Thanks to our wonderful local sponsors and neighbors in attendance in 2018, the event was able to raise $23,000 for our K-9 officers at last year’s event. As a veteran myself, there is nothing more fulfilling than serving my country, and I want to say how much I appreciate the generosity for such a worth-while cause!

This year, along with supporting our K-9 officers, the proceeds will be used to support Equine Deputies as well! With greater fundraising goals comes even bigger activities suited for every age, this is a local Colorado Springs event that you don’t want to miss!
