The 5th annual Be A Tool 5k Run (On Small Business Saturday) is being held to help support the growth of the Neighborhood Rehab Project. In September of this year, over 1,000 volunteers came together in Golden, Arvada, Englewood, and Idaho Springs to help work on projects for folks in need of warm, safe and dry conditions. Proceeds from this race will go directly toward future projects in 2018 & 2019.

Register early, the first 200 registrants will receive an Elf hat. Put on your most festive holiday attire and join us for a fun morning of activities supporting Small Business Saturday as well as a great cause!
