Colfax Marathon Awards Banquet

This past May, the runners of Studio PBA, who featured three relay teams, the Revit Crashers, Rum Runners, and Team Slow Down for What?,  participated in the Colfax Marathon relay for the fifth year in a row.  The Colfax Marathon is one of the largest charitable races in the country, with over $100,000 in prize pool for those who align themselves with a non-profit partner.  Our charitable partner for the second year in a row was Food for Thought Denver, a Colorado non-profit whose mission is to eliminate weekend hunger for children in the Denver area by providing food PowerSacks, because they believe that no child should go hungry.  We have been working with Food for Thought for years, helping to bag “PowerSacks” for kids several times a year.  

This year our team placed second in the Colfax Marathon Corporate Relay group in the Construction, Engineering and Development category, earning a second place plaque, and most important, $1000 for Food for Thought Denver.  The awards ceremony was held June 19 at the DaVita building in Downtown Denver.  Studio PBA representatives Tearar Chan and Gina Metge were on hand to accept the check on behalf of our team of runners and sponsors.  
The training has already begun for 2019!

Studio PBA not only designs projects to improve Denver's infrastructure, we are invested in the community around which we work and play too.  The Colfax Collaborative is petitioning the City of Denver for funds to make improvements to Colfax Avenue for pedestrian safety and infrastructure.  Being located just off Colfax on Gilpin St., Studio PBA actively supports Colfax reinvestment and promoting of pedestrian re-activation.  Our own Derek Westby was interviewed by 7News yesterday evening and addressed the importance of pedestrian safety and promoting the reinvestment of Colfax itself.  To watch the news clip and learn more about this petition, click the link below.
