Saturday marked the 23rd Rendezvous Run 4 Independence, a run/walk that benefits the Colorado Children’s Hospital.

Over the years this event has sponsored hundreds of children from the Denver Children’s Hospital Dialysis Center to attend summer camp at Snow Mountain Ranch at the YMCA of the Rockies.

It has given these children and their families a respite from the ongoing weekly demands and confinements that accompany kidney disease and kidney dialysis.

This community event has been made possible by the combined expertise of the Fraser & Winter Park Chamber of Commerce, Rendezvous Colorado, Snow Mountain Ranch and community support and sponsorship.

“We want to give particular thanks to Catherine and her team at our Chamber of Commerce,” said Kent and Jancie Hughes. “It is their organization, dedication, and hard work that leads to the success of this and the rest of our summer events. And thank you to all of the runners, walkers, bicyclers and volunteers who made this year’s Run 4 Independence the successful and special day it was. You made an impact on the lives of Colorado children with kidney disease and their families.”
