Our team has built a wonderful home here in Denver, and a large part of that is due to the support from our community. We have made it our mission to give back. We set a personal goal to participate in at least one community-based or local charity activity every month. Big or small, we want to reach our to our neighbors and support the community that supports us.
If you have a community gathering or charity we should check out, let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s keep the momentum going and help build each other up!
June 10, 2019 through July 15, 2019 – Roll Out the Barrels Food Drive Our team is supporting the Denver Bar Association Young Lawyer’s Division and Metro Caring of Denver‘s joint event this summer.

Our team is supporting Rush Cycle’s Charity Ride for Girl’s on the Run. This non-profit teaches life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large. Running is used to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. Important social, psychological, and physical skills and abilities are developed and reinforced throughout the program. Ride fees go direction to the charity.

June 22, 2019 – Rush Cycle Highlands
Our team is supporting Rush Cycle Highland’s Charity Ride for CMV suffers and research. CMV is a virus more common than Zika with similar outcomes. Many women carry this virus without a single inkling until their child is born with catastrophic medical consequences, such as deafness, blindness, cognitive delays, and microcephaly. This ride will support research and education, as well as clinics where moms can go if their child is born with issues related to CMV. Come ride with us. Ride fees go direction to the charity. For every rider who attends, Queener Law will make an additional donation. Learn more about CMV here.

This incredible organization has set their minds to making Colorado the safest state in the country for homeless pets. They work with shelters across the state to support them in saving homeless and treatable pets, getting them the care, shelter, and TLC they need. For every donation made, our team will make an additional donation to further support the cause. Check out more about No Kill Colorado here.
April 2019 – Rush Cycle Highland’s Show Drive Supporting Milestones for Maxwell
Throughout the month of April 2019, Rush Cycle and Queener Law collected new and used shoes to support Milestones for Maxwell. This organization was set up for a sweet child named Maxwell who has a rare genetic disease that was wreaking havoc on his neurological system. The disease is too rare for a formal name and is only known by the gene – SLC6A1. SLC6A1 causes developmental disabilities, a movement disorder and the onset of a debilitating form of epilepsy along with regression between 3 – 4 years. All treatment is experimental and extremely expensive. All shoes donated were weighed, and the organization was given a donation per pound. In addition, our team made a donation per shoe donated. Finally, after the donations and weighing, the shoes were donated to charities supplying shoes for those in need. To learn more about Milestones for Maxwell, click here.
March 9, 2019 – Zuni Street Brewing Company
Our team celebrated the success of a local business by having games and swag at the Zuni Street Brewing Company’s 2nd Anniversary Party. The neighborhood came out to celebrate our neighbor’s success, including local food trucks, other local businesses, and local bands. We played a putt putt game and listened to Denver’s finest bluegrass bands. To find out more about this budding local business, check out Zuni’s website here.
