First American State Bank Fitness Festival raises $90,000 to benefit students
Nearly 3,000 people putting 6,000 “feet on the street” resulted in another record year for the First American State Bank Fitness Festival. For the second year in a row, the fun, family event raised $90,000 for the Community Asset Project (CAP), a non-profit partner of the Cherry Creek School District that helps students reach their individual and academic potential.
“The First American State Bank Fitness Festival provides funding for proven programs that help our students succeed in school and in life,” said Superintendent Mary Chesley.  “We are grateful to our community partners, led by First American State Bank and Kaiser Permanente, as well as the students, staff, family and community members who participated in this event, which will benefit our students for years to come.”
Olympic snowboarder and liver transplant survivor Chris Klug served as Grand Marshal for the FASB Fitness Festival, which was held Sept. 10 in Greenwood Village. The event featured the Kaiser Permanente 5K Run/Walk, fitness activities for the entire family, free entertainment, and delicious food from area restaurants. It is a national model for business-school-community partnerships.

Over the past 11 years, the FASB Fitness Festival has raised more than $750,000 for CAP, which is used to fund vital programs including drug/alcohol prevention, suicide prevention, Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS), and other important programs.  Get more information about CAP at
FASB Fitness Festival organizers are already planning for next year’s event, which is scheduled for Sept. 8, 2012. For more information, visit the Cherry Creek Schools Fitness Festival page.
