booth and our prize giveaways at this year's 5k!

The following sponsors make the Family 5k Walk/Run possible. Thanks to their generosity, 100% of the monies earned from event entry fees and interactive booths are donated to DPC and BFB- none needs to be kept to fund the event itself!

*Sponsors are listed in order of generosity. Please click on each name to be redirected to their websites, and learn more about each business/organization!





Serious Delights has sponsored each of the five annual Family 5k Walk/Runs to date, and each year their contribution becomes more & more impressive!! Serious Delights Bakery is dedicated to inspiring happiness by creating the finest fresh baked goods. They bake from scratch, by combining organic & local ingredients with sustainable business practices, integrity and an extraordinary enthusiasm for detail! For me, Serious Delights has become as much a part of the Family 5k Walk/Run as DPC & BFB! I always look forward to the brunch that they provide for the event. Without further ado, here's this year's brunch menu:

Traditional mini croissants
Mini smoked ham & white cheddar mini croissants
Roasted jalapeno & smoked bacon mini croissants
Sauteed spinach & goat cheese mini croissants
Mini cinnamon rolls
Mini lemon coconut muffins (gluten free)
Mini pumpkin spice muffins (gluten free)
Mini chocolate dipped macaroons
Mini chocolate chip cookies
Mini oatmeal raisin cookies

Um, YUM right!!!?! If you were on the fence about registering for the event, I bet you're not now! We will also have fresh fruit and coffee from Starbucks!! To heck with running! Come to eat and donate to two amazing organizations! Sheesh...and I've said nothing about the incredible prize giveaway and all the fun that's in store for the kiddos! Btw, I'm totally kidding about the running part. The Walk/Run along the river is all part of it- Uh-Maze-Ing. Only in Durango. For Real.

Alright. So much for brief. I can't seem to do it. There's simply too much to tell you! The family 5k is simply too much fun!! Register for the Family 5k Walk/Run NOW online, or print your mail-in registration form and mail it by this coming Saturday, or simply show up on race-day. Note the date, location, and same-day registration arrival time on the poster above.

*Perks to registering online NOW: Save $10 on all registration fees before August 16 {prices will INCREASE $10 after August 16}, and the first 100 registrants will receive an awesome goodie bag {can't be guaranteed on race day, but is likely when registering online!}.
