Hope House 5K raised more than $30k for teen moms

Posted

The fifth annual Hope House 5K & Fun Run held Saturday, May 5, at Lake Arbor Park in Arvada, brought together 300 participants to support Hope House of Colorado’s free self-sufficiency programs for teen moms.

The 5K, which raised over $30,000, was an official BolderBOULDER qualifying race. The event also included family-friendly activities such as the Diaper Dash, where children competed in smaller heats.

Lenny Archuleta was the overall 5K winner with a time of 19:13. Jessica Blatecky won the adult female division at 20:34.

“The local community has shown us incredible support since we first opened our doors 15 years ago,” said Lisa Steven, founder and executive director of Hope House. “Everyone who came out for our 5K & Fun Run plays a part in helping our teen moms build new futures — for themselves and their children. Together we are changing two generations.”

Hope House, a nonprofit organization that offers free educational and self-sufficiency programs to parenting teen moms from all over the Denver-metro area, will serve 200 teen moms and 300 children this year. For more information on Hope House, see hopehouseofcolorado.org.
