We grew again in 2011! This year nearly 500 runners, walkers and families signed up for the fourth annual Father’s Day 5K run and family fun run/walk – an increase of nearly 30%! Thanks to the enthusiasm and generosity of the community for their support of the Apex Park and Recreation District Foundation – a nonprofit organization supporting Apex Park and Recreation District community recreation.

All the proceeds went to the Foundation, along with the proceeds from the APRDF Car Show, also held on June 19 at the Apex Center.

The seventh annual car show has a well-deserved reputation for quality cars, and this year was no exception. Admirers strolled through the Apex Center parking lot to see 181 classic cars and cycles – up from 140 in 2010! More than 1000 visitors checked out the show, enjoyed refreshments, visited vendors and took part in kids’ activities.

Many thanks to all the run and car show sponsors: Seminole Energy Services, Page Advertising Specialty, Push-Pedal-Pull, Discover Health, Miller Contracting, Protech, Tutor Doctor, Colorado Lottery, Arvada Printery, Sunflower Market, Sportline, Arvada-Jefferson Kiwanis, Izze, Sam’s Club, Arvada Press, Saunders Construction, Arvada Triathlon Club, and Hot 107.1, Pepsi, Hi Country Wire & Telephone, Arvada Rent-Alls and Custom Flag Company. Thanks also to Pridemark Paramedic Services, the Arvada Fire Protection District, Arvada Colts Baseball and the City of Arvada.
