Pioneers Race to Success
Cripple Creek Victor School District is full of students and employees that are passionate about supporting each other. We want to support our athletes and community with an outdoor track and field stadium. Currently, we have a cracked asphalt circle with dead grass in the middle… our students make this work and try hard- but it does not instill pride. Cripple Creek Junior-Senior High School is located at about 9,500 feet elevation- this track and field complex could be a perfect place for Olympic and professional athletes to train! This will make the facility more than just a huge addition to the school, but potentially for the Colorado community as a whole. But we cannot make this happen without a lot of support. So we are holding a virtual race as a fundraiser to start the train. Run with us and support our race to success! You can run, walk, or crawl with us virtually from anywhere! If you live close, you can also come out in person on July 3rd. The starting line will be at Cripple Creek Victor High School. If you come in person, there will be post-race water and snacks available. If you would like to donate an additional amount to this cause- please send via snail mail to CCV Track and Field, 410 N B Street, Cripple Creek, CO 80813.
